We Take School POs
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.

Annotation: As USA TODAY, The Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, put it, "Tom never catches Jerry???.Wile E. Coyote can't nab the Road Runner. And the rest of the PGA Tour can't run down Tiger Woods." What is it about Tiger that draws so much interest, at home and abroad? Are we intrigued by the story of Tiger as a golf prodigy? Are we awed by how quickly he's marching forward to match and set golf records? Is it the 100-kilowatt smile? Is it his unwavering intensity to play his best at every event? Is it the give-back mentality he inherited from his parents? Our fascination is likely a combination of all of these things. Tiger Woods is a worldwide phenomenon, both on and off the course. Many feel the group of golfers who continue to chase him is getting better. Unfortunately for them, so is Tiger. "I just feel that I have room for improvement," he says, "and I'm going to keep working to get better." No doubt, we'll all be watching.

Using some excerpts from [cf2]USA Today[cf1] articles, this book describes Woods's life, from child golf prodigy to top professional. Insight into Woods's personal nature is revealed through his relationship with his father, his philanthropic endeavors, and his recognition of those who paved the way for him. Though the book's design is busy, its many photographs and sidebars add interest. Reading list, timeline, websites. Glos., ind. Copyright 2009 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Although his athletic achievements (and rare disappointments) are duly noted, this biography of the golfing great also touches on his personality, family relationships, and lucrative endorsement contracts, making for a well-rounded portrait. Accompanied by standard color photographs, the text has a rushed quality and contains supplemental boxed information on golfing basics and other players. Bib., glos., ind.

Gr 5-9–This series boasts lively, credible writing and a compelling layout. Particularly interesting are the reprints of USA Today articles found throughout, which flesh out the narratives in a unique and appealing manner. Endnotes acknowledge the sources of quotes and other information. Full-color and black-and-white photos appear on almost every spread; while some are excellent, others are of lesser quality, though their content is consistently relevant. Tiger Woods includes information on the game itself and has diagrams of famous golf holes. No holds are barred in Oprah's biography; that she was a victim of sexual abuse and gave birth at age 14 are mentioned in a matter-of-fact manner. These uplifting books focus on the passion that these individuals feel for their life's work. The subjects, format, and engaging writing style make this a series that kids will read for fun.
