"Not What I Expected"
The story and the narration was slow and boring, the opposite of Arnie's golf game.
This will sound strange considering Arnie's reputation, but I strongly disliked the book due to it's subtle, but excessive bragging. The book is filled with phrases in which Arnie highlights his great treatment of people all while talking about how humble he is. He also is quite preachy, such as saying all Americans should be required to do a stint in the military. He also goes on about how men shouldn't have facial hair or wear hats in public. I realize that was the code in the 50s, but times have changed. I read nearly every golf book, but this one rubbed me the wrong way, repeatedly. It was very unlike most other golf autobiographies.
