From Publishers Weekly
Helling's biography offers insight mainly into Tiger's early years as a rising star with an impeccable reputation and stretches itself a bit as it tries to comment on the recent scandals plaguing the golfer. Kevin Kenerly's narration is standard fare; he reads in a deep and steady journalistic bass tone that is flexible enough to make certain insights sound secretive--to little effect. Helling brings mostly thin leads and hearsay to his account of what makes Tiger tick. A Da Capo hardcover (Reviews, July 5).

Portland Book Review, 9/22/11
“A fascinating read, reminiscent of driving by a car accident; you don’t want to look but you do it anyway…The author did an amazing job keeping the facts just that.”

To do what he did and does, to your wife and kids and then have legal liars to get you out of everything is just pathetic.
You don't see Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer or Lee Travino, Johnny Miller or Gary Player on the front pages tearing golf down and making it in the same league as basketball or football thugs.
"Eldric" gets away with it, because he brings so much money to the game and ratings, that everyone is scared to say anything because they'll get on Tigers "banned list".
People don't know it I guess, but if Tiger never plays again, the game will be just fine and continue to be great as it has for hundreds of years before him. The media and reporters and players sacrifice the character of this game by keeping their mouths shut, and looking the other way in return for CASH, and many of us don't like it. No one could get away with what tiger brings to the game in terms of lack of class and breeding and anyone that tried would be shut out of the game just like that low-life John Daly.
In closing, I know a lot of today's low class bums will not like my review, because they're all brainwashed into loving "big names" and stars, and not the game or the kind of character it stands for, but to some of us we still look up to at least one thing or one game or person on the planet that is a good roll model, and has class and shows some etiquette and reverence or respect for something great. The game has lost that with Eldrick at it's helm, and won't ever be the same is my guess.
Golf isn't FOR everyone, because it's also about integrity, honesty and character and how one caries themselves, so most people won't like the game for that very reason today, and I'm okay with that. But to lose another level of dignity in a country or world that feels it necessary to trash everything in sight, just brings us all down one more level toward the bottom and for that, I'm sorry to see tiger in the game.
As proof of what I say, he's been caught cheating 5 TIMES THIS YEAR SO FAR to show how low this man can get, and bring everything down to his level.
His journey is awe inspiring and makes for a good read although I wanted to know more about his "love stories", with the many, many women who came forward publicly. It doesn't seem to be very current, as you don't find out what happens between Tiger and his wife, or the journey after the media saturation.
