I found this hardcover book on a bargain shelf, at a grocery store, for only $1.75. It's worth its weight in gold! I'd never heard of Monica Seles, but her story is amazing! From her happy childhood, to American immigrant, to #1 World Class tennis star at age 16, to tragedy of being stabbed by one of her opponent's fans, being immediately forgotten by her "friends" in the tennis world, losing her father/manager to cnacer,losing the case against the man who assaulted her, to depression and binge eating, to making a full comeback. This is not just a book on tennis and world travel, but Self Mastery: Not from the outside in: All of the diets,fitness trainers and gaurds she hired to keep her away from the fridge at night, but healing from the inside out: discovering her true identity, forgiveness, and self worth, from deep within, where it really counts.
