    " I read this one a long time ago. It was amazing! If you love golf, or even if you just have a passing interest in golf, do yourself a favor and read this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 7/7/2010

    " A great book about golf, life, patience, appreciation and balance. It made me feel as though I had a secret. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 4/6/2010

    " Magical...especially if you like golf! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. | 1/29/2010

    " My favorite book. You need to have on open mind to enjoy it. If you're a golfer, you would be missing something very important if you didn't read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 8/28/2009

    " A phisophical journey into the essence of golf, the most sensitive game to mentality and energy. Murphy's writing is engaging and alluring, a mystical journey in the finest form. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob | 8/2/2009

    " This is one of my favorites and even if you don't play golf or know anything about the sport, there is much here to entertain any reader. If you do play golf, well, it's a pretty awesome reminder of the true beauty of the game. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 7/15/2009

    " Referred to in Shadow Culture; connected with current interest in golf and exercise; golf and the perennial philosophy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 7/6/2009

    " I once met a fellow on the Appalachian Trail (in Virginia, if you must know) who had read this book. He was the only person I'd ever known to have done so. We've been friends ever since! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Will | 6/4/2009

    " 1/3 story about a dream round of golf, 1/3 guys talking about golf...that is guys being guys (this is the best part of the book), and 1/3 philosophy. It was a little different, I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arne | 5/20/2009

    " Obviously there should be no "Golf-Literature". This is the exception. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 2/7/2009

    " Proof that you can never go back. I read this over twenty years ago, and thought it was brilliant, "it changed my life", etc. This time round, I found it trite and badly written. Ah well, I guess reading has as much to do with the reader as with the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 10/30/2008

    " An interesting tale about the mystical aspects of golf as they also pertain to everyday life. Enjoyable but in my estimation not as good as The Legend of Bagger Vance which has a similar theme. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 10/19/2008

    " 18 holes of golf as a cycle of birth and rebirth. Michael Murphy's fantastical odyssey across the links of Burning Bush Country Club under the mentorship of Seamus Irons. If you're a golfer (I'm not) or a mystic, you should read this book! "
