Bernhard Langer talks candidly about his successes and failures, the faith that inspires him and what the future might hold. Today's Golfer

The book has a certain dry descriptive style that reflects the businesslike Langer we know, but it will be interesting to golfers who want to learn more about this giant of sport. Baptist Times

The title is the most original thing about it and it takes true genius to make a life as rich and interesting as Langer's read like a recipe for beans on toast. Ghost-written by a man described as 'a writer and a director of Christians in Sport'. The second part of the description may be true, the first definitely isn't. It starts with the words: 'I was born in Anhausen, near Augsberg in Southern Germany on 27 August 1957,and then gets really dull.

A devout Christian and a master of supremely efficient golf. What he lacks in brio, he's more than made up for in sheer hard work, not least in his long and (currently) successful battle with the 'yips' and the psychological strength conquering them has given him. As you'd expect, it's solid but hardly flash.
