What the Critics Say

“The most important golf autobiography since that of Nicklaus’ boyhood hero, Bobby Jones. A chronicle of rare insight and depth. It manages to increase the reputation of its subject. And like him, it will last.” (Washington Times)

“Nicklaus is very calming in that unpretentious Midwestern way, and Ian Esmo's reading is controlled and blissfully unintrusive. It's like listening to the Golden Bear himself as he recounts the 20 major championships he won between 1959 and 1986.” (AudioFile)

    "Come Back Kid"
    Where does Jack Nicklaus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was pretty detailed, jumped around alittle bit.


    What other book might you compare Jack Nicklaus to and why?

    Greg Norman's


    What does Ian Esmo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think just by changing his voice for a different person.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No but the 86' Masters was the best.


    Any additional comments?

    Long but a great career does not take 10 minutes to cover.

    "How he played"

    This book is an excellent recount of Jack's golf life. He treats his emotional ups and downs, with shot evaluations, satisfaction with his technique, and the many times others helped him. It gives a good feeling for how Jack lived and prospered I found it helpful to know that he faced many of the doubts that I have.
