By A Customer on September 2, 1999
I only give it three stars cause most unauthorised biographies only deserve that and even less perhaps. This book if full of presumptions made about a person and her family that the author does not know. She is a fan, I will give her that but how she is then able to write all the unsubstantiated rumors she fills her book with makes me wander what sort of fan she is - obviously one who wants to make a lot of money. If she was really a fan she should have gone out of her way to win Steffi's favour and have Steffi consult on the book. From what I have read the Graf family and their associates went to great lengths to make it very difficult for Heady to write the book and the final result shows this.
Heady has depended on other peoples version of events. People who either don't really know the Graf's or have something to gain by making up wild rumors concerning Steffi and her family.
I am sure Heady had good intentions when starting out but all she has ended up with is a book full of speculation and and slander.
A real fan would have tried harder.........

I purchased this book while I was on Holidays in Jersey. I had been looking for a book about my favourite player for some time so I was thrilled when I spotted it in a shop. I started out reading it expecting it to be a very biased and favourable account of Steffi's career. I was therefore shocked with what I got but not altogether dissappionted. This book is unbiased and gives very detailed informationon all aspects of Steffi's life. Her wins are accurately portrayed and almost every win is mentioned. Also on the subject of her personal life I received a shock about what appears to be Steffi's indifference to everyone but herself,but, this opinion is balanced when the author lists how Steffi has in the past gone out of her way to help people. The author also goes out of her way to show that Steffi's seeming indifference is a result of her hard life.

So all in all this is one of the most detailed and best biographies of anyone that I have ever read. The fact that the author is unbiased stops the book from falling into the trap which many biographies fall in to, that of showing the subject of the book in a rose coloured light.
