A Champion's Mind is the auto-biography of Pete Sampras, who is one of the top tennis players of all-time; Sampras is still (in 2009) the only player to have been ranked #1 in the world for six consecutive years, and the holder of the second-most wins of Grand Slams (the highest ranked world tennis tournaments) after Roger Federer. The book reflects well Sampras' self-description, that is, it is a solid, no-frills account of a super-consistent tennis career. In particular, there aren't many surprises in the story, and the writing style is average. One of the nice questions Sampras asks and attempts to answer is: how to maintain a top professional level for a long period of time? Overall, a nice read in between airplanes, but not more.
