The long-awaited autobiography of Europe's most successful golfer since the war, revealing the keys to his success and his turbulent private life.
For many years in the 1980s and 1990s, Nick Faldo was the most feared competitor in world golf. Relentless and strong-willed, he would wear down his opponents with his determination to win. It was these attributes that brought him six Major championships; Harry Vardon, a century ago, is the only European to have won more and no one has been more successful in the Ryder Cup.
But Faldo's success came at a price: his unyielding search for perfection, working with David Leadbetter, took him away from home, leading to divorces and media attention on his private life, as well as criticism for being a loner. Now he feels the time is right to talk not just about his golf, but about his whole life and how he has achieved a new calm in recent years, and to reveal the private man behind the public face.
