Shortlisted for the Autobiography of the Year at the British Sports Book Awards 2015.
Now one of England’s top professional golfers, Ian Poulter can be a controversial and forthright figure and not one to “toe the company line”. His book reflects his character and is a refreshingly honest look at his life and his passion for golf. ~ Sue Baker

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 Arsenal 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. 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 often staid and stuffy, so his own book is as forthright and passionate as Poults himself.
