Publisher's Summary

The time: 1931. The place: the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windswept Atlantic shore. The event: a once-in-a-lifetime 36-hole match... in which the stakes are higher than anyone imagined.

In Steven Pressfield's richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Played above raging Atlantic surf and under gathering storm clouds, their match is thrilling competition. But the key to the outcome lies with Bagger Vance, a caddie who carries the secret of the Authentic Swing. His mysterious powers guide the play and leave a lasting imprint on the lives he touches that day and in years to come.

A sports fable worthy of comparison to The Natural, The Legend of Bagger Vance reveals that, in life as well as golf, the real battle is not with outside opponents but with oneself.

Any additional comments?

It is book about golf and I was putting this novel off because it seemed like something I wouldn't care about. I have listened to all of Steve's audiobooks, absolutely love them, and this one might be my favorite! It is a book that can be mined for knowledge and truths. It is so well written and narrated. It is so much different and better than what I expected. I can't believe how it blew my expectations away!

I am not a reader so my sister bought me this eBook. I will definitely be looking for other books by this author or read by this narrator.

Fabulous! I love this version of The Bhagavad Gita both as a yoga and Ayurveda practitioner and as a golfer!

Outstanding!

It was 100 times better than the movie. I had no idea what the story was really about until listening to this book. Absolutely loved it and will be listening to it again. Highly recommend it if you love golf and if you believe in a higher being.

More than a story about a golfer and his caddie

A book full of great life lessons. I was truly surprised how fantastic this would be and the impact it would have on me. I loved it!!!
