Listening to Jack Nicklaus's memoirs gave me the sensation that I was on a golf vacation and playing well beyond my ability. Nicklaus is very calming in that unpretentious Midwestern way, and Ian Esmo's reading is controlled and blissfully unintrusive. It's like listening to the Golden Bear himself as he recounts the 20 major championships he won between 1959 and 1986. The book touches on Nicklaus's business life, his family life, and the great friendships he made along the way, but mostly we move along at a steady clip from tee to green.
