'Four days a year, golfers go out to play for Forever. Those are the four Sundays at the major championships. They all know what is at stake. They all know that winning will change their lives, and in some cases define their lives. They also know that losing can do those things too.'Each of the four major gold tournaments - the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA - has its own personality, level of competition, and drama. Here, John Feinstein follows such top stars as Mark O'Meara, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples, and David Duval - together with lesser-known contenders - through the four tournaments. Readers are treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how big-name players orchestrate their seasons to be at peak form for these intense events. At the same time, Feinstein gives us the history and lore of the tournaments, showing how they became and remain the Majors.

In this chilling expose, MOBSTER probes the real world of the Mafia: Its unique lifestyle, its rigid but unwritten code of behaviour, the world of Mafia wives and mistresses, how 'organised' crime is organised - and the curious relationship between Mafiosi and the FBI agents out to destroy them. MOBSTER also examines the dramatic courtroom battles that have marked Gotti's criminal career, culminating with his fall in 1992 when he received six consecutive life sentences with no chance of parole. Drawing on wiretap records and sources on both sides of the law, MOBSTER is the fullest portrait we are ever likely to encounter of John Gotti and his gang.
