Reviews

'An admirable piece of reporting...a rattling read, taking us through the most dramatic rise and fall of perhaps any sportsman in history. Superbly written.' -- Derek Lawrenson * Daily Mail *
'This meticulous, dogged, thorough re-examination of his life suggests there was more to Woods than met the eye... There are many more anecdotes in this pacey, unyielding book that make you squirm as you read them.' -- Jim White * Mail on Sunday *
'All the grisly details are here...a professionally executed, admirably even-toned biography whose only fault may prove to be in arriving a few chapters early.' -- Giles Smith * The Times *
'I found it exhilarating, depressing, tawdry and moving in almost equal measure...There is beauty and awe in this perfectly pitched biography, as we watch Woods's skills blossom...This intense book gives us Woods's almost mythical rise and fall. It has torque and velocity, even when all of Woods's shots, on the course and off it, begin heading for the weeds.' -- Dwight Garner * New York Times *
'A superb read' -- Paul Kimmage
'Magnificent' -- Michael Calvin
'A portrait more complete than any that have come before' -- David Walsh * Sunday Times *
'As realistic and compelling a third-person portrait as we're likely to get. Highly recommend.' -- Mark Eglinton
'Immensely readable...the authors have laid out a saga that is part myth, part Shakespeare, part Jackie Collins, plus a touch of ESPN... Benedict and Keteyian bring us along for the ride in a whirlwind of a biography that reads honest and true.' -- Leigh Montville * Wall Street Journal *
'A scathing and vivid re-examination of the double life of a serial philanderer, sex addict and liar who was also once a revered athlete and the wealthiest sportsman in the world.' * Mail on Sunday, Sports Books of the Year *
'Scrupulously researched...it reads as a poetic encyclopedia. This account goes a long way towards helping you understand him.' -- Adam Powers * Daily Express *
'An exhaustive account...of his incredible rise, fall and rise again.' -- David Gurney * Metro, Top 30 Sports Books of the Last 30 Years *
'With the rigour that marks the best American journalistic traditions...[Tiger's] career chronicled and his flaws laid bare.' * Sunday Times, Sports Books of the Year *
'An ambitious 360-degree portrait of golf's most scrutinised figure...it is a book brimming with revealing details about Woods' unique background. The real achievement in Tiger Woods is...in describing how Woods became who he is - uniquely gifted, widely admired, but also emotionally stunted by his parents. The book features fresh reporting on almost every significant element of Woods' story.' -- Sam Weinman * Golf Digest *
`This scrupulously researched biography chronologically details the life of a man who many believe is the greatest golfer to have ever lived and it reads as a poetic encyclopedia. The author conducted more than 400 interviews and read 320 press conferences and 20 books to produce this factual, critical and thought-provoking account which covers Wood's life on and off the course... It is arguably impossible to empathise with Woods...But this account goes a long way to helping you understand him.' * Daily Express *
`An exhaustive account ... of his incredible rise, fall and rise again...' * Metro *
`Arguably the most serious attempt ever made to get behind golf's great enigma, taking a meticulously investigative approach to his fall from grace' * The Guardian *
