HASH(0x96ad81b0) out of 5 stars Strongly Recommended for Tennis Fans 3 Dec. 2004
By Rick Spell - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having read and really enjoyed "Winning Ugly" I decided to give this book a try even though I had read a review stating that it was geared toward applying his principals to business. I did not find that to be the case at all. Yes, he did give tennis stories and then close with how that story might apply in other's business life. But what I found in this book is an inside look at a talented coach and his relationship with his player. And given that his players were Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick, it's an interesting story for tennis fans. I've never been a big Andre Agassi fan having watched him tank matches at the tournament at my club as well as some of his early antics. And could we please get the announcers to quit talking about him running up a hill as a statement of his great fitness. However, I do have a great appreciation for his talent. From reading this book I have a greater appreciation of Andre the man. He's grown from an undisciplined talent who was lucky to be in the right place with the right talent to an intelligent quality individual. And in some respects you have to give Brad some credit although Gilbert is not attempting to take any.

Although over 1/2 the book seems to mention Andre, there is quite a bit about Andy. It is interesting to hear him compare their different approaches to tennis and life in general.

Overall, I would recommend this book for any tennis fan. I do not think you will be disappointed. Another must read from Brad Gilbert.

I read AA's Open, so I was interested in getting more wise input from Brad. This book is a great story, but I was hoping for more of the pithy wisdom remarks that Andre attributed to Brad in Open. I thought Brad's book would be full of them, but it was more story. I did enjoy it though. Brad tells a story well, and it is easy to read. I like his honesty and the way he is humble and thankful. My expectations were different, that's all. Still glad I read it. Thanks for writing it Brad - if you ever read this. Thank you.

HASH(0x9487b78c) out of 5 stars I've Got Your Back is a great book 20 Sept. 2004
By Forehand - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've Got Your Back by Brad Gilbert is a great book. It was compelling, and well written. Gilbert gives you a look inside the proffesional tennis world that is humurous as well as fascinating. Keep in mind, this is not Winning Ugly 2, it is it's own book with a more personal style. This time instead of Brad Gilbert's technical advice, you get to know Brad Gilbert. I think that that is the best part about the book.

HASH(0x95a1dfd8) out of 5 stars The Sequel that Bombs 31 July 2005
By Haz - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This was a bit of a disappointment. First, if you were hoping for a coach's principles on leadership in business, go back to the "Business" section of the bookstore. I understand that by targeting the business world Brad can increase his book sales beyond the sports junkies of the world, but in relating his coaching to other life applications, well...he leaves a bit of a gap.

I really enjoyed "Winning Ugly". In fact, as a tennis player, I found it loaded with great tips (and it even improved my game). But this one is loaded with Brad's "good ole days from the tour" drivel that is certainly is out of date and more than a bit tedious.

I love both books from Brad Guilbert (Winning Ugly and I've Got Your Back).
Interesting inside of the tennis circus coaching.
I read it in two nights.
