    THIS BOOK IS UNBELIEVEABLY AWESOME!

    This is one of the best books I have ever read! I am a top junior and I typically do not like books based on true stories, but this book is a huge exception. As a player, this book motivated me in greater ways than ever before. Venus and Serena used to be my favorite players to the point where I just wanted them to win. Now, I feel like I know them and I begin biting my nails when they are in a tight match! Whether you are an avid sports fan, or you dislike sports entirely, you will become obsessed with Dave Rineberg's masterpiece. I highly recommend this to anybody and everybody. You will love it!

    Great Book!

    This book was so interesting I couldn't put it down. I had heard about this book a month ago but don't like to read tell-alls. This is more like a novel, a history lesson and a tennis clinic all rolled into one. Nice job to the author who gives a positive look at the controversial Williams family.It's a must read!!

    A Page Turner

    I had trouble putting this book down. It was great insight into how hard the Williams sisters worked to get where they are today and their father's influence. Also the dedication of a coach, Dave Rineberg, who really cared about them and their future. You feel the excitement and joy with their first big wins. Normally I read fiction and mysteries but this kept me turning pages as if I were reading a Grisham novel. A very well written book and even a tear jerker,at times for a first time author.

    Enjoyed reading

    I have watched a small amount of tennis in my life, but look forward to watching Venus and Serena play after reading this book. Dave Rineberg does an excellent job talking about his rollercoaster ride of life and how it takes him on a great journey with two wonderful people. Dave's love for tennis shines through. There is a great deal of emotion without being emotional. This is a must have even if you don't like tennis!

    Awesome Tell All

    This was a very interesting tell about how two sisters dedicated their lives to become tennis stars and how the influence of their father got them there. The quality of David Rinebergs book The Beeds Years is a step above the normal unauthorized biographies. I strongly recommend this to everyone.
