MEDIA REVIEWS

"Arnold Palmer has lived an incredible life, and the King now wants to share some of what's he experienced and what he's learned along the way...With Palmer being one of professional golf's greatest success stories, he should have plenty to offer readers." -- Golf News Net

"Palmer s story is inextricably linked to a mentoring father: in Arnie s case, a greenskeeper and eventual club pro who first put Arnie s hands on a golf club and told him, Boy, don t you ever change that. Inevitably, this volume strikes a (hopefully premature) valedictory note, but that will make it all the more popular with the King s still-thriving army." - Booklist

"Packed with stories and a few tips . . . . A heartfelt, sincere, mini-self-portrait by a man who epitomizes class." Kirkus Reviews

"

"A warm good-bye from the great man himself. . . . We can picture Palmer in his dotage, sitting back in an easy chair, telling us short nuggets about the life he led, still feeling, as he writes, that he wants to share what he learned with people one more time." Golf Digest

"The definitive final word on Palmer's legacy from the man himself. The tome's pages capture the warm, humble confidence of its author, the qualities that made Palmer not just a great athlete but a great man and role model. . . . An invaluable insight into the mind of a champion." Newsweek

"A fast-paced reflection from the man who many consider the gold standard of conduct in his sport, with plenty of life lessons about how to remain humble and gracious while achieving superstardom." Christian Science Monitor
