5.0 out of 5 stars The Hardback Book is worth it, don't think about getting it on the Kindle, 16 Nov. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Andy Murray: Seventy-Seven: My Road to Wimbledon Glory (Hardcover)
Andy's Road to Wimbledon Glory is an excellent book covering the last two years of his success with the important Olympics 2012, US Open 2012 and Wimbledon 2013 wins all given their own chapter. Andy also covers in detail that last wimbledon game and gives us an insight into his emotional response.

The book has an amazing array of colour photographs and owning a physical copy is a must. Do not take any notice of the one star reviews, which all relate to people who went for the kindle rather than the physical copy and bear absolutely no relation to the content of the book. The book is fantastic and it deserves more high stars.

This lightweight read is okay as (possibly) an addendum to other books about the Scot, and there are already many, by himself as well, on the market.
But if you're looking for an in depth memoir/autobiography, look elsewhere.
It appears that someone (a "ghost" writer, a journalist hired by his own '77' business enterprise or by Simon Fuller) has put together pieces and clips of English language papers, TV comments and tabloids in one folder: his dreams, the mouth ulcers, Dunblane, Mum, brother, his many managers and agents, his cats, girlfriend...
The story is seriously thin on meaningful content...
Then, is there any reason for this release?
....Christmas is around the corner and it is not bad idea to catch up on momentum and bank on the season market!

After I read it, I couldnt help but feel that the book was written in a hurry by the "ghost writer"..
Nothing new mentioned, that hadn't been written in the papers before.
Kind of letdown.

Is Neil Harman the real writer of this book?
The same of Court Confidential: Inside The World Of Tennis and Wimbledon 2013 ?
The tennis correspondent of The Times?

It doesn't make any difference if the real writer is Neil Harman or another journalist/author.
The true thing is that there is no real value to it.
It's only a Christmas market fad.
Don't waste money on it, unless your child needs a last minute, second-hand buy to fill the stocking...

I am not crazy about this book..a new PR instrument to keep his popularity up, especially in his above 60 female devotees department...
He can't keep going on and on and on and on about Wimbledon !
Now it has become so embarrassing to watch him play...
He has been throwing tantrums and alienating people his whole overrated career. So why should the situation today be any different? Unfortunately for the lucky Scot, not every tournament results in a fluke. And even when painstaking efforts are taken, things rarely go exactly according to plan.
We are tired to see "the Milli Vanilli of Tennis" - as he has been named - to act as a drama queen, abusing his huge team and to make silly headlines on British media, every single day..
He is trying so hard to keep the spotlight on himself! The other day it was about his announcement of new coach..
The problem was that the April fool prank was so carefully placed, that almost everyone missed it entirely and thought the announcement about the opening of 5 stars hotel was the actual scam.
He is trying so hard to keep the spotlight on himself!
I get the impression the Scot struggles to build long term great relationships with coaches...Prior to his partnership with Lendl, Murray had worked with the likes of Leon Smith, Mark Petchey, Brad Gilbert, Miles Maclagan and Alex Corretja.
He's an arrogant individual who thinks it's ok to roar like an animal and rip off his shirt after winning a tournament.

Well, the other day it was the 'new coach' April fools prank.
Today it is that he is a doubt for the Davis Cup tie against Italy as the dour Scot battles a stomach bug!
As always, he is a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in argyle.

Another excuse, in case the patriotic hero loses...

Bad back, bad weather, bad court, bad stomach = bad excuses!
