Overview


Born to a father who described him as the “chosen one” and a mother who called him the “universal child,” Tiger Woods was groomed for the fame and influence that his parents believed was his destiny. At age twenty, he made his debut in a Nike commercial. “Hello, world,” he said. “Are you ready for me?”

The world was ready.

For the next thirteen years, Tiger nearly lived up to his parents’ outsized expectations. He conquered the world of golf, settled down with a beautiful Swedish model, and started a family. His net worth approached one billion dollars. Everything was going according to plan—until the scandal hit.

Steve Helling has long covered Tiger Woods’s career, and here he draws on intimate sources— many speaking out for the first time—to create a never-before-seen portrait of the golfer.

Editorial Reviews

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). (May)
From the Publisher

PortlandBook 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.”
