Synopsis

An allegory about the search for the inner self is set on a Georgia golf course in 1931, where a caddie uses his mysterious powers to affect the game and the fate of the players.

Der Verlag über das Buch

A gem of a book that golfers will read for decades to come
Next year will mark my 50th year in book publishing. There have been only a few times when a manuscript arrived on my desk which seemed compellingly unique and truly magic. THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE by Steven Pressfield was one of those rare occasions. There was something about this story that whispered to me it had a chance to become a little classic. Now that the book has been published I am happy to say that is just what's happening. I've never had so many unsolicited passionately enthusiastic comments for a book. I believe the reason is that this singular story teaches that in life as well as in golf the real contest is within oneself. Please read it yourself and you'll see what I mean.

Format: Taschenbuch
It's either funny or sad that none of the reviews I've read about this book, either in print or on Amazon, recognize the source of this story: the Indian epic, the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata is one of the greatest stories ever told - and the Bhagavad Gita is given smack dab in the middle of it.
"The Legend of Bagger Vance" is a retelling of this epic, and a summary of the Bhagavad Gita, in a wonderful golf story. In the Mahabharata, Arjuna must fight a war against his step-brothers and cousins over possession of the kingdom. It is a righteous war, for he and his brothers are the heirs. But he refuses to fight, saying that war is futile and that it would be better to die than to fight one's family. So his charioteer, Lord Krishna, an incarnation of God, has to park the chariot and give him a really long lecture about why he should put aside his doubts, do his duty, and fight. Of course, it takes him the whole Bhagavad Gita to explain why this is a good thing to do, and it involves helping Arjuna understand who he really is, who God is, and what the nature of reality is. Along the way, he explains how to find peace in the midst of action, and to discover our true nature.
The Bhagavad Gita explains how to find union with God in the midst of daily life, and "The Legend of Bagger Vance" gives a very readable restatement of how to live a truly authentic life (and play great "golf" - whatever your form of "golf" is).
In "Legend," our hero, Rannulph Junah (R.Junah for those who like things spelled out) is a world-weary war veteran who is asked to play a game of golf with Walter Hagen and Bobby Jones.

I picked up a few golf books this Winter to get me into the spirit and look forward to the upcoming season. One of the books I picked up was recommended to me by a friend, "The Legend of Bagger Vance". I enjoyed this book as a reader and as a golfer.
The basic premise: can a golfer return to the game after a long absence, guided by a mystical caddie, to compete with a couple of the world's best competitors? As a golfer, I say no. When I haven't been playing for a while, it takes a lot more than my mental approach to get my game back on track.
This story takes you on a mystical journey on e legendary golf course on a foggy, windy island of the coast of Savannah. I always enjoy stories that take me to a different time using some actual characters of the day. The setting is one of the strong points of the book. This author does an excellent job describing the golf world in the early 1930s.
The real strength of the book is the mysterious Bagger Vance who encourages the lead character to transcend the physical world to overcome his golfing challenges. We all know how much golf is a mental game. This book takes it a step further. Forget about keeping your left arm straight, your head down, and your wrists firm, this book will remind you that there are "other" elements at play in the game of golf.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Bob Foofoo am 22. März 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
My father, an avid golfer, recommended "The legend of Bagger Vance" to me. As I picked it up and began to read, I expected nothing more than a simple innocent story about the underdog holding steady with the favorites in the golf match of a lifetime.
Three and a half hours later, I set the book down, sweat pouring down my face, hands numbly releasing the pages. "The Legend of Bagger Vance" is the most daring book I have ever read. In it, the entire face of reality is questioned, and cataclysmic issues are reopened over what appears to be a simple game of golf.
The plot is unimportant. What matters is the tone of the book. And believe me, it has tone.

Von Ein Kunde am 25. Februar 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
If "Golf in the Kingdom" did not exist, this would be merely a mildly entertaining read in the vein of the "Celestine Prophecy" -- harmless metaphysical pablum for the Ramtha crowd. Because "Golf in the Kingdom" does exist, however, this is such a blatant ripoff that I find it offensive. Literally every thought in this book -- and, indeed, some of the very language -- has been lifted from "Golf in the Kingdom." I am by no means a "Golf in the Kingdom" groupie, but at least it does what it does with a great deal more style and depth than this. The first half, before we launch into the Bagger Vance is God theme, is fairly entertaining and fast-paced. After that, adios. Spend your money on "Golf in the Kingdom" and "Bobby Jones on Golf" and you will have everything this book is trying to say, but said with a great deal more style, depth and authenticity. Rarely have I seen a more blatant ripoff of someone else's ideas. Some of the anachronistic details are also a bit off-putting to someone who really knows the game.

This book reminds me of my own golf swing: it starts out promising, straight and true. But as it progresses, it takes a wicked slice and ends up somewhere in the woods, leaving disappointment in its wake. It is the story of an evening's encounter between a wise and experienced doctor/golfer and his young protege. The protege is considering abandoning both his medical career and his attempt to improve his very impressive golf game. The older man, hoping to intervene, begins with a story about a remarkable golf match long ago ... . The tale of the golf match is riveting and fascinating. I won't spoil it for you. But at the end of the match, the writer takes his reader on a detour of mystical proportions, applying golf to life in an impossible way that stretches credulity. This part of the story brings forth the mental image of a punctured balata: under pressure, it doesn't hold up.
