    I read this book as someone who read the first instalment of John McEnroe s memoirs when they came out around 15 years ago and which I really enjoyed This sequel deals with what John McEnroe has been doing in the past 15 20 years of his life since his tennis playing career came to an end What emerges is the picture of a man who seems content with life and not so prone to being bad tempered, as per the popular stereotype But what also emerges is someone who has never entirely managed to fill the void left behind when his playing career ended Here McEnroe talks about his other interests and his work, most notably his career as a tennis commentator and analyst for various networks for which he is widely and rightly regarded as one of the most articulate and respected television sports broadcasters in the world His knowledge and passion for art will also be of interest to some You do get the impression though from the way McEnroe speaks in the book that there are some things he would have liked to have done in these past 15 years which have not quite worked out, particularly branching out into other areas of television or even acting This is still a really enjoyable read and it is particularly amusing when McEnroe talks about how he gets on with 1 or 2 of his old rivals from tennis these days, especially Lendl and Connors People that want to read about McEnroe the tennis player will prefer the 1st book, but for those that want to read about McEnroe the man and how he may have mellowed with age, this is the book that will deal with that.

    Having already read John s first autobiography and enjoyed it, I couldn t wait to read this one, I thoroughly enjoyed this too, I like John s writing voice If you re a McEnroe fan or even if you re not particularly a fan it s a good read.

    I love McEnroe but he loves himself just a bit too much in this book.Not enough about tennis too much about all the celebrities he knows, endless name dropping etc and at times, when he talks about business dealings, extremely dull Disappointed.

  4. A Garthwaite A Garthwaite says:

    McEnroe s unique talent comes across in this enjoyable read He was top of his sport and his self confidence in other aspects of life is also evident His love of his children is very evident and there s plenty of tongue in cheek references within the stories he tells We get a good insight into his thinking as he contemplates the changes in his post competitive career but there s little doubt tennis is always at the heart of everything he does.

    I enjoyed this book but there were parts of no interest Name dropping, acting and buying pictures is irrelevant He is a brilliant player and a stimulating commentator I was surprised that he thought he was a better doubles player titles I am sure he has lots of anecdotes about doubles to fill another book His style is extremely honest.
