Another one of those times I wish one could give half stars, as this one would rate at three and a half. Nothing too shocking revealed, although it is amazing how often Tiger finishes in the top five in a tournament during weeks where he appears to have nothing in the tank as he prepares.

Haney delivers a fair treatment towards Tiger. He calls him out for his shortcomings and applauds his greatness. Tiger certainly is portrayed as a difficult individual to be around. One could argue the greatest in any field tends to have serious issues dealing with society in a "normal" fashion.

A book that might be more enjoyed by individuals that have a working understanding of the golf swing. Haney seems to be trying to come to terms with his triumphs and failures during the time spent with Tiger. He gives props, as he should, to Butch Harmon and the time that he had previously been Tiger's swing coach.
