"Preferred Lies is the book Andrew Greig wrote after surviving a serious illness. Inspired to pick up his clubs again after a 35-year off-and-on hiatus from the game, Greig travelled to 18 courses on his road to recovery, from the wild, sheep-tended links of Orkney and Iona, to industrial Bathgate and to the more celebrated fairways of Scotland's great links courses. It was his journey towards re-connection with being alive, his 'Fairway to Heaven'." "Preferred Lies is a book of one man's connection with the ancient game, 'how it feels to play' and of his relationship with the people he has met and golfed with over the years. It is a story of a father's relationship with his son and the rite of passage into manhood. It is a book of reflections, not only on the pleasures of the game and the commune with nature, but also on friendship, family and ghosts from the past."--BOOK JACKET.… (més)

Disappointing for its stumbling themes and the author's professed love for golf yet general lack of appreciation for its history, customs, and rules. The edition I read had a number of unfortunate typographical errors, also an unforgivable misrepresentation of "Stapleford" [sic] scoring. The title defies explanation, and the loose ends and companions of the author's journey are most often just left along the road. ( )

I am not a golfer, but I come from a moderately keen golfing family, and live in Scotland, so I'm no stranger to the game. Even as a non-golfer, I found Greig's book interesting – it actually made me more enthusiastic about golf. However, I was mostly reading to learn both about Greig and some of the more unusual golf courses in Scotland. As ever, Greig's prose is beautiful, particularly his descriptions of scenery. My only criticism of this book is that it tailed off towards the end. I felt that Greig had decided that he was going to write about 18 golf courses, and then struggled to find the last 6 – in my opinion, he could have left out much of the 'hippy stuff'. An enjoyable read though. ( )
