John McEnroe has such an animated voice that it would be difficult to imagine anyone other than him narrating his audiobook. His blunt account of his interests, perspectives and--yes, opinions--comes through loud and clear. The operative word is "loud." Occasionally, it sounds as if the former tennis great is yelling, which can at times be annoying but it's never boring. Much of the book centers on life off the courts--with his wife Patty Smyth, who narrates several sections; his art investments; his family; and more. One topic weaves into the next, and it's not overdone. Biography fans will enjoy this vantage of one of tennis' most colorful figures. M.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2017]
