"The most important golf autobiography since that of Nicklaus's boyhood hero, Bobby Jones. A chronicle of rare insight and depth. It manages to increase the reputation of its subject. And like him, it will last."-- Jay Nordlinger, The Washington Times
"A must read for golfers of all ages. A wonderful book with insights into the great man's life and thoughts. Everyone who enjoys the game should get a copy, curl up in a comfortable chair and lose yourself in his wonderland." -- Stan Hunt, The Pilot
From the Back Cover
Jack Nicklaus: My Story is Jack Nicklaus's complete and compelling inside, in-depth account of those legendary majors triumphs, along with many other competition highlights - and some lowlights, too - of one of the greatest sports careers of all time. But, because this fascinating man has always been so much more than a professional athlete, his long-awaited autobiography is vastly more than a book about winning and losing. Revealed with the unfailing candor and intensity that are his most distinctive personality traits, here are all of the Jack Nicklauses his legions of admirers, and even some of those close to him, have never known the son, whose eyes still well up at the mention of his father; the husband, deeply aware of how much the strength, resilience, charm, and love of a woman content to remain in the shadows have meant to both his public image and private happiness; the famous father who, every day of his life, really has put his children first; the artist, tirelessly creating highly acclaimed courses so that others can enjoy his beloved game; the businessman, staggeringly successful at times, staggeringly unsuccessful at others; the analyst of the methods and makeups of the golfers who pushed him hardest and, most candidly of his own strengths and weaknesses; the commentator offering deep insights and strong opinions on the whys and wherefores of an occupation that has been extremely rewarding for him, yet one that he still regards as purely a game; and the multimillionaire, jet-plane-owning, world-traveling celebrity who is happiest hanging around home in a pair of shorts, then taking the kids to a family restaurant for dinner.See all Product description

Worth a read for any golf fan.
Based on my standard criteria:
1) has the auto-biographer led an interesting life. Tick. best ever golfer on the planet
2) is there sufficient back or early story. Very much so
3) do you feel you learn something of the star's motivations? Definitely
4) do you think that Jack wrote the bulk of it himself - certainly
5) other - and here the number of tips that Jack describes - ones that he has used at majors, and ones that we can all use in our Sunday 3 ball - are top top notch.
My putting has come down by 5-6 per round alone.
The book was in pristine condition and arrived promptly and represented excellent value for money.
