Toledo is the Horatio Alger of Golf
This is a wonderful story written in a superb style. Although nonfiction, D'Antonio writes a story that is equal to any author's fantasy. A great book for anyone who loves golf and the underdogs of this most grueling of sports.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What a truly inssperational story about a boxer turned pro. Not only does the reader follow a young Esteban through the early years of poverty and struggles, but the obstacles one faces at the infamous 'Q' school. Every since reading this book, I have follwed Esteban's weekly tour stops and rooted for him consistently. This year he has amassed more than enough winnings to earn a card for the 2001 season. There was a second place finish earlier this summer at the BC Open. I was fortunate to meet Esteban at the Air Canada Championship were he finished at 9 under par. What a true gentleman. When someone congradulated him about the finish, he said 'I owe so much to my wife Colleen'. This is a wonderful book for the golfer and non golfer.Was this review helpful?

You will come away from this book with not only an inside look at the good and the bad about the PGA Tour but you will have a new hero to root for in Esteban Toledo. The book is well written staying with it's subject while giving the insights that keep you interested. You can't help hoping that things work out for both the golfer profiled and his caddy,Robert. The author's use of 'both sides' of the struggle(the golfer's and the caddy's) really takes you to the inside. The book is not just a golf book but a story of will, determination, pride, dedication and perserverence.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
