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.
