Since that time, Giles has conservatively snapped more than a quarter-million photographs of Palmer. Sharing never-before-seen images of Palmer on and off the golf course over the past four decades, The King and I explores one of the most charismatic figures in the history of the game, from intimate private moments to extraordinary public events. The book is told with refreshing candor and wit by perhaps the ultimate fan of the man and also includes entertaining commentaries from Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, former President George H.W. Bush, Gov. Tom Ridge, and a host of colorful former and current PGA Tour stars.
