Présentation de l'éditeur

Spotlighting Moe Norman, a golfer admired by Tiger Woods himself, this memoir by a sportswriter who knew Moe Norman for 40 years details Moe's unique and controversial life. The record investigates how, despite winning almost every title in Canada and having his name celebrated in golf circles around the globe, Norman failed to make a mark in the wider world of golf yet still referred to himself as “the happiest guy on two feet.” His uncommon swing, mannerisms, and lifestyle are explored, illustrating how he played very quickly, never took a practice swing, often repeated phrases when talking, and lived in motel rooms most of his life. Norman’s crippling insecurity and introversion are revealed, documenting how these conditions kept him from publicly succeeding at the highest levels of play. Penned by a sports journalist who knew the subject for 40 years, this study examines Moe Norman’s utterly exceptional technique, his character, how he lived his life well in spite of his significant handicaps, and what this most sensitive and peculiar man meant to those who knew him.

Ce livre permet de découvrir la très riche personnalité de ce golfeur hors du commun, autiste, inventeur d'un swing unique en son genre, tellement simple et tellement logique. Comme l'a dit Tiger Woods: " il y a 2 golfeurs qui `possèdent` leur swing: Ben Hogan et Murray `Moe` Norman".

First off I am not a big book reader but if it has to do with Moe Norman I will do my best getting my hands on it. The book is not a lesson book on how to swing like Moe but if you want an understanding of who Moe Norman was I think he did a real nice respectable job on it I enjoyed it immensely. It does add to knowing who Murray "Moe" Norman really was also it was possibly the best that I read on Moe. Yes there are story's that we all have heard of but some with a few twist that I even thought could have been the reason for other player actions and one of them seems to have been true. I will leave that for you to read. I am glad and would buy the book again. I am well pleased with it. I am so glad Lorne Rubenstein who is the Author of this book titled once again "Moe and Me". He kind of fills in a lot of the blanks on the Moe Norman story's that all of us have heard while we have been following Moe for these years 10 yrs for me. At first you will learn how and where Lorne met Moe or as he puts it "when he encountered Moe" for the first time when he was 13 yrs old, way back the the early 60's. So now this is where he starts and goes though all the years he knew Moe all the way to Moe's death. He shares story's from friends and family of Moe's. So again if you like Moe you will Like this book. Can't go wrong. John (Swingmachine).

Lorne has done a superb book on Canada's best male golfer on the 20th century, Murray Moe Norman. I played maybe 500 games with Moe and feel Lorne probably gets closest to the real Moe. Canada's greatest golf writer nails Canada's best and most unique player. A must read, better if you read Feeling of Greatness first.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No exaggerations or gossip in this moving tribute to Moe Norman. 8 avril 2012
Par Mr. Ivan Morris - Publié sur
Anyone who ever met Moe Norman or saw him hit a ball never forgot him. Moe was unique in so many ways; one of the most unusual golfers ever. With his exaggerated, wide, stance and his arms at full stretch, he whacked ball after ball as straight as a die. "You'd pay me a million dollars - a million dollars - to be able to do that!" He'd challenge onlookers belligerently. The same people he would shun - if they ever approached him anywhere outside a golfing environment.
Only a small coterie of trusted friends were made welcome into Moe's life. One of few who got close to Moe on a regular basis was Lorne Rubenstein, a vastly experienced, golf writer who happens to have a Masters Degree in Psychology. For years, Lorne wanted to write a book about Moe but it took him a long time to complete the project in a way that would be worthy of Moe's memory. He has certainly managed to do it - it's a first class read. With 'thousands' of golf books under my belt, I ought to know! There's no gossip to be found in Moe & Me - just a meditation on the mysteries of the mind, a game, and the intersection of the two.
-Ivan Morris.

he would have been a world beater.

A simple book that I couldn't put down. It helps that I'm an avid golfer and have heard his name forever.

Just what the book should be.

I love that Snead was scared of him.

Lorne Rubenstein is probably the only person capable of writing a book of this quality about Moe Norman.
Rubenstein is not just a hack regurgitating gossip about a golfer. He studied psychology, knew Norman since he was a kid and he's a writer not prone to exaggeration or sensationalism.
This is an honest, in-depth, warts-and-all study of one of the most puzzling players in the history of golf. No one will ever come as close to understanding and explaining Moe.
Well worth reading.
