2.0 out of 5 stars Earl's loins, November 30, 2010
This review is from: His Father's Son: Earl and Tiger Woods (Hardcover)
This book is about a year too early as it was clearly rushed into print to take advantage of the current Tiger publishing craze. Callahan was given a lot of access to the Woods family--and that access is a point of critique throughout the book. It's clear that Family Woods keeps an up-to-the day ledger of who's written what about Tiger--and who will be granted access in the future.

Some of Callahan's most titillating material remains just that, especially the one-year estrangement between father and son due to Earl's sexual escapades--or so Callahan leads us to believe. It's also clear that Earl was a BS artist beyond compare as he loved to plant stories with favored reporters about Tiger's exploits on and off the course. His death, sadly for many reporters, stopped at least some interesting news coming out of the Woods camp that wasn't written, edited and delivered by the International Management Group.

Finally, the organization of the book is just plain odd: Callahan's book proceeds chronologically based on the majors that Tiger wins. Moreover, his interludes with Ernie Els and other Tiger competition badly fractures the already strained arrangement.

Read the book if you're a Tiger junkie. If you're not, wait for the second, revised edition.
