A collection of Bodo's articles, but not in chronological order, which was slightly disappointing as it would have been easier to relate to articles that way. However, that doesn't take anything away from the fact that the articles themselves are well-written. Easy to recommend, especially at the price of the Kindle edition

This book on the 'Mighty Fed' by Peter Bodo gives some unique insights into the great man himself including Roger's playing style, his greatest rivals, and much more. This book will undoubtedly appeal to Roger's fans, and tennis fans in general.

It became extremely boring for me I am afraid. Compared to Rafa Nadal's biography - there is no comparison! (Roger Federer by Peter Bodo)

I read pretty much everything about Roger Federer. I expected more from this - it turns out that I am not a fan of Bodo's writing style.

HASH(0xa11bc030) out of 5 stars You gotta really like Federer 5 Feb. 2013
By Klipspringer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In the interests of full disclosure, let me say that (a) I am a rabid fan of tennis, (b) I am an even more rabid fan of Roger Federer, and (c) I generally like Peter Bodo's writing and analysis, especially since the number of sportswriters these days who truly understand and care about the game of tennis can be counted on one hand's fingers. So, that gives you a frame of reference relative to my rather lukewarm feeling about this book.

To be fair, Federer plays things so close to the vest, no writer is ever going to have any real insights or juicy tidbits on the man, as opposed to athletes who parade their personal lives for all to see. Bodo does provide his usual intelligent analysis of Federer's past matches, both victories and defeats, and attempts to peer into his psyche as possible. No one, though, has been able to crack Federer's well constructed and private facade.

The book is a compilation of Bodo essays over several year's of Federer's career, thus, it does result in an interesting timeline and picture of the player's achievements, successes, and occasional failures over the years. But, if you're expecting any real "dirt" or "inside information" on Roger, you won't find it here. Or anywhere else, for that matter. But hey, for $2.99 as a Kindle edition, you don't have a lot to lose.

Bodo's e-book "The Courts of Babylon" actually is a lot more interesting to read, covering some of the great characters, in-your-face rivalries and excesses from the "golden age" of tennis.

So, don't expect any great revelations about Federer here. Can't blame Bodo too much, for until Roger himself writes a "tell-all" autobiography, which he never will, Federer remains the game's greatest players, as well as one of its greatest enigmas.
