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....

I really enjoyed the book and found it very hard to put down but my only issue was the narrator. the narrator is the writer and he chose to narrate and I think it was to possible damage of the book. I feel if you are going to yuse such eloquent and fluid language then you should be able to speak that way and he is unable to speak with such fluidity and it really showed as he struggled and even slurred his way through the chapters. I would have stopped listening and asked for my money back only for I enjoyed it so much.
I'll forgive him for it, if only for the fact it was a very thorough and we'll structured book and kept me enthralled till the end.
(especially because I think tiger Woods is a spoilt little baby brat and I wanted to see the inner Sancton).
well worth a read/listen 4/5
