There are few golf books available that do not take as their premise that you want technical advice on how-to improve your score. Here is a book that uses golf as its storytelling foundation but moves on to much greater dimensions. With the help of one of the most fascinating characters in literature, golf-pro Shivas Irons, you will be taken on the ride of your life as you follow a round of Golf at St. Andrews (er, I mean, Burning Bush as the real name is hidden in the book), have dinner with the most interesting characters and end up back at St. Andrews at Midnight with your Mashie and an old leather ball. Prepare yourself to think about Golf in ways that you rarely have and to be impacted so much that you will not be able to go on your next round of golf without thinking of Shivas!!! This book only rates an eight because the main plot ends about 3/4 of the way through the book and contains a few chapters taken from Shivas' notebooks at the end. These chapters, while interesting in themselves, cannot match the intensity of the story. This book is not for everyone but if you are fascinated by the Eastern philosophy, by the feeling of being "in the zone", like to read books like Ishmael by Dan Quinn and The River Why by David james Duncan you will love this book
