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.

Good but loud

But seriously is an interesting and insightful autobiography which documents John McEnroe’s later career. He comes over as a single minded individual who cares deeply for his family and I’m glad he has evidently found happiness with his wife Patti and their 6 children.

But his voice is very loud and very monotonous..and his delivery becomes rather wearing after a while.

However I admire John McEnroe tremendously, his playing and the way he has rebooted his career several times so I continued listening right to the end.

Interesting,but seriously?

Anything about John McEnroe would be interesting so if you like tennis and McEnroe in particular it's a must.Sorry John but I think a more professional narrator would have done a better job and maybe Johns lack of modesty would have helped but Johns humility when talking about Patty and his dad is commendable.
