Yes, Great book on golf and people.
Hank had to ask for a popsicle.
Over indulged, narcissist, star athletes often fall under the weight of there aggrandizement!
Great book, Hank Haney is a class guy who gives an accurate account of what it was like to train one of the greatest athletes of our time.
I would in a year or so but not tomorrow, hopefully the time away will let me pick up on something I missed the first time.
Don't have a comparison at this time due to the fact that I'm new to Audio books.
I would say it was Hank himself, it was a pleasure to hear the book read from him, it was like he was telling just to me.
I don't have the time for that but if I could I just might. I listened in my car going to work and back.
Glad I picked it. I thought it would just be a rip on Tiger but it really was just the facts and I think Hank treated Tiger with respect, maybe more than he gave Hank.
It is obvious that Haney was trying to get a little revenge and also make some money with his kiss and tell story.
faction not fiction.
I suspect they are about equal.
I was mainly interested in Hank as a coach since I have his books. "The Big Miss" gave me great insight into his objectives and methods. The information about Tiger was interesting but not my main interest. I can now work Hank's plan for golf development much more easily.
It didn't make me laugh or cry but it sure helped my golf.
If you are a serious golfer, this book will show you how it's done, from beginner to Tiger.
Some books are hard to get through but couldn't stop listening. This Made the hours I spend practicing golf go quick.
Loved the audio done by Hank himself.
I didn't think that Hank was being cutting to Tiger and made me think more of all involved.
The ending; its about someone rejecting the money and the fame and choosing to be true to themselves.
Hank Haney is easy to listen to and credible.
I listen when driving and when I walk out the door in the morning and look forward to the drive you know it is a compelling story.
Tiger was reportedly upset about the book I think it was fair and balanced it dealt with some sensitive issues with understanding and compassion and by the end I had a much deeper insight into what makes Tiger Woods. Having said that I am on Tiger's side, I really want Tiger to rise from the ashes and return to his greatness, perhaps if he read the book with an open mind and an open heart it would help him along that journey.
It is a very good sports book. Not as good as Hogan or The Grand Slam, but much better than Jack Nicklaus' book.
It gave incredible insight into Tiger Woods and his thought process as a golfer. We also learned that his interest in the Navy Seals may have cost him a chance at some all-time records.
He is not a pro reader, but since he is the author of the book, it was like he was telling us his story. I liked that.
The story of a champion golfer and flawed person.
Although I loved the insight into Tiger, it seemed that Haney was way too concerned with his own place in history. He took great pains to justify everything he did with Tiger and to defend his record with Tiger vs. Butch Harmon's record with Tiger.
very interesting a side of Tiger that I did not know
yes I did very good
yes i would off
I thought the book is well written, very informative on both Tiger the golfer and as a person and golf in general. I also think Hank did an excellent job of narrating his book. I had two main reasons for reading the book; first for my interest in Hank Haney’s golf training methods and then to find out what all the controversy was about.
Though it’s not being advertised as a golf instructional book, I found it to be very insightful into the mental side of the game, much of which the average golfer can put to use.
As for the controversy, I found nothing in the book about Tiger, the person, to be any big secret to anyone that follows golf. Hank states numerous times in the book how much he respects Tiger’s golf abilities and thanks him many times for the opportunity to coach him. I thought the book was written from a coach’s perspective, with appropriate observations on Tiger reactions on what Hank was trying to teach him, nothing more, nothing less. I think it’s a great book about golf, period.
