A Word From the Author
The people I have met have made my life special. If you’re a golfer reading this, think about how many people you’ve met and made friends with because you played golf. Then take another person who doesn’t play golf. I don’t care where you are or what sport you’re in, it can’t compare, in my mind, to golf in bringing people together. Golf is a world in itself. It’s an experience that’s really worth living.
It’s been a wonderful life, I must say, and I say so with all humility and with appreciation for the people who made it so special. I hope the following pages adequately express that sentiment and that they illuminate for you some of those important things I learned along the way.
- Arnold Palmer.
Mr. Palmer and his yellow lab, Mulligan, riding around his home in Latrobe.
A publicity photo for Wilson Sporting Goods, Mr. Palmer’s first professional contract which he signed November 18, 1954.
Arnold, Winnie, Amy and Peggy at their home in Latrobe.

I recommend this only for real Palmer fans. On the golf course, Arnie always shot for the flag. At his writing desk, he laid up well short of the green.
I'd especially recommend this book for young people who are sports fans. The chapters are usually 3 to 6 pages in length and cover a stand-alone topic or anecdote. This makes for manageable chapter-a-night bedtime reading.
Palmer's death was felt personally by many including me who have a love affair with golf.
I was raised in a city near Latrobe and actually played in a couple amateur tournaments in which Arnie played (and which he won) so
I always followed his career feeling elated when he won and sorry when he lost as with the. 62
US Open. At 85 I hope I can keep playing until my final shot as like Arnie I never give up.

This was a huge disappointment. Whilst the content may be very good, oh dear, what a poor quality publication. The edges of the paper look like they've been cut with a blunt knife and the pages assembled so that they don't line up at all. I find it absolutely unbelievable that any publisher can output this trash! Especially for the price of £22.99 as well. I would expect a far better product for this price.
