That's the question Elliott Goodman hears in the OR as he's about to have emergency surgery following a heart attack. But it isn't Elliott's surgeon who's asking. It's God. As in the Almighty. And God has a wager for Elliott. He challenges him to an eighteen-hole golf match. If Elliott wins, he is saved; if he loses...So begins this witty, insightful, and very funny novel about golf and life and the lessons learned from both.

To be fair (isn't He always?), God sends down 18 legendary opponents to play against Elliott and hopefully teach him a few tricks along the way. From Leonardo da Vinci (nice clubs) to Marilyn Monroe (nice...everything), Babe Ruth (pass the hot dogs), Abraham Lincoln (cheater!), and 14 other luminaries, including Moses, John Lennon, Joan of Arc, Picasso, W.C. Fields, Socrates, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Beethoven, Gandhi, and Shakespeare, Elliott squares off against some of the most extraordinary people who've ever lived. As shots are analyzed, balls enter bunkers, and Freud drives the cart (control freak), Elliott has a chance to examine his life and his form, to see what he can correct or improve before facing his ultimate adversary.

Bighearted and delightfully original, Bob Mitchell's Match Made in Heaven is a grand celebration of golf and a profound parable of traveling our own personal fairways in a game where no effort is wasted, and every failure is just another chance to try again. Download and start listening now!

    " I learned a bit about some famous people, but the idea of this book is just very strange. Not sure why I thought it would be interesting. I don't care much for golf. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 1/25/2014

    " I think this book had too many golf references for me to enjoy it. I quit this book early which I seldom do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 nadya permata | 1/15/2014

    " agak beribet baca buku ini, coz gak ngerti permainan golf, jadi banyak istilah yang ngebingungin, secara golf di Indonesia, belum merakyat ya.. tapi lucu aja sih alur ceritanya karena sekaligus bsa memahami tokoh-tokoh terkenal di dunia ini.. Kyak Gandhi, Lennon, Monroe.. yah baca aja buat selingan di jalan "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 edgardo | 1/12/2014

    " A fun little book about having fun for all it's worth. Playing golf against Leonardo da Vinci! W.C. Fields? Gandhi? Marilyn Monroe? Oh, mama! A little disappointing at the end, but it's just a book and it was fun to read. Bob Mitchell is pretty cool. "

    " I love this book. It's an inspiring and interesting concept delivered with intelligence and humor. My golf instructor said golf will teach you the lessons of life and a person's true character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 10/14/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tobi | 4/11/2013

    " This book was disappointing. The idea was great. I mean a man is dying and to get to live he has to win a golf game against some of the most famous people and God. It lacks enough interaction with the characters and had too much golf jargon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 genn | 11/29/2012

    " neat idea, imaginary scenes of how some well-known people would play golf if still alive, all the while teaching some life lessons. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 6/13/2012

    " Interesting, it is about a golfer, that has a golf game with god. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen | 1/31/2012

    " I liked the premise of the book playing a golf match to save your life. It was exciting to see at each hole who Elliot was playing. The golf language got a little boring but a good read. "

    " The idea is cute.. to have a match of golf with God in order to get your soul back..
    too bad it has sooooo many golf term.. maybe it's best if they make it in to a movie.. so I would understand what a birdie or par mean. xixixi "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 7/9/2008

    " This was a fun summer read about some issues of faith, life and golf. A man has a chance to get a do over in life if he can overcome some of his past heros on the links. I know it sounds corny, but a fun read, and highly recommend for those golfers out there. "
