This is an honest account by one of the most underrated golfers in the world today. Any sports fan should be inspired by Paul's work ethic and sheer determination to reach the dizzy heights of Ryder Cup success and glory, never mind winning The Open! Despite all his achievements, he goes about his way in a very down to earth and humble manner, laced with much humour and sharp wit.A great read.

Frank and down to earth book all about his life especially as a professional golfer. Felt as if he was talking to you as a friend throughout the book. I'm now of the opinion that he is such a well rounded chappie.

I started working with Adam Hunter as my golf coach in March 1999. Four months later he would help coach Paul to his amazing Open Championship victory at Carnoustie. I remember sitting glued to the TV that Sunday afternoon, and being in tears as Paul stiffed that 4 iron in the playoff.

If you love golf, then this is a great book for you. Paul is very honest about his career, and writes in an easy to read style (thanks to John Huggan!). It's also a great insight into the sometimes difficult life of a tour pro. I couldn't put it down.

I have a feeling that there's more to come from Paul Lawrie. You get a sense of renewed purpose as you read the book. And of course, Adam's always out there with him, helping him reach even greater heights.

An incredible insight into the thoughts and life of an Open Champion and Ryder Cup star. Essential reading for all golfers. It made me watch the finishing few hours of Carnoustie Open 1999 in a new light.

A very honest account of his golfing career with behind the scenes insights. Touches on the black time in his life with humility. Aware of his need to help the next generation. Well worth the read

An excellent read. Got it from my son & daughter-in-law for my Xmas. Paul Lawrie is without doubt one of the golf world's nice guys, he's so down to earth and throughout the book you can tell how immensely proud he is of his own Foundation for the work he does with young golfers, he is an absolute credit to Golf, Aberdeen and the whole of Scotland. Absolutely loved it.

As a keen golfer (and a Scot) Paul Lawrie has always been a player I admired. Not just because he won The Open but because he came from humble beginnings, worked hard and developed a beautiful swing. He has never had the recognition he deserved particularly from the Americans. This book is an excellent read and gives a very clear insight to the man and the golfer.

I really enjoyed this book, I have always been an admirer of this man and felt I would like to know more about him. A great insight in a man who was thrown into the limelight. Well worth a read and some great lessons honestly told. Maybe some of the golf commentators should read this and understand that we are all different!

Recommended for golfers a good read about a down to earth guy who has over achieved but still feels the pain and anger of not being taken seriously. His working class fighting spirit is message to all aspiring youngsters that hard work pays off
