A fun "read." Highly recommended. Golf is funny...when you are not playing.
A very funny account of the love of the game and the individuals who make it great!
Really enjoyed this audio selection, especially if you love golf. Reilly has a good eye for what interests the casual sports fan.Well worth the rental.
Haven't laughed that hard in a long time. I don't even know anything about golf; however, this made me see real people just trying to make it work with what God gave them.... "talent"~!
How disappointing. I'm a female golfer, and I also occassionally read Rick Reilly in SI. I thought I would really like this book, but I was so turned off that I only listened to 1 1/2 CDs before I returned it. I hate to sound so sexist, but this is a "guys" book, with "male" humor. I don't really think the size of John Daly's penis is really very funny or interesting. And listening to the tales of hangovers and partying just isn't very funny to me. Oh well, this one just wasn't for me, but I'm sure it will appeal to others out there.
Exceptionally funny and both well-written and read. Gave interesting insight into players and reflects the author's love of the game.
Good listen....nothing too thrilling, but fun to hear about golf from the inside.
This was funny and enjoyable but a bit too long. i would have enjoyed it more if it was shorter. Too much of the same thing.
I play golf, and watch it occassionally on TV. This book isn't about golf. This book is about life, and even if you don't dig sports books, you might still get something out of this one. Rilley is GREAT, the narrator is GREAT. Very Good listen!
Funny. I don't even follow golf closely, and I enjoyed it. The next time I do see golf televised with any of the many players included in these stories, I may take more interest in seeing them win - or perhaps hoping certain ones lose. If you DO follow the game, you'll probably like this one.
