"Hilarious misadventures, catty gossip, and downright embarrassing facts are only part of the appeal of this deftly written journal by Sports Illustrated writer Reilly....A truly funny, don't-miss read." (Publishers Weekly)
If you like golf, then you'll like this book. Very entertaining stories about the players. One thing that annoyed me, though, was the lack of editing of the recording. The narrator kept calling the Titleist Pro-V1 the Pro-Six, for the Roman number 6, VI. He obviously doesn't golf and no one reviewed the recording. You may say that it's petty to say that but it annoyed me to no end and expected more from the book. Otherwise, Rick does a good job of making fun of himself and the players.
Found this title very entertaining. It take a backstage look into the life of some of professional golfers on and off the course. Highly recommend to those of you sitting in traffic and want a little laugh every so often. You don't need to be a hardcore golfer, just knowing some of these high profile golfers makes the experience much better.
This was a great book. Rick Reilly did a great job with the narrative and the subject was fascinating - caddying for a variety of personalities and reporting about the lessons, experiences, conversations, comaraderie. I love golf and this was just a pleasure to listen to in the morning and afternoon drives between work and home. I highly recommend this for golf fanatics.
A really worthwhile way to spend 7 hours and 34 mins ! It is more than just golf it is about personalities and their passions told enthusiastically through the mind of a great sport journalist
