Summary

Ian Poulter is one of golf's most charismatic figures, with an appeal extending way beyond his sport. Here he tells his inspirational story, from his early rejection as an Spurs youth player, right through to his match-winning contributions to successive European Ryder Cup Triumphs.

Poulter went from an Assistant Professional staffing the club shop to a global superstar, turning pro when he still had a handicap of 4 but the drive and self-belief to make it to the top. His infectious optimism, will power and flair have ensured he remains one of the biggest names on the tour.

As well as insights into the crucial moments in his career, and the life of a professional golfer, he talks about his passions outside the game, including his own riotous brand of clothing. Just as Poulter's appearance on the scene came as a refreshing antidote to a sport that was staid and stuffy, so his own book is as forthright and passionate as Poults himself.

Disappointed

The delivery was boring and the accents that were chucked in for certain persons were unnecessary and distracting. I was expecting a interesting view of how Poulter became a world class golfer through an alternative route instead it was a self agrandising story of 'I was a market trader but now look at all the things I've bought'.
Disappointing overall.

By far the best book I've ever read

I loved this book a really good insight into his life and it shows how unconventional his life was compared to other golfers

Emotional at times

Well worth the time to listen. An account of the Ryder cups from one of our truest players of it.

I was expecting more

I’m a great admirer of Ian Poulter for what he has achieved from such humble beginnings. I’m as competitive as they come and that’s why I like him so much. He provides a voice for the underdog and those deprived of natural flair and ability. So I couldn’t wait to get into the audio version.
So how do I feel now?
Well I’m a tad disappointed. Why? Well I really couldn’t get on with the narration. Sorry Paul Mendes but it didn’t work for me. You made IJP sound overly aggressive and not a nice person to be around, which I’m sure he’s not.
I think the script had a lot to do with it. In some areas it was very repetitive and very badly edited. It lacked a lot of flow and on more than one occasion I started to get agitated.
Such a wonderful story yet told in many places as if Ian had a massive chip and hated everyone in his circle. I really wish Ian had voiced his book. The story deserves to come from him personally because it is so unique.
I will continue to follow his career with the same interest I’ve always had. In many ways IJP is a national hero for what he has achieved in golf, and particularly in the Ryder Cup. Such a pity that this book is not what I hoped for.

Enjoyable listen

I am a golf fan and really liked the story. The accents that get randomly thrown in when Ian is talking to other people are not needed and abit daft but don’t take away from the enjoyment. Definitely one for any golf fan.

Poorly read

Poorly read and too much about himself and not enough about a genuine life story, interaction with other golfers or stories about the tour or golf generally.

A great story as Ian didn't take the normal route

I was a great listen as Ian didn't take the normal route to become a professional golfer, was from a family with Money but pure dedication and flight to succeed allowed him to achieve his golfing goals. I have a son who is a junior golfers and I know he does too so I might even get to meet him one day.
