Unplayable: An Inside Account of Tiger's Most Tumultuous Season : Since his professional debut in 1996, Tiger Woods has reigned as the world's greatest living golfer, having singlehandedly increased the popularity of the game and become one of the most recognized faces in the world. His major knee surgery in 2008 and subsequent nine month absence from professional play raised questions about whether he would be able to return to the same level of play and fulfill his destiny that had before appeared all but assured. And more than just Tiger's legacy hung in the balance - his continued winning was understood to be crucial for the entire sport, so the stakes were huge for fans, the pro tour, the networks, sponsors, not to mention all the individuals and businesses that make a living off golf. Robert Lusetich set out in January 2009 to follow Woods for the year. The only journalist to cover every PGA TOUR tournament Tiger played, Lusetich interviewed tournament directors, agents, caddies, PGA Tour officials, sponsors, rival players and those inside Woods's camp, and has continued to cover Woods through the end of the season, including the subsequent scandal surrounding his marital infidelities. Unplayable is the definitive, comprehensive behind-the-scenes look at how the 2009 season unfolded for Woods, both personally and professionally. The book offers a richly compelling narrative of Tiger's victories and defeats - all while conveying the untold story of the bitter rivalries and ongoing tensions among top players - and explains how Woods managed to lead a double-life while dominating in one of the world's most competitive sports. Standing apart from all of the other reporting on the scandal to date, Unplayable gives much needed insight into how one of the world's most reclusive celebrities maintained a public persona at odds with his private life.
