By John McEnroe
Legendary tennis star and expert commentator John McEnroe's long-awaited follow-up to the Sunday Times and international bestseller Serious.
Fifteen years after his massive bestseller Serious, John McEnroe is back and ready to talk.
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, breaking bread with his former on-court nemeses, getting scammed by an international art dealer, and raising a big family while balancing McEnroe-sized expectations?
But Seriously is a richly personal account, blending anecdote and reflection with razor sharp and brutally honest opinions. This is the sports book of the year: wildly entertaining, very funny, surprisingly touching, and 100% McEnroe.
John McEnroe is a former World No. 1 professional tennis player. He won seven Grand Slam singles titles, nine Grand Slam men's doubles titles, and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title. He is the author of the bestselling memoir SERIOUS. John is a father of six, an art collector, musician and businessman. He continues to be a senior tennis player and a hugely respected BBC commentator during Wimbledon. He lives in New York City.
