JOHN MCENROE But Seriously
Legendary tennis star and expert commentator John McEnroe’s long-awaited follow-up to the bestselling Serious. Over a decade after his international No.1 bestseller Serious, John McEnroe is back a nd ready to talk once again. Since his hit book, he’s maintained a huge presence as a commentator at Wimbledon and other Grand Slam tournaments. He has continued to compete on the court, winning the ATP Champions Tour a record six times, and has played in charity events around the globe. More surprising are the calls from TV producers, inviting John to riff on his famous hot temper in cult shows such as 30 Rock and Curb Your Enthusiasm – and his little-known passion for American contemporary art. In following McEnroe’s personal struggle to reinvent himself, confronting a few demons along the way, But Seriously blends memoir and motivational writing. The result is a personal odyssey, written with the signature style that has made John McEnroe an enduring cultural figure and icon. John McEnroe is a former World No.1 professional tennis player. He has won seven Grand Slam singles titles, nine Grand Slam men’s doubles titles and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title. The 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.
