Would I buy this again? No. Hank falls into the trap of starting to coach TW while thinking they were going to be close friends and everything would be hunky dory. Tiger is clearly a tricky customer and Hank can't tune into the TW mentality. The book seems to be a fair but somewhat "please believe me" defence of his contribution to TW golf career although he likes to take a naughty little dig at TW and reveals some rather average titbits. He would have been better off not giving a #### whether TW sacked him or not. Some people aren't worth the bother and HH should have accepted that TW was a pain from day 1 instead of being in awe and acting like a servant. A player of this calibre is not going to be an easy ride and the overall picture of TW is a very single minded golf genius who lacks empathy and can't really sustain meaningful relationships with women and few men. He could have added some key perspectives which might have been more interesting. Did TW go off the rails when his father died and sought solace by pointlessly trawling through salubrious women? Was TW wife boring and superficial to the extent he played around? Is TW just another case of philandering father setting a poor example to his son? Is TW bored with golf and the passion dwindled? Is JN record just seeming a bit too far away thesedays in view of how close TW has been all to often yet putted himself out of contention? Maybe TW is simply not interesting beyond golf. Let's face it, golfers, like many sportsfolk, ain't that interesting. Few write anything great.

HH is not a writer and he has to take a position. It should have been a very technical book or a complete slamming of TW. One feels that TW kept plenty from him so the latter could not be written. It wasn't. As for the technical text- the sales would be low. This book will be forgotten and adds little in my opinion: a coach who clearly did care but didn't end on a high note because he never got the relationship he needed for the simple reason that it was simply not available. TW is not winning because he lost focus and HH was there to see his sun set slowly.

Bit like your doctor telling all your mates about the boil on your bum down the local pub. Entertaining read though. Get well soon Tiger!

Fantastic and honest analysis of Woods as a person and as a golfer. He does not pull any punches.

For golf fans, this is a must. Frank Haney's dedication and time, while no doubt well compensated, was not worth a row of beans from that well known S***, Tiger Woods. Wood's true character come through as a totally unpleasant guy.

a good read, hank really opens up about tiger and his trials and tribulations. he is very revealing and quite damning about his personal life. the closest thing I have read regarding tigers true personality and life behind the scenes. very recommended.
