Fifteen years after his massive bestseller Serious, John McEnroe is back and ready to talk.

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, breaking bread with his former on-court nemeses, getting scammed by an international art dealer, and raising a big family while balancing McEnroe-sized expectations?

But Seriously is a richly personal account, blending anecdote and reflection with razor sharp and brutally honest opinions. Wildly entertaining, very funny, surprisingly touching, and 100% McEnroe.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The follow up volume to 2002's best-selling Serious, and every bit as entertaining. McEnroe is just as brash and as opinionated as you might expect, but he has a saving grace: behind all the bluster, he seems to be a genuinely nice bloke - Marcus Berkmann, DAILY MAIL

The tennis legend and TV pundit is rarely short of an opinion, and here he sounds off on modern art, rock stars, Richard Branson's Necker Island, guitar playing, Donald Trump, beer, the BBC and Adam Sandler. Oh yes, and tennis - MAIL ON SUNDAY

McEnroe has forged a second career as an opinionated, well-informed and indeed pre-eminent commentator and analyst. But it should not be forgotten just how scintillating a player he was, especially on grass. For those with fond memories of those days, McEnroe provides some telling sketches of his old rivals - Nick Pitt, SUNDAY TIMES

He has proved an excellent commentator during big tournaments, as he'll remind us this fortnight at Wimbledon - Simon Kuper, THE SPECTATOR

McEnroe has established himself as perhaps the most distinctive voice in tennis punditry - Andrew Anthony, OBSERVER

The one-time enfant terrible of the Centre Court has not mellowed with age if his recent pronoucements on Serena Williams are any measurement - RTE GUIDE

Who can forget the shouty bad boy, infamous for his temper! Now a respected elder statesman of tennis, his fascinating memoir reveals all - BEST
