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.
