About

Jimmy Connors is a working-man's hero, a people's champion who tore the cover off the country-club gentility of his sport. A renegade from the wrong side of the tracks, he broke the rules with a radically aggressive style of play and bad-boy antics. Yet his enduring dedication to his craft kept him among the top ten best players in the world for sixteen years straight - five of those years at number one. Presiding over an era that saw tennis attract a new breed of passionate fans, from cops to tycoons, Connors transformed the game forever with his two-handed backhand, his two-fisted lifestyle, and his epic rivalries.

The complete, uncensored story of his life and career, The Outsider is a grand slam of a memoir written by a man once again at the top of his game - as feisty, unvarnished, and defiant as ever.
