Pentru cine e curios, are ocazia sa afle din carte cum a inceput cariera celor doi. Inceputul carierei lui Ilie Nastase ar putea fi definit de trei cuvinte: palme, ciocolata si bani. Cam astea au fost motivatiile lui si se pare ca pana la urma au functionat. Dupa cum a precizat chiar el in mai multe randuri, el a ajuns la tenis din intamplare.

Having read memories of, perhaps the greatest sports journalist in Romania, is a small fortune in our lives. This man recalls the greatest moments in sports that every fan should know about. This book recalls the figures of the greatest tennis player Romania ever had: Ilie Nastase and Ion Tiriac. It is an easy read, funny at times and accurate.

Absolutely brilliant book for a tennis lover :) what i loved the most is the style in which it was written... Such sports articles filled by poetry and talent, and what's more, they were written by none others than Ilie Nastase and Ion Tiriac. Wonderful read!
