Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
We all know that Tiger Woods' first coach was his father, but you may not know that his father intentionally tried to distract and rattle him as a boy—making loud noises as he swung and rolling balls in front of him. Earl Woods' singular purpose was to build the focus and concentration that has given Tiger his inner drive, even as he built a powerful drive on the golf course. Tiger's mother, meanwhile, taught him the Buddhist principles of harmony and balance that she learned as a child in Thailand. Kultida Woods' parents were of Thai, Chinese and European heritage. Tiger has fought discrimination, won accolades and become a role model as an African-American. Tiger's mother named him Eldrick—E for Earl, K for Kultida so he would always be surrounded by his parents; Earl preferred "Tiger" in memory of the bravest man he'd ever met—a colonel in the South Vietnamese army. After several big wins brought him the popularity of a rock star, his coach advised Tiger that he could retire and live privately off his winnings or "find a way to enjoy life in the public eye and have fun." Tiger decided to have fun. This biography is full of color photos and fascinating details. It is perfect for the young person who enjoys either the game of golf or the celebrity of Tiger Woods, but it is also perfect for the young reader who needs to learn that concentration and a will to succeed can overcome perceived obstacles. 2001, Millbrook Press, . Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Karen Leggett
KLIATT
Tiger Woods has dominated the sports world recently, and more and more young people seem to be adopting him as a role model. This biography is well written and its many full-color photos of Tiger from his youth to the present help make it appealing. The author captures the early struggles of Tiger and his mentor father, and then takes him up through the highly successful year of 2000. Throughout the book, the reader will find documentation of just what Tiger Woods has accomplished in a very short career and how his achievements compare with those of the great golfers of all time. Very readable and well stocked with photos and useful statistics, this should be a welcome addition to any YA collection. KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2001, Millbrook, 62p. illus. 23cm. 00-056624., $7.95. Ages 13 to 15. Reviewer: Deane A. Beverly; Pawcatuck, CT , July 2001 (Vol. 35, No. 4)
