Inspiring! Even though this book simply narrates the life of Tommy McAuliffe, it was such a motivational book. Our limits are within ourselves. What we think, how we view ourselves, and the effect of what other people say about us determine our future and lives. This book is evidence enough that your life is yours. That outside noise should not guide how you live your life. The book is a coming to age narrative. We follow the life of Mr. McAuliffe from the time he was a boy till his adult life. Thinking about what transpired and the events after the tragedy, this is the most remarkable person I have read about. The author did justice to this book. His descriptions were vivid, easy to follow through, and created an imagination in the reader's mind. The characters were well described, and the events were well connected. There are a lot of explanations as to why things are the way they are. This made it very fast-paced. The writing is immaculate and simple, easy for everyone to get through. The only thing I did not like about the book was how short it was. Otherwise, this book will make you love golfing and believe in yourself. Read more
