But Seriously Synopsis

Over a decade after his international number one bestseller SERIOUS, John McEnroe is back and ready to talk once again. Since his hit book, he's maintained a huge presence as a commentator at Wimbledon and other Grand Slam tournaments. He has continued to compete on the court, winning the ATP Champions Tour a record six times, and has played in charity events around the globe. More surprising are the calls from TV producers, inviting John to riff on his famous hot temper in cult shows such as 30 ROCK and CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM - and his little-known passion for American contemporary art. The beloved, controversial and respected tennis legend reveals even more from his life and career, with the signature style that has made John McEnroe the enduring cultural figure and icon he is. As part of a tiny elite of top-ranking tennis players, John McEnroe has lived and experienced what very few people could ever imagine. His status as an elder statesman of international tennis is undisputed, but what of the challenges beyond the court? How did he succeed in coming to terms with life as an ex-champion, and adjust to his new vocation as a broadcaster and gallerist? In following McEnroe's personal struggle to reinvent himself, confronting a few demons along the way, BUT SERIOUSLY blends memoir and motivational writing in a manner which both disquiets and reassures in the author's original and unadulterated voice. The result is a personal odyssey, a mixture of anecdote and reflection which re-evaluates the meaning of success.
