Format: Hardcover
The book is a wonderful biography of one of the finest tennis players of all time. The author has revealed to the reader the real John McEnroe. A person who craved to be perfect snd even a slightest mistake resulted in a tantrum . The book tells us that after all the superbrat is not all that bad that the media makes him to appear to be. His heart is in the right place. He is charitable and most importantly extremely patriotic . His davis cup performance remains unmatched. Some on the incidents narrated in the life of John tells us about the life of a tennis pro and what the players have to go through out there. The pressures, the dissapointments and the injuries that can destroy a career for good. The book arouses your interest and is difficult to put away till you have finished reading it. I will put it down in my list of favourite titles.

Format: Paperback
Sound life story of America's greatest male tennis player, a man who dominated his sport during the early 1980's, carrying to this day, twenty-one years later, the highest winning percentage in tennis history. The inside stories are here of the great rivalries that pushed McEnroe to heights of on-court genius. In concentrating on McEnroe the athlete instead of McEnroe the person, what this books does wrong is it fails to ask the tough questions about its subject's on-court antics, his off-court misbehaviors (the man can really be a jerk) and the reports of drug abuse and domestic violence that dogged him late in his career. This is a pro-McEnroe book and that's fine, nothing wrong with writing favorably about your subject, but it lacks objectivity and secretly reveals something resembling hero worship on the part of its author.
