Just a quick note about how the book read, I am somewhat a stickler for good proofreading as I write and review many complex legal documents on pretty much a daily basis. This book would have been helped by a good proofreading and consistency check as I found a few discrepancies between some of the stories that, again, a good critical proofread should have caught. All in all a very good book and easy read about as fine a fellow as you'd be lucky to meet.
I'm adding an update to this review because I neglected to compliment Mr. Roland's extensive and painstaking research that he skillfully wove into a fine, enlightening, and engaging story with incredible detail. His keen observations of Mr. Lema's tragic last day on Earth are simply spellbinding, though depressing, as we all wish that day had ended differently with Tony alive and playing on a different golf course than the one he died on. P Great man, great personality and talent taken from us all too soon. Great book, Bill!i
