The position of golfer Tiger Woods as one of the most prominent athletes on the planet in 2009, and the ensuing exposure of Woods's complicated private life which scuppered the personal and the professional, cast the public sense of Woods as a character into a confusion that this biography aims to cut through with over 400 interviews taken across the golfer's inner circle, establishing an intimate portrait.

'All the grisly details are here...a professionally executed, admirably even-toned biography whose only fault may prove to be in arriving a few chapters early.' -- Giles Smith * The Times * 'This meticulous, dogged, thorough re-examination of his life suggests there was more to Woods than met the eye... There are many more anecdotes in this pacey, unyielding book that make you squirm as you read them.' -- Jim White * Mail on Sunday * 'As realistic and compelling a third-person portrait as we're likely to get. Highly recommend.' -- Mark Eglinton 'A portrait more complete than any that have come before' -- David Walsh * Sunday Times * 'Magnificent' -- Michael Calvin 'A superb read' -- Paul Kimmage 'An ambitious 360-degree portrait of golf's most scrutinised figure...it is a book brimming with revealing details about Woods' unique background. The real achievement in Tiger Woods is...in describing how Woods became who he is - uniquely gifted, widely admired, but also emotionally stunted by his parents. The book features fresh reporting on almost every significant element of Woods' story.' -- Sam Weinman * Golf Digest * 'Immensely readable...the authors have laid out a saga that is part myth, part Shakespeare, part Jackie Collins, plus a touch of ESPN... Benedict and Keteyian bring us along for the ride in a whirlwind of a biography that reads honest and true.' -- Leigh Montville * Wall Street Journal * 'An admirable piece of reporting...a rattling read, taking us through the most dramatic rise and fall of perhaps any sportsman in history. Superbly written.' -- Derek Lawrenson * Daily Mail * 'I found it exhilarating, depressing, tawdry and moving in almost equal measure...There is beauty and awe in this perfectly pitched biography, as we watch Woods's skills blossom...This intense book gives us Woods's almost mythical rise and fall. It has torque and velocity, even when all of Woods's shots, on the course and off it, begin heading for the weeds.' -- Dwight Garner * New York Times *
