Although I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I can only recommend it to serious golfers. Even the casual golfer will probably be bored. This is a round by round account of Tiger Woods' 2009 season. If you don't know the difference between a high cut and a low draw, this book is not for you.
Although it chronicles Tiger's 2009 year on the tour, it only lightly covers his scandals. The detailed discussions of each tournament and his changing his swing will likely only interest golfers but the strategy and personal feuds on the tour are worthy of a soap opera. I thought the writer did a fine job getting first hand accounts and details. If not a golfer, this probably isn't for you.
The author begins by telling us that Woods is competitive, secretive, and inscrutable. He followed Woods for a year (2009) from tournament to tournament. Despite some interesting anecdotes, the book leaves us knowing little else than that Woods is competitive, secretive, and inscrutable. We knew that to begin with.
