Admittedly, I purchased this one sight unseen. From the description, I assumed there would be summarized encyclopedic information (stats, records, earnings, etc.), but there is none of that. Only a few chronological listings of specific events. And those don't even list earnings, just scores. Then there's a section with very short biographies of the top 200 (in the editors opinion) players and the top courses. All in all, this is a book of lists with a few historical scores, not an encyclopedia.
Not an encyclopedia in the truest sense but absolutely the most comprehensive book on the game I've ever read. It has superb accounts of the majors, the main professional tours, player profiles and course reviews. But it's not just factual and informative, it's an entertaining read as well and one that will provoke strong debate - as all the best books do. Derek Lawrenson clearly knows his stuff and this shines through in the text.
