In 2009, Tiger Woods was the most famous athlete on the planet. Married to a Swedish beauty and the father of two young children, he was the winner of 14 major golf championships and earning more than $100 million annually. But it was all a carefully crafted illusion. As it turned out, Woods had been living a double life for years --- one that unraveled in the aftermath of a Thanksgiving-night car crash that exposed his serial infidelity and sent his personal and professional lives over a cliff. Still, the world has always wondered: Who is Tiger Woods, really? In TIGER WOODS, Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian look deep behind the headlines to produce a richly reported answer to that question.

by Steve Young, with Jeff Benedict - Memoir, Nonfiction, Sports

Steve Young produced some of the most memorable moments in NFL history: his electrifying 49-yard game-winning touchdown against Minnesota, his last-second touchdown strike to Terrell Owens to beat Green Bay in the playoffs, and his record-setting six touchdown passes in Super Bowl XXIX. But his most impressive victories were personal ones that were won off the field when no one was watching. QB is a remarkably revealing memoir of an athletically gifted Mormon boy with a 4.0 GPA, a photographic memory, and a severe case of childhood separation anxiety. At the same time, Young was absolutely fearless --- and unstoppable --- whenever he had a ball in his hands.
