I can honestly say that this book has opened my eyes I doubt non golfers will get it , but we golfers can come to only one conclusion after closing this book What a despicable person we have as leader of the free world America, hang your head in shame. Well, I ve completed the book, Commander in Cheat Although not actually reading , I was fortunate enough to be able to listen to the audio version with the author, Rick Reilly himself reading aloud I thoroughly enjoyed the amusing personal experiences he s had with Trump and the anecdotes collected from caddies, golf professionals, other journalists and Trump staff or golf partners most of whom wanted to remain, for obvious reasons, incognito Rick and his family are steeped in a love of golf and he uses the game s protocols and etiquette and vast amounts of detail to illustrate with fascinating insights, the lack of character of the so called leader of the free world non of which will be surprising or shocking for those of us well versed in the Trumpian MO The lying, the cheating, the shameless bullying, the meanness, the BS The book is dense with detailed research which I appreciated the only error which stuck out is the same one as Trump himself made and that is the stated birthplace of his father Overall I was left with an impression that Rick was both sad and angry Certainly Trump was no sort of a gentleman but nobody was a bigger loser than Trump himself, cheating himself out of the pleasure and satisfaction of the honest achievement of a good, fair game of golf with trusted friends all pitting themselves against a course and the elements Worst of all for Rick was Trump s golf legacy That he s left, a big orange stain on the game that they may never get out Trump s elitist view of golf seen as a game only for the already successful, despite the vast majority of golfers playing on public courses, four hours of fresh air fun , costing no than 35 Trump s affect on the future success of Rick s beloved game of golf, his lies and his cheating has made, golf terrible again.Apologies to any golfers I m as yet a golf virgin. A brilliant book I m not a golfer but do understand some of its conventions The book becomes a thesaurus of grotesqueness much reads like a comic novel except nothing is funny You don t need to understand golf to be blown away by the sheer awfulness of Trump s behaviour Three non golfing friends have already read it and share the 5 star rating. Bought this book after seeing it reviewed in the Sunday papers, and thought this would be interesting to see what would be revealed about Trump s psyche Spoiler alert there is no insightful analysis what so ever It is really a repetitive catalogue of Trump s cheating when playing golf and his habit to grossly over exaggerate Nothing insightful or revealing that you couldn t have worked out from seeing him in the media.No doubt it has been factually validated, for fear of being sued, but there is no reveal.Frankly the book is a waste of money, much is common knowledge with little analysis or interpretation of the facts.
