“We all relate to the relationship between father and son or parents and their children. That’s where Tom started looking for Tiger, and he found him.” —Gary Player
“When it comes to style, fresh insight, and perspective, few in a crowded field can even make the cut. As expected, Tom betters par by several strokes.”
—Bob Costas, NBC
“Tom Callahan writing about anything is like Julia Child saying, ‘If you don’t have any plans, stick around and I’ll make you dinner.’ ”
—Tony Kornheiser, Washington Post
“Tom Callahan knows the game of golf as well as anyone in the business. Many years, not just many nights, went into the telling of this story. A lot of Tom’s heart is in here, too.” —Jack Nicklaus
“In Search of Tiger deserves a place among the finest books ever written on golf or sports. It is the only Tiger book you ever need to read.” —Dan Jenkins
“Nobody now writing about sports brings more substantial gifts to that strange line of work than Tom Callahan. The voice is untheatrically eloquent, wry, and wise, frequently letting us in on unobtrusive truths that turn out to be strikingly relevant. His enthusiasm for his subject is tempered by a civilised worldliness. He is never cynical but, as was said of the great Chicago columnist Mike Royko, he is baloney-proof. I have long been convinced that he has a clearer understanding than anybody else I know of the essence and implications of the Tiger Woods phenomenon. In Search of Tiger reinforces that conviction.”
—Hugh McIlvanney, The Sunday Times of London
