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.

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 purchased this book as it was recommended by many golf pals who said it was a great insight into the world of Tiger Woods.

After listening to the book I have to say it offers much more than just an insight into the circus around Tiger. Haney provides an introduction to top level coaching, how he got where he got to and what kept him motivated throughout his career.

Haney does a good job narrating his story. I think maybe listening to it rather than reading it leaves me with a different impression of the twos (Haney & Woods) relationship than my pals who read the book.

Definitely worth a listen.
