    This was a very interesting perspective on president Trump and how he plays golf I truly do believe that you can tell much about the character of a person based on the way they interact when competing in any type of endeavor If the allegations in this book are true some or all then I think it brings up fundamental questions that should be reflected on by voters before 2020.

    I really enjoyed the project of this book rather than dive into the maddening hand wave ium that typical critiques of Trump s character devolve into e.g who cares if he s a philanderer, don t all politicians do that, all rich people lie about how much money they have, he s just using colorful language about immigrants, can t you take a joke, etc etc , Reilly picks an area that is not as emotionally

    From someone with barely any understanding of golf, this was an interesting angle to analyze Trump s unethical, narcissistic, and selfish character through the sport The details probably won t surprise anyone but still enough to consider what a ridiculous person he can be, well before becoming President This was a fun, easy read to also learn about how the golf world and culture works, which is why Trump s very being is a middle fin

    Trump Revealed Through Another PrismPoor Rick Reilly This is an exceptionally entertaining and well written book, with loads of fascinating tidbits about golf, golfing presidents, and everything that surrounds the game at the presidential level There is, literally, an engaging fact, perceptive observation, joke, amusing story, or wry throwaway line on every page But, it s unavoidable, given the premise here, that everything circles back to
