Publisher's Summary

'It was the day I put the tennis balls into the tumble dryer that I realised I thought about tennis a little bit differently.'

What happens when you find you have exceptional children? Do you panic? Put your head in the sand? Or risk everything and jump in headfirst?

As mother to tennis champions Jamie and Andy Murray, Scottish national coach, coach of the Fed Cup and general all-round can-do woman of wonder, Judy Murray is the ultimate role model for believing in yourself and reaching out to ambition. As a parent, coach and leader, she is an inspiration who has revolutionised British tennis. From the soggy community courts of Dunblane to the white heat of Centre Court at Wimbledon, Judy Murray's extraordinary memoir charts the challenges she has faced, from desperate finances and growing pains to entrenched sexism.

We all need a story of 'yes we can' to make us believe great things are possible. This is that story.

So interesting

This was the first autobiography that I have read/listened to. I am an Andy Murray fan so I was interested in hearing Judy's story.

I loved it! I couldn't stop listening to it. She is an amazing women and I had no idea what as a family they gone through and achieved to get there.

I throughly recommend it.

Great coach, ambassador and mum.

I read this book as I've always played tennis. I expected to enjoy the insights into pro-tennis, and to hear how 2 brothers managed to get to be top players. I hadn't anticipated that I would enjoy even more than that, the story of a truly inspirational woman who has fought to get her boys to where they are and also given so much back. Well written, well read, an ace.

A lovely and insightful story

I thought the book was a real insight into the Murray lives. As a private family it is often hard to understand them from their public profile so this has enlightened me as to why they are the way they are? I loved every minute of the book.

Excellent read

This is a most interesting and informative read with applicability to all.

Inspirational due to Jamie and Andy’s performances but also the background contributions of Judy herself.
