Review quote 'This book offers a remarkable insight into what goes on in the most famous major golf championship of them all, the British Open. He has wisely stood back and let the caddies tell their tale. Somehow he has soldiered on, occasionally escaping from the golfing menagerie to pen two successful books: How We Won the Ryder Cup and Winning the Open. His handicap is, well, himself.

Why is it, the carpers demand, that a book about two old guys from the s can come ahead of Roy Keane's sensational autobiography which is outselling any book, fact or fiction, published this year? In his defence against a still longer suspension and yet bigger fine for having brought football into disrepute, Keane confessed that not only had he not written the book but that he hadn't even read it.
Quite right that it didn't come within a library's length of reaching the shortlist.
There appears to be the suspicion that the sponsors, William Hill Bookmakers, encourage the choice of esoteric works above established best- sellers in order to provoke the controversy that creates more publicity. Utterly untrue. For the first 11 of the 14 years since the prize was established I was one of the judges under the chairmanship of John Gaustad, proprietor of the Sportspages bookshops. Throughout, the William Hill representative, Graham Sharpe, spoke not one word. HE MAY well have been dismayed by some of our choices, particularly the year Ian Ridley's beautifully ghosted book about the Arsenal footballer Tony Adams's redemption from booze and prison was pipped at the post by a volume about Japanese martial arts.

That decision saw us heaped in ridicule but Sharpe took it on the chin. Sports-book judging is a hard slog. Some submissions are too crapulously awful that they'd hardly grace a binliner, but always there are 15 to 20 that demand assiduous reading. The bloodletting on judgment day is nothing new and it may or may not interest the system's critics to know that the judges do not get paid.
They receive prepaid taxis to and from an excellent lunch or dinner, a gift of perhaps two bottles of vintage port or champagne and a free bet with William Hill, generally blown on a slow horse or beaten football team. In short, integrity prevails.
Freed from the travail of reading all these books, which arrived on the bent shoulders of literary sherpas, I now offer a selection of my own favourites, several of which have been published since the William Hill cut-off date of October 22 for adjudication for this year's prize. I would not insult their authors by suggesting that they are merely Christmas presents.
