1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the digital ink it was printed with, May 25, 2010

This review is from: Tiger: The Real Story (Kindle Edition)
By the author's own admission he has had no meaningful interaction with Tiger Woods. As a result, most of what's in this book is a re-hash of newspaper and magazine articles. The reader will find no new insight into Tiger Woods or what makes him tick. There's really nothing here for someone interested in the game of golf. This is just another product of a culture mad about celebrity. The best parts of the book were mini-biographies of Tiger's parents who are in many ways more interesting than he is (off the course, that is). The book reads like a People magazine article which was explained when I got to the end of the book and found out that the author is a writer for the same magazine. If you like People magazine or other publications of that variety, then this may be your cup of tea. If you are looking for something substantive about Tiger, the spirit of an elite athlete or the game of golf you will be disappointed by this book.

I really appreciated this review as I am a Tiger fan and almost bought this book. This author is just a another in a long line of people trying to cash in on others problems.

I normally read all reviews, but take them with a grain of salt. I'll get the book, read it, and then do a review. Everyone has a different idea of what's "good" and what's "bad." So, I'll take my chances.
