An Autobiography

By Billie Jean King, Johnette Howard & Maryanne Vollers
Narrated by: Billie Jean King
Length: 18 hours 6 minutes

All In

“What a gift the autobiography of Billie Jean King is for all of us! I listened to Billie Jean King tell me the history of women's tennis and sports (Title IX, equal pay), social justice movements, gay rights, women's liberation, and of her life. To use one of her words — amazing!...This is an autobiography, not a memoir, so it is comprehensive and goes from childhood to the present. Billie Jean King is careful to dole out credit where credit is due. She has no axes to grind— and is mostly interested in talking about the change that still needs to happen, and her legacy. I will now forever have her voice and her laugh in my head. What a gift that is.”
