About the Little Book of Golf Law, Second edition

The Little Book of Golf Law is back again with completely new and updated stories of your favorite pastime! John H. Minan writes on how violating "the law" of golf -- as opposed to the rules that govern the game -- can have serious consequences. You don't have to be a lawyer to enjoy this book, which combines two great passions: law and golf.

In ten parts covering legal areas from torts to intellectual property to environmental law, this revised and expanded edition of the classic Little Book explores thirty-nine cases in which the rules of golf spilled over into the rules of law. Each chapter examines a different set of facts and involves an actual case. The chapters explore a wide array of legal issues, from personal injury claims for negligence to products liability, contract disputes, and more.

Each chapter identifies the subject matter and the official citation to the case in the chapter heading.

If you enjoyed the first edition, you're sure to relish every page of this expanded second edition!

It makes a great gift for the firm's golf outing as well!
Praise for the Book!

"Fundamentally, however, the rules [of golf] can be reduced to a few underlying principlesonly two, in the opinion of John Minan&The first is to play the course as you find it and the second is to play your ball without touching it until you hole outexcept, of course, when there are exceptions. The rules define and explain the exceptions. And for situations that aren't covered in the rules, there's the all-important equity clause, Rule 1.4: When in doubt, do what's fair."
The Wall Street Journal

"We can all relate. Virtually every golfer has nervously watched an awful slice sail toward a row of houses, waiting for the crash of a windowor worse, a blood-curdling scream. And Minan has done a fantastic job with this very original effort."
San Diego Union Tribune

"An interesting and very readable survey of selected case law applicable to the game of golf."
The Colorado Lawyer

"A broad collection of interesting cases...Few golfers will ever walk onto a golf course again without being reminded of the legalities of the game if they read this book."
Advocate Magazine

"A very enjoyable read on the law of golf. A wonderful example of what a scholarly lawyer can accomplish when applying the law to one of the more enjoyable pursuits of everyday life. Golfers, lawyers, and golf widows as well the non-golfer, non-lawyer who enjoys great story telling&will do well to add this book to their collection."
Bench and Bar

"[I]f you don't mind a little golf in your law or law in your golf, The Little Book of Golf Law isn't a bad way to kill some time. Just try not to think about these lawsuits next time you're on the links; it'll kill your backswing."
Arizona Attorney

"This book is an instant classic, a must have. I never had more fun learning the rules of a game than I did when I read this book. I now have a few extra stories to tell my fellow golfers while on the course."
