A terrific read, full of interesting insight, and I really get the sense of how Andy joined the tennis greats . No plucky British losers here. Liked the the fact that the book is a great length for a train journey or short flight.

A well written (and very timely !) portrayal of a very good player who improved different aspects of his game to become a great player and double Slam winner. Not that much new content for close followers of the man but the author does a good job of telling the story. All Murray wants to do is keep improving and winning and those are certainly good values in life......

A fabulous insight into Andy Murray. This has really got me in the mood for Wimbledon. I recommend this for any tennis fans. Not too long either but filled full of insightful analysis.

Andy Murray is without doubt the best British tennis player of the past half century. How he managed to rise to the top is the topic of this short book. And it is quite short - although the title suggests that it should take up 90 minutes of your time, I polished it off in about 30. Written after Murray won the Olympic gold medal and US Open but before he won Wimbledon, Hugh MacDonald takes us through Murray's childhood and career so far. There isn't anything particularly new or stunning that wasn't known before, but it is a very reasonable and readable account of Murray's rise to the top.

Entertaining read which is difficult to put down! Highly recommend to any tennis enthusiast or budding junior sportsperson! as this read leaves little doubt as to the sacrifices, hardwork & detail that goes into winning

This is a booklet rather than a book which is reflected in the low price. It's a well-written, enjoyable read giving some interesting insights.
