The surprise hit of the year, Allison Pearson's debut novel is garnering critical and fan raves. Publishers Weekly calls I Don't Know How She Does It "delightfully fast moving...with dozens of laugh-aloud moments and many tenderly touching ones," and Booklist applauds this "compelling manifesto on the plight of working mothers that manages to be both angry and funny."

The wonderful narration and fascinating main character make this one of the best audio books I've ever come across. Great!

The funniest and most popular sportswriter in America abandons his desk at Sports Illustrated to caddy for some of the world's most famous golfers, and some celebrity duffers, recounting it all in this hilarious and revealing look at the world of golf.

Good subject but an uneven product

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reilly's book includes wonderful sections about Tom Lehman, Jack Nicklaus, and David Duval, along with a boring, wake-me-when-it's-over discussion with Deepak Chopra and conversations with John Daly that would have been better left unwritten. An uneven work that strays too far from golf at times.
