Hey guys,

I am aware I posted a thread a few weeks back noting this but it is just a pure reminder. Andy Murray: Champion is out today and by what I have read in the sample chapter it seems like a pretty detailed book. It documents his life from Dunblane to the US Open 2012.

I looked in the major book stores but didnt find it. I wonder though, how much of the book will make good reading if you have read "Coming of Age" ?  I mean, it must repeat some of his life story.

I think I'm gonna miss out on buying this one. I prefer autobiographies and I will wait for his next one to be released.

While I too prefer autobiographies,and very much hope that Andy will release another one someday,I think we'll be waiting a long while for it.In fact,I could be wrong,but I can't see him releasing another one before retirement.

I read it on iBooks on my iPad.

I got the book today in hardback and so far I am half way through Chapter 1. It's a short easy read. 241 pages and about size 16 font.

The book is really detailed too and Hodgkinson doesn't fail to miss any points from what I've read.

I've just started reading mine.    I am enjoying it although I don't  think there is anything I didn't
know, so far. but somehow it brings it all together.

I've not started reading my copy yet but I've flicked through it. It pains me to say but I've already read Pippa Middleton's name TWICE. Arghhhhhhhh

Page 173
Lendl removing his headgear wouldn't have helped to improve Murray's game, but the arrival of Middleton and several thousand Americans did something for the Briton.

The book mentions that she is a friend of the Federer family.  What has that got to do with Andy?

I'm sooooooooooooooo sick of seeing this woman. Every single time the cameras focus on her I want to smash my TV.

You pick up quite a lot of information with a flick IR.   My flicks consist of looking at the pictures!!!

Well, I have to say I went back and found that specific bit. Just to show how pointless the mention of this woman is.

I've read a few paragraphs from different chapters.

I'm sure it won't surprise anyone but the England joke is mentioned AGAIN. Yep, that never gets old.

Think I'll wait till A. retires.
Agree with IonaRed, any mention of Pippa Middleton makes me want to vomit
