Publisher's Summary

A compelling, provocative audiobook about a father, his son, and the cost of early excellence in our achievement-obsessed society.

The third audiobook by New York Times best-selling author Douglas Brunt, Trophy Son tells the story of tennis prodigy Anton Stratis, from an isolated childhood of grueling practice under the eye of his obsessed father to his dramatic rise through the intensely competitive world of professional tennis. Written with an insider knowledge of the tennis circuit, Trophy Son explores a young man striving to find balance in his life, navigating moral compromises, performance-enhancing drugs, and the elusive lure of wealth and celebrity. From Wimbledon and the US Open to the off-court life of elite players, Anton finds exhilarating highs and desolate lows as he searches for an identity apart from his achievements.

I really tried. I could not get into this one. I am sorry. I will try again another day.

Not a fan

I didn't really cede for the book or the story. The characters were underdeveloped and the story was underwhelming.

Excellent work and story.... Game Set MATCH

Telling a story that transcends tennis. Family, commitment and desire for excellence all come into play

Book is relatively boring and I did not like the reader

I might have liked this better if someone else was reading it. Overall, I thought it was pretty boring. You'd be better off reading books by Agassi and McEnroe.

Predictable

Huge tennis fan here... kind of disappointed in the predictable plot and some of the insinuations made me think Nadal, Ferrer and Murray will be filing suit!
