Overview

“Reilly’s is so good, it almost is painful for sportswriters like me to read him.” — The Sherman Report
 
Rick Reilly is a sports writer like no other. A former ESPN columnist and eleven-time National Sportswriter of the Year, Reilly can make readers laugh, cry, and sometimes want to throw him across the room. He has no compunction telling readers what he thinks about today’s most popular sports figures, including Tiger Woods. But for every brazen takedown, Reilly will tell a heartwarming story about the power of sports to heal the wounded and lift the downtrodden.

With Reilly’s new introduction and updates on his most talked-about columns, as well as his thoughts on athlete tattoos, NFL cheerleaders, and running with the bulls in Pamplona, Tiger, Meet My Sister… showcases an unparalleled sportswriter at the very top of his game.

Praise

Praise for Rick Reilly

“Rick Reilly is one of the funniest humans on the planet, an indescribable amalgam of Dave Barry, Jim Murray, and Lewis Grizzard, with the timing of Jay Leno and the wit of Johnny Carson.”—Publisher’s Weekly  
 
“Don’t get started reading this book.  It will take three burly men to pull you away from it.”—Bob Costas, NBC commentator for Missing Links

“You don’t need to know your bogeys from your birdies to find at least three laughs per page in this novel.”—The New York Times Book Review for Missing Links

“Snappy prose, believable characters, and the funniest take on blue-collar hacking and gambling since Dan Jenkins’s The Glory Game at Goat Hill…it’s social satire and pure irreverence that keep this story in the groove.”—Los Angeles Times for Missing Links

 “Reilly could write about lawn bowling and make it funny, informative, and entertaining. You never know what the next page is going to bring.” —Los Angeles Times for Who’s Your Caddy?

“You might not think the story of a man carrying Tommy Aaron’s golf bag for 18 holes could make you laugh out loud, but you’d be wrong. Who’s Your Caddy? is funny enough to coax a chuckle out of Vijay Singh. A great way to read about the game—and its people, too.” —Charlotte Observer

“You don’t have to know much about golf to get a kick out of this book. Reilly learns a little about golf, and a lot about people.” —The Buffalo News for Who’s Your Caddy?
 
“[Reilly] knows and delivers a good story when he sees it . . . readers can’t help but be touched by the sheer ingenuity of many of these games and the sheer courage of many of the participants.”—Booklist for Sports from Hell
 
“Reilly was the closest thing sportswriting ever had to a rock star.” –Chris Chase, USAToday.com

“Often, Reilly’s is so good, it almost is painful for sportswriters like me to read him.” –Ed Sherman, The Sherman Report

“Reilly made you think, made you cry, made you LOL, made you get to know a subject, made you love sports and hate sports and love him and hate him. Above all, he made you read him, every column.” –Jay Marriotti, SportsTalk Florida
