Publisher's Summary

The Masters is unquestionably the crown jewel of golf's major tournaments, not only for the transcendent performances it has inspired over the years, but for the incomparable sights and sounds of Augusta National and its environs, each distinct element contributing to the storied, rarefied atmosphere which draws tens of thousands to Georgia each spring.

Seven Days in Augusta is a celebration of what makes the Masters singular and iconic, from the par-3 contest to Amen Corner to Butler Cabin. Mark Cannizzaro goes behind the scenes of the exclusive competition, covering wide-ranging topics including green jacket rituals, tales from The Crow's Nest atop the clubhouse, the extreme lengths some fans have gone to acquire tickets, and what goes on outside the gates during Masters week. 

Also featuring some of the most memorable and dramatic moments from the tournament's history, this is an essential, expansive look at golf's favorite event.

Augusta from the inside...

Having attended the last "Michelson Master's" in 2010, with my eldest son then 15 and through the kindness of a very dear friend, the Masters and every aspect of that tournament interests me even more now than it did as a high school golf team captain in 1979. This volume fills a great purpose in bringing the average fan a few steps closer to a place in golf lore and history that they would never otherwise be able to peek into. Personable and written in a voice that is always respectful of both the game and the average fan, Cannizzaro has offered us a book of stories, remembrances and insights that can't really be found anywhere else. Good read.

Really interesting

This is a really interesting book with so much that most people like me didn’t know about the Masters. Really well read by Kyle Tait.

Disappointed

Lots of repeat and rehashed stories along with a lot of inaccuracies. Mediocre treatment of the Masters.

Easy, breezy story

Good story with short essays about different behind the scenes aspects of the Masters and Agusta National. I knew some of the stories already, and there were new ones I hadn't heard.


My only complaint is the narrator's attempt to do accents when quoting international players. The accents are poorly done and the players sound the same. He should not have tried.

If you are a golf fan, I recommend this book.

Great book

Cannizzaro does a great job of describing the majesty of Augusta. There are some great stories in here and recaps of some of the great Masters moments and players. The audio version, which I listened to while simultaneously reading the book, is not great. The narrator moves pretty slowly and his attempts at giving some of the European players accents while reading their quotes is very awkward. Overall a great book for anyone who has ever watched or been lucky enough to attend the Masters.

Repetitive and very poor narration.

This book could have been half the length. There is so much repetition, the same references and stories repeated in different chapters. There are also a few mistakes at least one players first name is incorrectly stated and at one stage during the 2019 chapter (a chapter full of repetition) he mistakenly states woods took the lead on 13 with a par. It looks like an editor was sorely missed somewhere in the process.

Those are the small issues. The elephant in the room here is the narration. The accents the narrator uses when reading player quotes are embarrassing at best. There was no need to do this. It ruined the experience completely.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend this book.

The narrator ruined it

Couldn’t make it past the first fifteen minutes. Siri could have done a better job of reading it.

Book/Story are great but....

This book presentation would’ve been so much more enjoyable had the narrator not tried a bunch of hokey accents that didnt work. I found myself missing the story sometimes because i was dismayed by the poor quality of the attempted accent that it took away form the book.

Great Masters coverage for sure with nice insight. Well written, poorly read.
