All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

After an introductory chapter, each of these formulaic profiles cover an athlete's childhood and early career. The remaining sections focus on professional accomplishments and highlights. Despite the perfunctory nature of these brief treatments, a colorful page design, crisp photographs, and large print should appeal to younger and reluctant readers. Reading list, websites.

Woods's rise to the elite in the world of golf is described in five short chapters. Savage begins this lively account by describing his subject's experiences at the Masters and then backtracks to his successes and challenges in his rise to stardom. The athlete's personality, strong family ties, and determination emerge through his single-minded focus on being a world-class golfer. Good-quality, full-color photos appear throughout. Some knowledge of the game is helpful, but many terms are defined within the text and others, printed in bold letters, appear in a short glossary. Where opinion is given, the author documents his view with quotes from others. The lively style of writing combined with the color photographs give this biography an appealing edge over Allison Teague's Prince of the Fairway (Avisson, 1997), Aaron Boyd's Tiger Woods (Morgan Reynolds, 1997), and S. A. Kramer's longer Tiger Woods (Random, 1998). Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreeboro Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
