Well worth the time - a great read.

The Legend of Bagger Vance: A Novel of Golf & the Game of LifeThe Legend of Bagger Vance: A Novel of Golf & the Game of Life by Steven Pressfield
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A week ago I was telling my grand-nephew of the two jobs I ever did for just one day each - bus boy (which he just began doing successfully, that's what got me started) and caddy. So it was not likely I would feel motivated to read a book "about golf." However as a reader who thinks Steven Pressfield is one of our great living thinkers and writers, I was more than ready to accept that this was more than a "sports book." This book is more than mind-boggling - it is a meditation on so many things about what it means to be a man and a human. I recently read The Shack, by William P. Young, which tries to convey a similar "incarnation" to the one herein, and found it interesting but not nearly so involving. I am so grateful that I took the time to experience this powerful little book, and recommend you do the same.
