Publisher's Summary

Read by John McEnroe and Patty Smyth.
He is one of the most controversial sportsmen in history and a legend of Open Era tennis. But after reaching the top of his game - what came next? A decade after his international number-one best seller Serious, John McEnroe is back and ready to talk.
Now the undisputed elder statesman of tennis, McEnroe has won over his critics as a matchless commentator and analyst at Wimbledon and other Grand Slam tournaments - with outspoken views on the modern game and its top players. He has continued to compete on the court, winning the ATP Champions Tour a record six times, and has travelled the globe to play in charity events.
More surprising have been 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 then there is his longstanding passion for American contemporary art.
In But Seriously John McEnroe confronts his demons and reveals his struggle to reinvent himself from ex-champion to father, broadcaster and author. The result is a richly personal account, blending anecdote and reflection in an inspirational reevaluation of what it means to be - and stay - successful.

Great listen for fans of the player and the man

Everyone knows John McEnroe, or thinks they do, so this is a terrific insight into his life and passions read by the man himself.
I found myself completely addicted to the book and having grown up with him and Borg it was wonderful to relive those battles and also get the inside story from Mac’s perspective.
He writes and reads very well and comes across as a fully rounded human being and not just a caricature of his early days.
Just don’t ask him for a selfie!
