Could anyone recommend a good book about the life of touring pro?
I am interested in the expenses area, traveling, trainer, coaches, lodging, entering tournaments, etc.
Does JB's book "breaking back" have anything on this topics?
Blake's book is pretty superficial about life on the circuit. Actually, it's a bit superficial about a lot of his life -- the type and margins are big and it's practically double-spaced. This book would have been about 100 pages if they printed it normally.
Spadea's book "Break Point" is a little better for a look at life on the tour, although it's not exactly inspirational like Blake's.

I've read some books written in the 90's about touring and insides to the grand slams, they were pretty interesting. But in a different language.

Russian. The books are often written by other European former masters of sports though so you might be able to find them. I googled them and there are a few online but in english - I don't know, seems like the top 1,000,000 searches is going to be online bookstores.
