Venus Envy

As i was walking through Barnes and Noble today buying summer reading books, I saw the new edition of "VENUS ENVY" and picked up a copy. So far it looks very good, and it focuses on many different players. I read a little bit of it and I already find the "behind the scenes" gossip or talk very fascinating and often hilarious. There are big sections in the book about Martina, Venus, Serena, Mary, Anna, Lindsay and a lot more players. You really get to know the players from this book. Anybody else read this book?? What are your comments??

I think he should write a new one called Venus and Serena envy and update the entire book and tell us who is spreading what gossip in the locker room.

How big is the update...more than a few pages??? I read the book last year on a flight to LA and thought it was hilarious, esp the parts about Anna K and her new bra line.

I will read the additions the next time I am in the bookstore, put the book back, and post a summary. The book is so out of date now.

Has anyone seen that fake review on amazon about this book?
