By Andi
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I wanted to understand Andy Murray better - see beyond what I know from the media. Let's face it, he is not really Britain's darling though somehow I couldn't put my finger on why not. This book uses his US Open victory as a frame and works through his life from early days to the final moment, the Grand Slam triumph. The book analyses his sporting and personal life and is dotted with anecdotes which for me has brought out the real Andy Murray nicely ... a good guy with a fierce drive to succeed and a terrible TV interview presence. The book is well written (Hodgkinson knows what he is doing...I remember reading his work when he was the Telegraph's tennis correspondent) and pages turn very easily. Well worth a read for any Tennis fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best sports story for a long time 10 Dec 2012
By paul
Format:Hardcover
Reading this book gave me an insight into Andy Murray's world I never knew about. From early struggles to becoming the first British male to win a Grand Slam in 75 years, this book is a revelation. A real absolute page turner. Anyone not a Murray fan, soon will be, when they read this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Readable 19 Aug 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read it and did enjoy it but would have liked more depth to the writing. Particularly in the later chapters, it became rather bland. I also found the time scale quite difficult.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great informative read. 29 Dec 2012
By moodo
Format:Hardcover
Was worried this had been rushed out to cash in on Andy's success in the US Open but it is a thoroughly well written book. The US Open frames the book but it s full of really informative and interesting facts and events. Written in a great style the pages flash by. Really enjoyable and all credit to Mark Hodgkinson for producing such a great read. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Murray (a true) Champion 5 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great read from start to finish. You felt that you were on the journey with him, the highs and the lows. I would recommend this book to anyone who has even the slightest interest in tennis, you won't be disappointed. You will come away with a better understanding of Andy the man. He hasn't had an easy ride but won through in the end. TRUELY A CHAMPION.
