Summary:

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.

    A well written account of what makes Tiger Woods who he is. Best part of the book to me is the exploration of both the good and bad of Tiger Woods. His success is well documented, his failures not as much. It was interesting to hear about the "behind the scenes" things that affected Tiger personally and professionally. I found the book to be detailed and unbiased.
