    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.

    jeffrey says: "Worthwhile--but shoulda had Conners reading it"
    "Very interesting story!"

    If you could sum up The Outsider in three words, what would they be?

    Detailed 70's-80's History.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I learned so much about what led up to the Open Era and how big tennis was in the US during Jimmy's fame! I wish I would have been more into tennis when the US seemed to dominate the men's singles!


    Have you listened to any of Rich Orlow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other Rich Orlow performances, but I thought at times that "Jimmy Connors" was actually the speaker! I was definitely focused!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess we'll have to wait for Jimmy's next book to find out what he is going to do next!
