This book examines the career of Tiger Woods, from child star to global sports celebrity. Starn shows that while the scandal following the revelation of Tiger's infidelities was like many similar media-generated scandals of recent years, by examining the way Woods was seen afterwards, we can learn a lot about race and sex in contemporary America.

Using the influential and field-changing Writing Culture as a point of departure, the thirteen essays in Writing Culture and the Life of Anthropology address anthropology's past, present, and future. The contributors, all leading figures in anthropology today, reflect back on the "writing culture" movement of the 1980s, consider its influences on ethnographic research and writing, and debate what counts as ethnography in a post-Writing Culture era. They address questions of ethnographic method, new forms the presentation of research might take, and the anthropologist's role. Exploring themes such as late industrialism, precarity, violence, science and technology, globalization, and the non-human world, this book is essential reading for those looking to understand the current state of anthropology and its possibilities going forward. Contributors. Anne Allison, James Clifford, Michael M.J. Fischer, Kim Fortun, Richard Handler, John L. Jackson, Jr., George E. Marcus, Charles Piot, Hugh Raffles, Danilyn Rutherford, Orin Starn, Kathleen Stewart, Michael Taussig, Kamala Visweswaran

Gary Player's Black Book contains fifty questions and detailed responses from eighteen-time major winner Gary Player. The book, divided into three parts, focuses on specific scenarios and problems that arise in golf, life, and business. In the first section on golf, topics include putting, scoring, etiquette, the mental side of the game, and fitness and nutrition. In the section on life, Player, the father of six and grandfather to twenty-two, addresses issues such as parenting, who to turn to when in need of advice, and more. Finally, in the section on business, he details how to deal with competition, among other topics. Player responds to questions such as: • Golf: How do I play a bunker shot from a plugged lie? • Life: I feel like I’ve lost the passion for what I do. How do I get that back? • Business: When people criticize my work I take it very personally. How do you handle criticism? The 2012 recipient of the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award, Player draws from both on and off the course experiences dealing with competitors, businesspeople, and family. In doing so, he offers a unique glimpse into handling adversity with regard to these relationships. The advice that he offers is invaluable to fans of all ages.

We live in a self-evident age where the issue of the day is whether life has any meaning. RELEASE is about the works in our natures. Are these works self-evident or revealed to us? Can you play the game of golf with a self-evident nature known only to the senses or do you need a test to know you are truly playing? Do you need to be free to pass the test? RELEASE explores the passion in the game of golf which drives the player forward. It's a passion which will compel you to wonder whether you are really striking the ball at all. Is the game of golf and life itself originating in your soul? Are you passing the tests of life because you are free and therefore can see the abundance you need to drive out all excuses? So much of life and golf is the abundance you need to drive out all excuses. Is that possible? My book says data can never be the absolute answer to striking the ball in the game of life. There is another answer which eliminates all excuses and that answer is the meaning of RELEASE, a meaning that will surely not leave you alone on your journey inside being.Quotes"Golf swing is so simple we can't do it.""Golf swing is a motion we try to perfect but can't feel.""There are no parts to the golf swing, it's all one motion.""When the club is released, there is no fear." All quotes are attributed to Mike Wynn, PGA Pro

An educator, top-ranked college ball player and Green Beret who served in Vietnam, Earl Woods reveals the instruction and training secrets that went into raising a child who might be the greatest golfer ever. His teaching method starts with the simplest swings: Putting, chipping and pitching, and doesn't introduce the full swing until the basics have been mastered. The book includes dozens of games and competitions to make golf fun and interesting, teaches mental toughness and emphasizes skills, posture, balance, set-up and grip. There are also some subtler points for parents to consider: when and how to introduce golf (or any sport) to their child; how to lay the groundwork for open communication; and how to cultivate the right attitude toward competition. Through an intelligent mix of instruction, humor and common sense, Training a Tiger helps parents everywhere lead their kids to love the game, and to play it with confidence, patience, proficiency and passion.
