Publisher's Summary

John McEnroe's long-awaited follow-up to his best seller.

He is one of the most controversial and beloved athletes in history, a tennis legend and a volcanic, mesmerizing presence. But after reaching the top of his game - what came next? Fifteen years after his international number-one best seller You Cannot Be Serious, John McEnroe is back and ready to talk.

Now the undisputed elder statesman of tennis, McEnroe has won over his critics as a brilliant commentator at the US Open, Wimbledon, and other Grand Slam tournaments - with outspoken views on the modern game, its top players, and the world of 21st-century sport and celebrity. 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-size 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. The result is a richly personal account, blending anecdote and reflection with razor sharp and brutally honest opinions, all in McEnroe's signature style. This is the sports book of the year: wildly entertaining, very funny, surprisingly touching, and 100 percent McEnroe.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Great read"

    I liked everything except when he picked on men's doubles and the Bryan brothers, then cried about them beating him and Patrick when they so deserved it and he would have done the same thing, I actually watch that match at Madison Square and it was pretty cool to see the payback that was going on little did I know at the time why

    "But Seriously Enjoyable"

    McEnroe's But Seriously is truly a wonderful book. He mixes tennis with life lessons into a beautiful concoction of storytelling. Funny, emotional, truthful and revealing, each page was as they say a movable feast.

    "Bland"

    John was good narrator. Book could of discussed more of his earlier career and first marriage. He explained well how good his current marriage has been and he's done good job with 6 kids.
    John did good job of putting family first and gets what life is all about,regardless of his fame.
    Expected more stories for how long he's been in the limelight.
