    In The Outsider, Connors tells the complete, uncensored story of his life and career, setting the record straight about his formidable mother, Gloria; his very public romance with America's sweetheart Chris Evert; his famous opponents, including Björn Borg, John McEnroe, Arthur Ashe, Ivan Lendl, and Rod Laver; his irrepressible co-conspirators Ilie Nastase and Vitas Gerulaitis; and his young nemesis Andre Agassi.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the game of Tennis. I never played competitive Tennis and I found the story and history interesting. That history has helped me appreciate the game more today.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how Jimmy wrote the story which is conversational. I imagine myself sitting down in a bar asking questions of Jimmy and he telling me about his life. I enjoyed that very much.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    An honest life.


    Any additional comments?

    I understand Jimmy Connors much more after reading this book. He is honest and unapologetic which is great in an autobiography. I read Open by Agassi and enjoyed that book as well but what this book has that Open didn't is the history of the game and how the game was played and developed and Jimmy did a great job giving me that history.
