James Dodson

I love to read - fiction, non fiction, books, magazines, blogs, and what have you. When I eat cereal for breakfast, I read the cereal box. What the heck is niacin? Please pass the riboflavin.

One of of my favorite authors is James Dodson. His "Final Rounds" is one of my favorite alltime books. Mr. Dodson is the author of "Ben Hogan; the Authorized Biography", "The Dewsweepers" and he worked with Arnold Palmer on Arnold's " A Golfers Life". Mr. Dodson has also written several non-golf books, two of which I have read and very much enjoyed: "Faifthful Travelers" and "The Road to Somewhere". Mr. Dodson's newest book "A Son of the Game" is just coming out. His books are about people. His words make you feel emotion for whatever his subject is; famous golfers, his father, his kids or even a garden. I recommend you buy a copy of his newest work and go back and read his other works.

Well for me, back to the cereal box.

  1. I enjoy your comments. You should consider writing your own book. Im sure their is a twisted circle of people in our society that would enjoy it. I know I'm not the only one!
