At twenty, Tiger Woods made his debut in a Nike commercial. "Hello, World," he said. "Are you ready for me?" The world was ready. His handlers kept a tight rein on the private superstar, carefully controlling his media coverage. Although everyone recognizes Tiger Woods, his true character has remained a mystery.

Tiger: The Real Story is the riveting story of this gifted athlete who tasted unprecedented success and fame. Using his storied golf career as a backdrop, it examines how the people closest to Tiger — an ambitious father, an ambivalent mother, and a starstruck wife — have shaped him into a complex and conflicted man. Central to the story is Tiger himself: how media hype and a sudden fall from grace have nearly destroyed his personal and professional life... and where he goes from here.

    This book was interesting for Tiger fans and well written. It helped me understand some of the stories behind his decisions.
