It documents the roles and lives of his parents, his upbringing and early life, accomplishments, and philanthropic activities including the Tiger Woods Foundation, along with the contributions of early African American golfers who paved the way, the history of broadcasting and sports, and the relationship between Woods and sponsors. His recent marital problems are covered in the epilogue." - Reference & Research Book News "Mandatory for all Tiger Woods fans, this impressively detailed, 232-page biography also offers a brief overview of broadcasting and sports, and the relationship between professional athletes and their financial sponsors, making it an ideal and very highly recommended addition for school and community library American Biography collections." - Midwest Book Review
