    1. Venus and Serena are two of my favorite tennis players to watch. Tennis is one of my passions as well. So as I know tennis is not an as famous sports as say basketball, baseball, soccer etc. I was a little surprised to find a couple of tennis bios. I'm not going to say to much about this book in case you want to read it. It's about Venus and Serena's journey of becoming professional tennis players. To me as a tennis player it was really inspiring.


    2. Did not feel the author did enough to capture the true essence of two ladies, who in so many respects are larger than life. Was left wanting. More of a chronological list of their accomplishments, and somewhat of a rather limited, albeit obscure collage of their lives.


    3. I really enjoyed reading this, which is saying something as I'm not really into autobiographies! Started out slow, got more interesting and then finished with a jolt, I would recommend reading this if you are a fan like I am or you don't like them, but otherwise probably not the book for you.
