Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was expecting/hoping for a more comprehensive accounting of Mr. Player's overall life and career. The focus was clearly on his spectacular golf history. However, his philanthropy, diplomacy, world travel experiences, diverse business career, health and fitness contributions etc. all could have been reported in much more detail. The book is rather short, I would have welcomed a much longer book with a more ambitious writing effort on this remarkable person.
