Reviews

"I have been trying to write about Tiger since he was a teenager. I thought he was unknowable. This book proves me wrong. Here, finally, is Tiger Woods."
--Michael Bamberger, senior writer for Sports Illustrated and author of Men in Green
"Meticulously reported, scrupulously fair, endlessly interesting, Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian's Tiger Woods reveals the human being long-hidden behind the golf genius. The story of Tiger's passage from driven prodigy, to lonely hero, to disgraced celebrity is compelling, and often poignant, from first page to last."
--Jeffrey Toobin, author of American Heiress and The Nine
"If King Lear had been about golf, or if the great Russian novelists had turned their lens toward modern expectations and fame, toward the most American of fathers and sons, the result would be this book. The rise and fall and return of Tiger Woods in these pages is both mythic and poignantly small and human."
--Wright Thompson, senior writer, ESPN The Magazine
"Irresistible . . . Immensely readable . . . The authors have laid out a saga that is part myth, part Shakespeare, part Jackie Collins. . . . Benedict and Keteyian bring us along for the ride in a whirlwind of a biography that reads honest and true."
--Leigh Montville, The Wall Street Journal
"There is beauty and awe in this perfectly pitched biography . . . It has torque and velocity . . . It's a confident and substantial book that's nearly as sleek as a Christopher Nolan movie. It makes a sweet sound, like a well-struck golf ball. I found it exhilarating, depressing, tawdry and moving in almost equal measure. It's a big American story. . . . The authors bring grainy new detail to almost every aspect of Woods's life."
--Dwight Garner, The New York Times
"Comprehensive, propulsive, packed with incident . . . and unsparing."
--Ian Crouch, The New Yorker
"An ambitious 360-degree portrait of golf's most scrutinized figure . . . The book features fresh reporting on almost every significant element of Woods' story. . . . It is a book brimming with revealing details."
--Sam Weinman, Golf Digest
"Chilling . . . Exhaustively researched . . . The authors present Woods as a man 'both blessed and cursed' by his otherworldly ability to separate his off-the-course problems from his performance on it. Tiger Woods is a fascinating analysis of the former, but for golf fans--and probably for Woods himself--his worth will still be judged by the latter. . . . What Benedict and Keteyian do better than in any biography I've read about Woods is detail the human costs of this machine-like focus."
--John Paul Newport, Bloomberg Businessweek
"When you read Tiger Woods, you realize these are not just high-level reporting gotchas. This is Tiger's life laid bare."
--Bryan Curtis, The Ringer
"Painstaking . . . An exhaustive dive into understanding who Tiger really is . . . Benedict and Keteyian provide extensive details."
--Financial Times
"A searing biography of golf's most blazing talent."
--GOLF magazine
"Juicy . . . A far-reaching portrait of Tiger on and off the golf course . . . Plenty of new revelations, and incredible additional detail and insight into Tiger's professional and personal life."
--Golf Digest
