Publisher Description

John McEnroe stunned the tennis elite when he came out of nowhere to make the Wimbledon semifinals at the age of eighteen—and just a few years later, he was ranked number one in the world. You Cannot Be Serious is McEnroe at his most personal, a no-holds-barred examination of Johnny Mac, the kid from Queens, and his “wild ride” through the world of professional tennis at a boom time when players were treated like rock stars. Here he candidly explores the roots of his famous on-court explosions; his ambivalence toward the sport that made him famous; his adventures (and misadventures) on the road; his views of colleagues from Connors to Borg to Lendl; his opinions of contemporary tennis—and his current roles as husband, father, senior tour player, and often-controversial commentator—in a “bracing new serve-and-volley autobiography” (The Boston Globe).

You can't be serious

Good read. Mac is brutally honest. I disliked him in his early years, but he has grown on me.
I still think all former number one tennis pros are super egomaniacs. Addicted to attention and adulation.
This book, as well as Sampras' and Connors proves that.
Fun to read.

Great insight into a complicated man

I thoroughly enjoyed listen to the man talk about the man. I always knew he was complicated but never knew the 'inside story' until now. Great read!!!
