I read John Feinstein's account of Bruce Edwards life with a sense of both sadness and joy. Sadness in knowing that a great man has left his family, friends, and those of us who admired him way too soon. Joy in knowing ,after reading Feinstein's words, that Bruce Edwards had truly lived the life he wanted to live and had shared his love of life with countless people. "Caddy for Life" is the best writing thus far from the pen of John Feinstein. Even those who are not fans of the game of golf can learn about the game of life from this book.

On several occassions, I found myself getting choked up while reading this book. It is intensly personal and we're lucky to be provided with an up close view of what Bruce Edwards and those who loved and worked with him went threw. Experience is a hard thing to acquire, unless you actually have it. This book offers a rare exception to its reader.

In the days where professional golf seems to be so much about the money, it is refreshing to read a story about another aspect of golf that is not often told. The personal side of the relationship between a player and his caddy. Not just any player - Tom Watson. Not just any caddy - Bruce Edwards. They met by chance and Watson said they would try it for a week and see how it goes. It went for 30 years and ended only because Edwards contracted ALS. This is a charming and well told story that will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. It isn't all fairways and greens. It also involves a heart and a soul.

Just a wonderful read in many ways even if the subject takes you down some reading about a man sentenced to death at a young age. The book deceivers less on the negative though and more on the continuing to LIVE in SPITE of the illness that Bruce had. In many ways it's a message of inspiration more than anything else, to keep going and never give up. My hats off to both Bruce and Tom Watson for being the men of courage and strength they both show here and not letting this disease get them so down they give in to it. If I could be half the men of character these two showed I'd be proud of myself. Inspirational read to me.

I just got around to reading this book, I wish I would have done it sooner. This is a very interesting and inspiring story. If you are a golf fan like I am, you will love the way Bruce described being inside the ropes. Although his life was cut short, he certainly lived it to its maximum. He did it his way. You have to admire a man with such passion. The book also shows that Tom Watson is not just a champion golfer, he is a champion in life. A true gentleman. Great Book!!
