FULL ACCESS - AN OBJECTIVE REPORT FROM INSIDE
on May 12, 2010
If you like Golf - insight into the makings of a huge Superstar - and an understanding of 'the perfect storm' underlying the fall - you will love this Book. Access to Tiger, his Caddie, Reporters, PGA Professionals, and friends provides an unusual insight, which separates this Book from others.
Covering all of Tiger's 2009 Tournaments, the Author lays out Tiger's early relationship and upbringing, along with his relationships with PGA Players, the Press, Team Tiger, close friends - and - finally - the Fall. Tiger's dominance over those around him (Including the 'Golf' - really 'Tiger' Channel)ultimately undermined him. When he needed some friends and Professional Mentors to take him aside, he had none - only clinging admirers, fellow party goers, and money managers.
Delicate yet direct, this Book chronicles Tiger's 'comeback' year, which blows up @ Thanksgiving and beyond. The tournament by tournament insight builds a portrait of this insulated self centered world class superstar. The same qualities that contributed to his success, also brought him down. The 2007 wake up call involving the 'Fitness' magazine did nothing, as he paid it no heed. 'Unplayable' is a journalistic hit, which gets you under the layers of the multitude of spins and counter spins. It also brings you the Golf - which is sometimes now forgotten.
