John McEnroe's long-awaited follow-up to his #1 bestseller
He is one of the most controversial and beloved athletes in
history, a tennis legend and a volcanic, mesmerizing
presence. But after reaching the top of his game - what came
next? Fifteen years after his international number-one
bestseller You Cannot Be Serious, John McEnroe is back and
ready to talk.
Now the undisputed elder statesman of tennis, McEnroe has
won over his critics as a brilliant commentator at the US
Open, Wimbledon, and other Grand Slam tournaments - with
outspoken views on the modern game, its top players, and the
world of 21st century sport and celebrity. Who are the
game's winners and losers? What's it like playing guitar
onstage with the Rolling Stones, hitting balls with today's
greats, confronting his former on-court nemeses, getting
scammed by an international art dealer, and raising a big
family while balancing McEnroe-sized expectations?
In But Seriously, John McEnroe confronts his demons and
reveals his struggle to reinvent himself from champion and
tennis legend to father, broadcaster, and author. The result
is a richly personal account, blending anecdote and
reflection with razor sharp and brutally honest opinions,
all in McEnroe's signature style.
This is the sports book of the year: wildly entertaining,
very funny, surprisingly touching, and 100% McEnroe.
