Reviews

"This book is going to be controversial. There is no question about it. . . . It is the most unvarnished view of the tour--the biggest tour in the world--that I've ever read. And it's not close."--Gary Williams, Golf Channel "Slaying the Tiger is an unflinching look at these men, and the depth and honesty of the material is remarkable. . . . [Shane Ryan] dug deep and got the kind of background information on the players he features that was absent from or barely hinted at in other outlets. . . . This book is certain to be as important to this era as [John] Feinstein's [A Good Walk Spoiled] was two decades ago. . . . A well-researched, in-depth look at the men who inhabit the highest levels of the game, at the end of one era and the advent of another, Slaying the Tiger is a must-read for PGA Tour fans from the casual to the most dedicated."--Examiner.com "An important step away from clich sportswriting that has saturated golf media for decades . . . Slaying the Tiger should be remembered not for what traditionalists have tried to label it but instead for what it is a masterfully written account of an important time in golf history in a style that is synonymous to the book's core message."--Adam Fonseca, Golf Unfiltered "Absolutely marvelous . . . Ryan's writing flows and his reporting turns pages for you. From debunking the Victor Dubuisson myth to blowing up the social construction of Patrick Reed, the entire thing is tremendous. . . . Your only regret will be that there aren't 400 more pages to peruse."--Kyle Porter, CBS Sports "A riveting read."--Library Journal "I think it's important to have books like this in the canon of golf, in the canon of sports."--Damon Hack, Golf Channel "With Eldrick Woods reduced to a sideshow, Shane Ryan's Slaying the Tiger offers bright, opinionated prose on the modern game. Ryan's fresh look is just what we golfer/readers want."--Curt Sampson, New York Times bestselling author of Hogan "Ryan does a fantastic job painting a thoughtful and accurate portrait of the new crop of heirs apparent. . . . With enthusiasm and irreverence, Ryan explores the various personalities of these newer faces in the game and probes into their backgrounds via a bevy of sources, from their parents to their college coaches, to paint intriguing and colorful and sometimes brutally honest portraits of the personalities that have taken over the PGA Tour."--Stephanie Wei, Wei Under Par "An exquisite study of a number of the PGA Tour's stars with an emphasis on the younger generation about to take over from Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson."--Ryan Ballengee, Golf News Net From the Hardcover edition.
