I am the biggest Tiger fan in the world. When I first heard of Haney's book coming out, being named what it was. I thought, oh great, here is another person that felt betrayed by Tiger, and feels that Tiger owes them something for all that they have accomplished as a team, but did never get it, now there taking there shot at him publically with his book for the whole world to see.
I also declined I would ever read it as it would be supporting Haney in a certain way. But I couldn't help myself resist reading (as I also just have a lot of free time this summer) and I have to say that this book is a very interesting and exotic read.
This book does not necessarily bash Tiger the way I thought it would. Sure he brings out the truth about Tigers personality issues, but also backs him up by stating issues were just part of his competitive personality and bring along the fact that he really isn't like a normal person on the course, so therefore off the course he is a little bit different as well, as it does make sense. He always give many many compliments to Tiger and talks him up stating that he had no doubt he worked with the greatest golfer off all time.
This book is mostly just like a diary and a timelined description of every event the two shared together, which would be interesting to anybody.
I am glad I read this book and my only objection to the whole book is the title, I think the title is a bit misleading and makes it sound like Haney wasted his time with wasted talent, but that is not the case at all. "The Big Miss" is a teaching term and philosophy Haney has used his whole life.
Very good book.
I'M NOT GONNA READ IT.
NO MATTER WHAT, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT TIGERS PRIVATE LIFE.
I JUST WANT WATCH AND ENJOY A GREATEST GOLFER EVER.
I'M GONNA BUY AND READ THE BOOK IF HANEY PROMISES THAT
HALF THE MONEY WILL BE DONATED TO TIGER WOODS FOUNDATION.
Thanks for posting about the book.
I have ordered the book because I want to
read it and form my own opinion.
I agree with Kuki about HH donating part of
his profit to the TWF.
I will e-mail him and suggest he do that.
I will do that gladly and definately.
just need little more time and i'll start donating to tw foundation regularly.
YOU SAID IT..........LOL
