"In this spirited account, Billie Jean King details her life's journey to find her true self. She recounts her groundbreaking tennis career--six years as the top-ranked woman in the world, twenty Wimbledon championships, thirty-nine grand-slam titles, and her watershed defeat of Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes." She poignantly recalls the cultural backdrop of those years and the profound impact on her worldview from the women's movement, the assassinations and anti-war protests of the 1960s, the civil rights movement, and, eventually, the LGBTQ+ rights movement"--… (mais)

I think this is an excellent history of women's sports and the importance of Title IX as well as the importance and value of women activists. ( )

I appreciated learning about King's life before turning pro, but that part of the book lagged a little for me. My favorite parts of the book were the accounts of the first decade or two of the WTA, and the accounts of its formation. I loved the sense of camaraderie among the players. I wonder if that still exists today. I have to admit, I liked reading about her friendship with Elton John--it seems like a true friendship. ( )

Some parts of the book are highly engaging like the Battle of the Sexes. Other parts are quite repetitive. The last couple chapters were just a summary of life in 2020-2021 and weren’t particularly unique to BJK. The book could use some editing, there is a lot of repetition and some grammar issues. Still it was interesting to read about BJK’s career and her activism. ( )

I just finished Billie Jean King’s autobiography, “All In,” It’s also supposed to be good on audio.

She had quite a career, and I really learned or was reminded of so much history and how much things have changed. When she was outed; she lost all of her endorsements, and ended up having to work longer, playing tennis on rickety knees, partly for financial reasons. Then yesterday, we were at Macy’s, in the cosmetic section, and there was a big picture of pink-haired Megan Rapinoe, selling something or other. Things have really changed! ( )

I'm not really interested in tennis as a sport but have always liked outspoken advocates for women's equality in any arena. This book is a fascinating and very readable account of tennis star Billie Jean King's growing awareness of injustice, not just in relation to sex, but also race and sexual orientation, and her determination to do something about it. It paints a clear picture of her drive and enthusiasm for tennis and willingness to encourage others to become involved in the sport she loves. Highly recommended. ( )
