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, confronting his former on-court nemeses, getting scammed by an international art dealer, and raising a big family while balancing McEnroe-sized expectations?In But Seriously, John McEnroe confronts his demons and reveals his struggle to reinvent himself from champion and tennis legend to father, broadcaster, and author.

      • content: John McEnroe has such an animated voice that it would be difficult to imagine anyone other than him narrating his audiobook. His blunt account of his interests, perspectives and--yes, opinions--comes through loud and clear. The operative word is "loud." Occasionally, it sounds as if the former tennis great is yelling, which can at times be annoying but it's never boring. Much of the book centers on life off the courts--with his wife Patty Smyth, who narrates several sections; his art investments; his family; and more. One topic weaves into the next, and it's not overdone. Biography fans will enjoy this vantage of one of tennis' most colorful figures. M.B. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
