Tiger: The Real Story by Steve Helling (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see below for features list). Before the scandal, the world knew very little about Tiger Woods. After the scandal, they knew him even less. His handlers kept a tight rein on the private superstar, carefully controlling his media coverage. Although everyone recognizes Tiger Woods, his true character has remained a mystery. Steve Helling, a People magazine writer who has covered Tiger for several years, draws on intimate sources—many speaking out for the first time—to create a vivid, sometimes inspiring, and often astonishing portrait of the golfer. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other retailers for higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by veteran actor Kevin Kenerly. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration.

RATING: 12+ For discussions of sex and drug use. ___________________ Tiger is the riveting story of a gifted athlete who tasted unprecedented success and fame. Using his golf career as a backdrop, it examines how the people closest to Tiger have shaped him into a conflicted man, how media hype and a sudden fall from grace have nearly destroyed his life…and where he goes from here.
