Book Overview

A Golf Match You'll Never Forget Lying on An operating table, about to undergo emergency heart surgery, Elliott Goodman hears the voice of God--as in The Almighty--speaking to him. God, it seems, has a last-second wager for Elliott, challenging him to an eighteen-hole golf match. If Elliott wins, he'll be saved. If he loses. . . God sends down eighteen legendary opponents to play against Elliott and to hopefully teach him a few tricks along the way...

Excellent Review

I have never ordered from this site before and I was very pleased with the book. It was in excellent condition, although they said it was used. It was fresh looking and I was very pleased. Delivery was slow, but then I rather expected that and I did not request any special delivery. I would order from this site again. Jane Weis

A Great Message and a Great Read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially since I am both an ardent golfer and a former heart surgery patient. The book's message that in both golf and life ..."it is all about heart" is so true. And "Match Made in Heaven" presents that message in a brilliantly written, quirky, humorous fashion that should be a must read for every golfer and everyone who has ever had something life threatening in their lives, and anyone else who values life's "mulligans".

Match Made in Heaven

This book is absolutely brilliant. It is delightfully poignant as well as hilariously funny. I truly wish I could apply all the principles learned by Elliot in his 18-hole round of golf to my own life on a daily basis! I recommend this book highly!

The Game's the Thing

Match Made In Heaven's improbable premise, a life or death golf game orchestrated by God, is matched only by it's surprisingly clever conclusion. The story contains as many intricate twists and turns as the best designed golf course. This is a book about golf for the golfer and non-golfer alike, with as much to say about life as golf, perhaps more. The philosophy and character of its all-star cast, ranging from Leonardo DaVinci to Babe Ruth, Beethoven to John Lennon, Picasso to Marilyn Monroe, is impeccably captured by an author who is as insightful as he is creative. Sprinkled with a generous dose of light humor, MMIH is a must-read page-turner unlike any other. It should be this year's runaway best-seller. Five stars.

A unique and ingenius story

Once my wife and I started to read this book, we couldn't put it down. A totally unique story line that features wit and laughter balanced by moments of wisdom, insight and poignancy. In a disarming way, this book teaches us once again that in the game of life (like golf) fulfillment is found not in winning or losing, but in the character of one's struggle in playing the game.
