"It's always rewarding when a masterful writer digs deeply into a tough subject and comes closer to the truth than anyone else. Tom Callahan not only does this in "His Father's Son," he entertains along the way." -Dan Jenkins, author of "Dead Solid Perfect" and "Fairways and Greens" Praise for Tom Callahan: "Tom Callahan does to words what Tiger Woods does to golf balls. Under his spell, they soar, spin, and do the samba on the head of a matchstick. There's nobody better." -Rick Reilly, ESPN "Tom knows the game of golf as well as anyone in the business." -Jack Nicklaus "Callahan could make a book about agricultural reform in mid-Wales in the 13th century sing and dance." -John Hopkins, "The Times" of London "When I was just starting out, before I played in either a Masters or a U.S. Open, I played with Tom Callahan in Pretoria. So, we go back a ways, twenty years. To me, he's the Jack Nicklaus of the golf writers." -Ernie Els "Tom Callahan writing about anything is like Julia Child saying, 'If you don't have any plans, stick around and I'll make you dinner.'" -Tony Kornheiser, ESPN's "Pardon The Interruption"
