Longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award

What happens when you find you have exceptional children? Do you panic? Put your head in the sand? Or risk everything and jump in head first?

As mother to tennis champions Jamie and Andy Murray, Scottish National Coach, coach of the Fed Cup, and general all-round can-do woman of wonder, Judy Murray is the ultimate role model for believing in yourself and reaching out to ambition.

As a parent, coach, leader, she is an inspiration who has revolutionised British tennis.

From the soggy community courts of Dunblane to the white heat of Centre Court at Wimbledon, Judy Murray's extraordinary memoir charts the challenges she has faced, from desperate finances and growing pains to entrenched sexism. We all need a story of `yes we can' to make us believe great things are possible. This is that story.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This truly is the inside story of Andy and Jamie's remarkable rise. Compelling...This is a positive, life-affirming view.' - Alan Patullo, Scotland on Sunday 

'A cracking book' - Chris Evans breakfast show, BBC Radio 2

'A fascinating and incriminating document. As well as mapping out the travails of tennis parenthood, it offers a window into generations of patronising, belittling attitudes to women in sport... She should be considered a national treasure' - Simon Briggs, Daily Telegraph 

'Judy's account is honest and open... She is passionate about getting children into sport...Judy Murray has plenty to feel proud about.' - Scotsman 

'Quite simply, she is inspirational, passionate and great fun' - Kirsty Wark, Observer 

'A life both defined and enriched by tennis, which reveals a woman whose own achievements are no less impressive than those of her superstar sons' - Radio Times
