Gary Player’s Black Book contains 50 questions and detailed responses from 18-time major winner Gary Player. The book, divided into three parts, focuses on specific scenarios and problems that arise in golf, life, and business. In the first section on golf, topics include putting, scoring, etiquette, the mental side of the game, and fitness and nutrition. In the section on life, Player, the father of six and grandfather to 22, addresses issues such as parenting, who to turn to when in need of advice, and more. Finally, in the section on business, he details how to deal with competition, among other topics. Player responds to questions such as:

Golf: How do I play a bunker shot from a plugged lie?
Life: I feel like I’ve lost the passion for what I do. How do I get that back?
Business: When people criticize my work, I take it very personally. How do you handle criticism?

Player draws from both on- and off-the-course experiences dealing with competitors, businesspeople, and family. In doing so he offers a unique glimpse into handling adversity with regard to these relationships. The advice that he offers is invaluable to fans of all ages.

Looks like it has been sitting on the shelf in a … Cannot believe the condition this supposedly brand new book arrived in. The (aptly named?) dust jacket was covered in dust, I had to wipe it with a cloth. Both the dust jacket and the book underneath are scuffed all around. Looks like it has been sitting on the shelf in a charity shop. Very disappointing and not suitable to give as a Christmas gift.

World Class Advice Mr Player was my original golf hero and still is. This book provides sound advice for life, golf and business and being a follower over the years have tried to apply his values to aspects of my life with some success (not quite as much as Mr Player) Great read and a super book to just dip into for advice and motivation.
