Format: Paperback
The book is not well written. There are huge gaps, little of Evert's sense of humor, or the bite that Navratilova's book has. However, this biography does offer insight into Evert's youth, her upbringing, her break from her parents, and her domination of tennis in the mid to late 70s. Neil Amdur should have "tighten" the strings, net, whatever, to get the book under control, and also told Chris to let her guard down when assessing opponents such as Navratilova or Mandlikova. However, Evert's book is valuable, readable, and contains her records at grand slams ,Federation Cup, until 1981.

Format: Paperback
I was stunned by this book. Many of the sentences were words put together in a such a way that absolutely NOTHING was communicated by them. I must have said to myself "huh?" about 100 times while reading this book. There's no flow, no point and nothing interesting in it. If you want to read an interesting book about women's tennis, read Martina Navratilova's book instead. I own both and believe me, the difference is night and day. I always respected Chrissie so much for her demeanor on court, and the way she has conducted herself in life. It's a GOOD THING I don't judge her on this book. It's the worst book I've ever read. Utterly meaningless, and the way she tries to give it meaning by saying something about reaching for your goals in the last paragraph is hilariously missing the way too little way too late mark. It's so bad it's funny and that's the truth.

Chris Evert is an inspiration to all tennis players and spectators. I love to watch her play tennis. She is a great champion.
