What a crazy life it has been for Richard Williams.

Mr. Williams deserves credit for what he has accomplished in his life for himself and his family. He had a very meager start in life but managed to nurture and raise two of the most amazing tennis players in the world. I may not agree with all of his choices, but the results speak for themselves.

Biography of Richard Williams that describes his life as a father and tennis coach of Vinus and Serena Williams. The book also describes his struggle with race that started with him growing up in heavily racist South, through young adulthood in Chicago and a father in California and Florida. The book is from Richard's perspective and a lot of his life is omitted here. Some of the stories also are a little bit questionable. Other than that is is a great read that has a lot of sad racial history, a lot on parenting and tennis. Good read!
