'A rattling read . . . Superbly written.' Daily Mail
In 2009, Tiger Woods was the most famous athlete on the planet, a sporting star of almost unfathomable fame and fortune living what appeared to be the perfect life - professionally and personally. Winner of fourteen major golf championships and seventy-nine PGA Tour events, Woods was the first billion-dollar athlete, earning more than $100 million a year in endorsements from the likes of Nike, Gillette, AT&T and Gatorade.
But it was all a carefully crafted illusion. Woods had been living a double life for years - one that exploded in the aftermath of a late-night crash that exposed his serial infidelity and sent his personal and professional life off a cliff. Drawing on more than four hundred interviews with people from every corner of Woods’s life, acclaimed investigative journalists Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian dig deep behind the headlines to produce a richly researched answer to the question that has mystified millions of sports fans: who is Tiger Woods?
Based on three years of extensive research and reporting, two of today’s most acclaimed investigative journalists, Jeff Benedict of Sports Illustrated and eleven-time Emmy Award winner Armen Keteyian, deliver the first major biography of Tiger Woods.
I am no Tiger Woods fan.
I have never liked his aloof nature and find it disgusting that he not only cheated on his wife, but that it was in such a large scale and calculated manor.
However this book is a total slander against his, and his fathers characters. It makes both men out to be monsters and offers no balance on the good in each, excluding praising Woods golf ability.
Terribly written, biased garbage. Waste of my money and time.
