Dude, I'm sure it is. Like when his parents got divorced, it's tough on anyone regardless of how much money you have. But no one wants to hear (or read about) a multimillionaire complain about a tough life unless you're a paid psychiatrist. At the end of the day, you can treat yourself to an expensive wardrobe or a nice vacation when you're feeling a bit blue; you never have to experience the worry of where next month's rent is coming from. Other people who get down on themselves don't have such an option. Everyone's got problems but it's good to have the cognizance to realize when your problems are smaller than those of other people.

Andre book was interesting and entertaining. Lot of tennis talked, inside info like personalities of different players, their behaviour etc. Bolletieri academy, childhood drill with crazy father, lot of personal info (hair, drugs...) but it was all written by grown up man.

Rafa book was... boring (to say it nicely). It was like when 10yo gets a homework to talk about his family. Family was like 80% (history of Mallorca, what are the Mallorcans like and why, how is Tony bad but he still love him because he is part of family. Only once he said to Toni he did not like his approach and he was feeling really bad. Lot of talking about his knee. Tennis is like 20%, that was better but still not like Agassi book. Funny part was when he was talking about the shot making, that when he has like 60% chance to hit a winner, he does not go for it and he waits until he has like 90%. No wonder you have to rewind 10 Rafa matches to make one minute highlights...

I wonder what tennis related pun he'll use for his book--or maybe he'll be like Rafa and just go with something generic like Roger: My Story
