Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"You never realize how much stuff you’ve collected until you start going through it," writes Palmer in the introduction to this scrapbook, which chronicles his professional and personal life. Fans of the celebrated golfer, who has 61 PGA Tour victories under his belt, will be glad "Arnie" decided to ransack his attic, because they’re in for a treat. Palmer’s dog tags from his WWII Coast Guard service stand alongside photos of a young Palmer squatting on the grass of the first golf course he ever designed, a nine-holer in Cape May, N.J. In one shot, the author authoritatively chooses a club from his bag shortly after signing his first staff contract with Wilson in 1954. Flip forward a few pages, and there he is again, banging away at an iron in the Latrobe Country Club maintenance shed in 1960 ("it’s still one of my favorite pastimes"). Besides photographs and Palmer’s first-person commentary, the book includes 12 pieces of memorabilia tucked inside glassine pouches. Items like Palmer’s famous "Dial-a-Shot" tip guide and an early ad for Wilson Dyna-Powered Irons add a nostalgic touch to this heartwarming recollection of a golfing life. 100 color and b&w photos.

Format: Hardcover
Before there was Governator Arnie there was Arnie the golfer. It seems like golf has always had a shining star or two that go beyond the game to making a lasting impression on the world at large. And Arnie certainly fit that. He generated an image for a generation of people, inspiring to do better in their work, in their life. Not the world's best golfer, he's simply Arnie, the world famous guy next door. His approachability and down-home humility have secured his status as one of the most admired people in and out of sports.

This book could almost be his scrapbook. It combines stories, both personal and professional, rare photos from his private collection and removable facsimilies of twelve collectibles from his archives.

This is a fascinating book with which to curl up during the long winter months. A good Christmas present for the golfer in the family.

I went out on a limb because of the reviews and spent the money on this and decided I would accept being let down once it got here. Was I just shocked at the quality of this book and all it's glamour and extras. It was in perfect condition with all the replicas of many of the items Mr. Palmer received through the years plus his inside stories to go with it. I never saw a book with this kind of work and effort and so many pockets and pages and inside notes and reproductions of things like this for so little money. Today any frigging regular fiction book can be $30.00 and NOTHING to it at all much less the craftsmanship that went into this publication. Just a GREAT wonderful buy and I'm VERY happy with it.
If you love Palmer...you'll love this book.

This is a very delightful keepsake. Not only does it have wonderful stories by Arnold Palmer about his career, there are pouches with reproductions of interesting documents and mementos from his career and life. One of the most delightful is a little device that you can dial in almost any problem you are having on the golf course and it will tell you what is going wrong and how to fix it. As Mr. Palmer notes, it is still relevant today.

The book is full of photographs that all us Arnie fans will enjoy forever.

This is another type of book that any Arnold Palmer fan will love to read. This edition not only had my interest from Palmer's written words, but the clever inserts of about a dozen or so Palmer collectibles made it all the more intriguing. It was a book that once I picked it up could not put down. The story of his career and family life that was extremely interesting and insightful, yet entertaining. From a personal perspective I liked 'A Personal Journey' but was even more impressed with this one !
