    This biography also contains numerous stories of the inner circle of golfers that touched legendary Arnold Palmer’s life. In 1960 a banquet was held in Rochester, New York to name the professional athlete of the year. In contention for the prestigious award were notable sport stars Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Sam Huff, Johnny Unitas, Kyle Rote and others including Palmer. The exchange of comments between New York Yankee Roger Maris and Palmer is priceless.Palmer’s marketing trademark was an [...]

    Arnold Palmer is my all-time favorite golfer. This is a first-rate account of his life, written by a man who knew him personally. So, his insights and stories added to my knowledge of this charismatic, friendly, warm, considerate, driven man and golfer.

    The rating is probably closer to a 3.5, but I liked the person the book was about, Arnold Palmer, so much I gave it four stars. Palmer was not just a great golfer, but he seemed to be a very likeable person even more than that. In fact, the book is about Palmer more as a person, and the effect he had on others, more than his stellar golf career that included Masters' wins in 1958, 1960, 62, and 64. The book touches on the rivalry between him and Nicklaus and how he was never liked by Ben Hogan f [...]

    A highly entertaining and somewhat informative look at the life of Arnold Palmer, although you could never in a million years call it a biography. It is mostly interviews with Palmer and his friends and associates (the quotes from Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus are fascinating). If you want to understand his career in a linear fashion, with events and people well-explained, and a bit of journalistic skepticism confronting some of what is claimed, look elsewhere. But if you want a laudatory romp t [...]

    I received this book as part of a giveaway.A wonderfully written biography of one of the greatest golfers in history, and certainly the greatest of my generation, Arnold Palmer. I was a teen-ager and young adult during Palmer's heyday, and while I was not a golfer, nor a true golf enthusiast, it was impossible to be alive then and not know who Arnold Palmer was.He may not have won more tournaments than anyone else, nor earned more money but Arnold Palmer was a true sportsman and well deserves h [...]

    Filled with interesting stories about the world's most beloved golfer. As gracious and honest a man as you could ever meet (I did on 2 occasions). Typical Arnie, his nephew calls him and asks where he's at. Arnold replies, "I'm here at the White House with the President." His nephew asks, "Then why did you answer the phone?" Arnie's response."because I wanted to talk to you." As humble and genuine as you can get. Great book.

    Loved this book. I have a significant appreciation for Arnold Palmer after reading this book. What an amazing man and what a great life he lived. Would have loved to have met him. The book is mostly quotes rather an authors opinion which I really appreciate from a biography.Great read and quite inspirational as well.

    I thought Arnie: The Life of Arnold Palmer did a great job telling the best stories from Arnold's life. Like when he came back and won The Open Championship in 1960. The book also explains how much he changed the game of golf and how the game wouldn't be the same today without him.

    a great book about an amazing man I had the joy of meeting when I was 12 years old - something you never forget.

    It's Arnie. You know all this stuff, but it's good anyway.

    Reading Tom Callahan's biography of Arnold Palmer is like sitting down and talking to Arnie himself.

    Drew Stiling
    A must-read for a golf fan.

    Richard Lowery
    Has a lot of nice information about Arnold Palmer, but it jumps around a lot making it tough to figure out who/what they are referring to at times.

    Although nine holes of golf per year is enough for me, Arnold Palmer has always been an iconic figure so I chose “Arnie” to read and review. Although providing some information on Arnie’s family background and life, this is more a collection of anecdotes and observations relayed by people whose passed have crossed Palmer’s over his golfing career than a true biography. Twenty-three chapters devoted to specific milestone years in his life form the bulk of this work.The most interesting pa [...]

    The writing style was a little disjointed the first half, but smoothed out by the end. The book includes many lovely tributes to Mr. Palmer and an extensive appendix.

    Matthew Stetz
    One of the better golf biographies I've read in a damn long while.
