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.

It was interesting, funny and sad all at the same time. It sounds like a true story teller telling his number one story...

I realy enjoyed it, I look forward to listening to some of his other books.

It's not a bad listen (apart from irritating referencing and acknowledgements after each chapter). It has a bit of an Australian bias which can be a bit frustrating when they hardly compare to some of the other greats around the world but I appreciate it was probably produced for the Australian market.

It is a little bit out of date but that shouldn't stop you buying it, it has been a worthwhile listen so if you (like me) enjoy business anecdotes then go for it, but if you are really looking for this to have a significant impact on your life....don't count on it.
