Greg Norman is golf’s most complex and controversial celebrity and perhaps its most gifted and charismatic player. He reigned as the world’s number-one-ranked golfer for most of a decade and began 1998 as the PGA Tour’s career-earnings leader with almost $12 million. As ruthless in the boardroom as he is on the golf course, the Shark turned a $2 million stake in Cobra Golf into a payoff of more than $40 million. Three parts Crocodile Dundee, two parts Jack Nicklaus, and one part Don Quixote, the jet-setting Shark is larger than life. Yet Norman is also the sport’s most notorious victim of cruel calamity and inexplicable defeats. This riveting biography by acclaimed journalist Lauren St. John examines Norman’s conquests as well as his failures and his relationships with his father, his agents, and fellow golfers.

Shark: The Biography of Greg Norman is the first ever published to include original and extensive comments from Norman himself. The author's unparalleled access to Norman's peers, family, and friends rounds out this fascinating account of one of golf's all-time great enigmas.
