    The Big Miss is Hank Haney's candid and surprisingly insightful account of his tumultuous six-year journey with Tiger Woods, during which the supremely gifted golfer collected six major championships and rewrote golf history. Hank was one of the very few people allowed behind the curtain. He was with Tiger 110 days a year, spoke to him over 200 days a year, and stayed at his home up to 30 days a year, observing him in nearly every circumstance....

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Big Miss to be better than the print version?

    Unless you have lived in a dark cave for the last 20 years, you have heard about Tiger. I have always wondered: Why is he so good? Why is he so much better than everyone else? Why is he so muscular (for a golfer)? Why did he have all those affairs? Why does he seem so odd?

    This book provides potential answers to all those questions. This is a book about personality, not golf, so you don???t need to be an avid golfer to enjoy this book. It???s fast paced. It addresses other golfers which is interesting. If you have ever wondered about Tiger, this book is for you! I highly recommend it!

    C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

    This book won't win any Pulitzers, but it sure is entertaining! Good story set in the Rockies. This is a first in a series. If the rest of them are this good, I will be listening to all of them.

  • American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Story

    After reading the excellent book on SEALS, "No Easy Day", “American Sniper” was a real disappointment. The story starts & stops, jumps around. The guy comes off as an arrogant jerk.

    Did the Navy SEAL Instructors really physically beat up the trainees? I doubt it. I know the physical & mental demands are beyond imagination but to be physically attacked by instructors to the point of physical injury?

    Do the SEALS really get in Bar fights all the time in San Diego? As said in the book "Seals get in lots of Bar fights and get arrested a lot. Seals don't start fights but we finish them". Really? I lived in San Diego and never heard of one such incident much less frequent incidents.

    A small group of SEALS managed to stop all gang activity on a Aircraft carrier? The book says the SEAL team just showed up in the weight room and solved the problem (without explanation). Really?

    I could not take it anymore, when he said he was off to Iraq and there were protestors calling the military personnel; "Baby Killers". Really? I know that occurred during Vietnam. Again, I lived & worked in San Diego during the start of both Iraq wars and never heard of one such report. While there was a lot of protest to Bush starting a war to find WMD "Weapons of Mass Destruction", I never heard any criticism directed at the troops - Never.

    Skip this book and read "No Easy Day". Far Better.

    Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In a championship game, to the surprise and dismay of everyone, Rick actually got into the game and then provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughingstock and, of course, was immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams. But against enormous odds, Arnie finally locates another team that will have him: the mighty Panthers of Parma, Italy.

    David says: "Great Story, but..."
    "A Pleasant Listen"
    Overall

    I enjoy football and traveling to Italy so this book was perfect for me. The book is not going to win any awards. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it entertaining. I recommend it.

    Nine-time NBA Champion coach Phil Jackson knows all about being in the spotlight, about high-profile, high-pressure seasons coaching gigantic personalities through adversity and controversy in the middle of a media hothouse in which every move is another headline, another installment in the soap opera. But nothing had quite prepared him for the only-in-Hollywood high-wire act of the Lakers' 2003-2004 season.

    A User says: "If you are interested in the NBA"
    "If you are Laker fan, this is a must read!"
    Overall

    Insightful book on the infamous 2003-2004 Lakers team. The Dream team that lost their way. Fascinating!

    Unlike his other books, this one is very boring and hard to hear. The narrator speaks is a whisper making listening painful. I listened to the first 1/3 of the book before giving up. A much better book by Paul Theroux is ?The Pillars of Hercules?.

    Compilation of short stories. Very Entertaining
