    Description

    Rick Reilly has been a senior sports writer for Sports Illustrated for the past 17 years, and has been named "Sports Writer of The Year" seven times. Now, he pokes his nose into the world of golf. How does he do it? By caddying ("looping") for top players, celebrities, and some really bad run-of-the-mill golfers, Reilly gains insight into the minds of golfers, their winning or less-than-winning ways, and what they actually mutter when they're in the middle of play. Even though Reilly doesn't know a thing about actual caddying, Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Tom Lehmann, Deepak Chopra, Donald Trump, Casey Martin, and a blind golfer let him fumble through the motions at their sides. The result is a hilarious book of wisdom and humor.

    Commentaires

    "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)

    Absolutely Friggin' Hilarious!!!

    Rick Reilly does an awesome job of telling stories not just about himself, but the players (and their caddies) he works for. He pays respect when it is merited (w/ Jack Nicklaus, Tom Lehman, and the blind golfer), has fun when he is supposed to (w/ John Daly), and pokes fun when it is deserved (w/ Tommy Aaron, LPGA golfer). Rick does an admirable job with Casey Martin too, doing a little investigative journalism, and showing both sides of the ADA golf cart law suit. He has a wit that makes this golf book interesting and entertaining. I was laughing out loud! I'm going looking for more Rick Reilly material next chance I get.

    Hilarious

    One of the funniest things I've listened to all year. (2005) Listening to the Trump chapter alone is worth the price of entry. He's a witty and intelligent writer and very well read. Put a smile on your face and listen to this book.

    Most entertaining golf book ever!

    If there is one golf book you have to listen to, this is it! Recently on a trip from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which is a 7 hours round trip by car, this book kept me company and made a normally boring trip into a relax and entertaining one. I especially love the chapter with Deepak Chopra, that alone is worth the price of the book. 5 STARS!!!

    Loved It!

    I'm an avid golfer and found both the description of the players I knew and the insight into them personally both entertaining and often throught provoking. I laughed a lot and learned a lot. This book gave me a new appreciation of this wonderful yet frustrating game. Well worth the time and money.

    Entertaining for all

    A very humorous look at the world of an otherwise boring sport. He puts a personality to the guys strolling down the fairway without making it sound like I am listening to a round of golf on the radio. Well-written and entertaining for even the casual sports fan. The reading is excellent. The narrator has a great voice and great inflection. A pleasant break from the usual novel I regularly purchase.

    Enjoyed It

    Riley hangs out with a lot golfers you "care" about. He has some funny stories. The time went fast with the book. I wish there was more.

    Who's Youre Caddy

    This is the most humorous book I have listened to in years. I have listened to it at least 5 times. The narator is perfect for this recording. Even if you don't understand or like golf you will find this book entertaining!

    A must read / listen for every golfer

    Great book presented by a great reader! A good laugh every minute paired with findings about the psychology of golf and hence oneself here and there. A clear recommendation!
