I don't know if there is a better sportswriter alive than Rick Reilly. I don't even watch or play golf that much, if ever, and this book made me want to play 18 holes immediately. In this book Reilly caddies for 12 golfers including Tommy Aaron, who kind of comes off as an asshole; Jack Nicklaus, Casey Martin, Donald Trump, Bob Newhart, and a golfer that is blind just to name a few. Reilly's stories make you laugh hysterically and they contain some of the best sentences you'll ever read in sportswriting such as "The pace (of the golf game) was longer than the last day of school." While Reilly makes you laugh, he'll also make you cry. If you have dry eyes during the last story he writes on the blind golfer, than you might not be human. Good stuff, I recommend this book to anyone who likes Reilly, a sense of humor, good sportswriting, or golf.
