An interesting analysis of the Tiger Woods sex scandal and the media hype that fed the beast. An anthropological study of our culture's obsession with fame and misfortune. Superb narration by McConnohie.
When the PGA's superstar crashed his car into a tree and became engulfed in scandal, it seemed as if the world couldn’t wait to rip him to shreds.
The clean-cut, post-racial It-Man became a sweating Lothario overnight. The long tail of this epic has surpassed everyone's initial projection.
The ferocity of the public judgement suggests Tiger was condemned for more than “professional-athlete-has-illicit-sex” deserves. Enter author Orin Starn with an unsparing and witty analysis.
The Passion of Tiger Woods is written from a quirky anthropologist’s perspective. Composed post-Tiger-gate— if one can say it ever ends— this book examines America’s fascination with sports, celebrities, scandals, and racial conflict. Eat it up with a big, BIG spoon.
