I know a lot of people have said that Haney violated some "bond" by writing this book; I think that he is a grown man and so is Tiger. If Tiger really wants to have privacy then that should be spelled out in his contracts with people or he should treat people with respect. I don't know Tiger but I tend to believe how Haney has portrayed him. Haney doesn't malign his character nor is he vindictive. I believe that this is how their relationship was and that is all. I really didn't have a solid opinion about Tiger one way or another although I've heard less than flattering stories about him from people who've had encounters with him at tournaments. After reading this book I still don't have strong feelings about him one way or another. I just don't care about him as a golfer or a person. I believe he has done some great things on the course but I truly believe that it is over for him as a golfer. He will be remembered as a golfer who could have been the best ever.
The book was engaging and I enjoyed the behind the scenes around the life of a pro golfer. It was worth the read.
One of the best.
Many. It was very interesting to listen to all the details about Tiger and the what he is really like.
If you play golf you will like this book. I also learned a lot about how Tiger plays golf. Even for him the game is difficult.
Good not great

No, it was best broken up into sections
Writers should write, Narrators should narrate
Hank Haney did a good job of explaining what is was like to be around Tiger.
Hank as the story is told from his viewpoint.
When he realized he was done with coaching Tiger.
No, I have never been able to do that with any book. I need a break from time to time.
After listening to this book you will come away with a whole new perspective on what it is like to be around Tiger and how difficult that can be. You will also get a better idea of what it takes to be a successful professional golfer and how difficult that can be. Even though this book is written from Hanks view point, you will have a better under standing of who Tiger Woods is and maybe gain some insight into his self destructive tendencies and demeanor recently seen on the golf course and TV.
The insight into Tiger's preparation and the dedication it takes to be great was interesting. I was not surprised as to the personal aspects since it always seemed that Tiger was cold and unapproachable.
Hank Haney spent the entire book trying to get credit for Tiger's success. In fact the last chapter was an accounting of Tiger's success with Hank vs. his time with Butch. While he repeatedly stated that Tiger is the best golfer ever, he seems to want you to believe that he would have been nothing without his two coaches.
You know the ending and I don't think it would have mattered if Butch, Hank or Sean were his coach, I think he would stil be sitting on 14 majors today.
I never like when the author narrates the book. The production was suspect as well since it seemed like he constantly was adding or redoing certain sections of the book. Hank's voice would suddenly change volume and cadence.
Other than describing Tiger's work ethic it didn't shed any new light on anything. The whole Thanksgiving crash and subsequent "fall from grace" was basically glossed over with nothing new added.
Not only gives you insight into Hank and Tiger's type of relationship, but goes in depth into the types of swing changes Tiger made with Hank.
Liked that he commentated the book himself.
Yes. Nearly 9 hours of book went quickly when it's all I wanted to listen to.
I am a huge Tiger fan as a golfer. I was afraid I would lose some of that with the insinuation of the title and as Hank pointed out his faults as a person in society, but I actually sided more with Tiger when Hank and him split. Really enjoyed it.
Probably not, no need.
Seeing how Tiger truly acts towards people and what was really going on in his life when he was winning everything.
I listened to this book just to see if I could find out a bit more about the mysterious side of Tiger Woods and why he did some of the things he's done. The majority of this book is more of Hanks relationship with Tiger and how he was treated by Tiger. I don't know if I learned any more than I already knew about the elusive "Tiger" that I already didn't know.
yes I thought it to be interesting
I listen to a few tips he gave Tiger and it seemed to help my own game!
His voice was smooth and had a nice flow
Why Tiger is who he is
This book kept my attention and interest, but there was a lot of detail about Tiger's golf swing (as well as the author's). If you are not an avid golfer you may leave this book wishing for more of Tiger's story.
