The Swinger Michael Bamberger & Alan Shipnuck Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

A sports hero seeks a comeback in this wildly funny and ultimately redemptive novel.

His name, as we all know, is Herbert X. “Tree” Tremont, and he’s the richest and most celebrated athlete of our time—a multicultural golfing icon with fifty-three Tour wins, thirteen major victories, a smoking hot wife, and two adorable kids. But when a reporter uncovers evidence that Tree’s sexual appetites are as prodigious as his tee shots, his public and private lives collide, producing the juiciest scandal in sports history. In this wickedly funny novel that takes readers between the ropes and the sheets of the PGA Tour as never before, the only thing more entertaining than Tree’s downfall is his quest for redemption.

    I was interested in this book since somewhere, either in the reviews or the description, there were references to this being a great golf book. I found the book to significantly miss the mark. Is it fiction or non-fiction? At times I wanted to say to the author "if you want to write fiction then please come up with your own story and if this is non-fiction do the research and write it as such.".

    This was such a good read and kept me interested the whole way through. I don't like not knowing which parts are true and which are pure fiction though, because I actually look at Tiger in a different way now.

    As a golfer and PGA Tour fan I could not keep Tiger's face out of mind, as intended, I am sure. I really enjoyed the book and only wonder on how much of it was truly based on "you know who". Does not matter, it was an interesting book.

    Excellent read....if you are a golf fan and have had this burning curiosity as to what "may" have really happened to Tiger....this book is about as close as we can get to the actual story. Well written...humorous, sad, shocking, and yet folksy...it delivers. Whether you are a Tiger fan hoping for his come back or just a golf fan hoping the game can recapture some of it's lost magic you will find yourself both hating and rooting for Tree in this one.

    At first I figured this book would be a regurgitation of the Tiger Woods' saga. I liked what Michael did here. Very entertaining.

    Well written, in first person - just enough different from the real story to make it both fascinating and intriguing. The author stays far enough out of the way to let the story tell itself
  • Outstanding

    A disappointment. Combination of what probably happened and the authors' version of a happy ending. Much more sad than funny.
