    It's Only a Game: Words of Wisdom from a Lifetime in Golf. just finished reading it few days ago and wanna share a quick review here. in a nutshell if you enjoy Mr Burke videos and Jackie's Wisdom corner on this site go get this book and you wont be disappointed. its fun to read and while i found it a light read its certainly not light on content and its quality. its kinda unique little book in a sense that the topics there cover alot from both life and golf. one cannot call it instructional book yet it really is. and you get a sense that all those pearls of wisdom if you like, as light and easy as they may sound to you, come from a lifetime of work and experience. to give you an idea there is one story where somebody asked Mr Burke to look at their swing and after he did and then offered a suggestion the guy said thanx for the "tip". Mr Burke then makes his point that it took him 60 years to acquire the knowledge necessary in order to make that suggestion. thats pretty much what this book is like ie short punches of wisdom where it counts with alot of thought behind them. the book is loosely structured and you can pick it up and start reading from any page or chapter you like. overall i really did enjoy reading it and highly recommend it to folks who can truly appreciate what Mr Burke has to say. my only complaint is that Mr Burke's signature at the end of the book is just a copy, wish it was a real one ;)
