Description

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER

Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, Open is the engrossing story of a remarkable life.
 
Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game’s highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, and—described in haunting, point-by-point detail—the highs and lows of his celebrated career.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    I'm not a reader, but I read this book in two days. Agassi was my hero growing up, and I tried to emulate his game. Mullet and all. After reading this I am once again inspired. Unreal.
  • Great book!

    A book AKA an experience that will take you thought the life of not only a athlete but a hall all time great. His honesty is pure and shocking with a mix of many thrilling moments. The ups and downs found in this book will keep you hooked from chapter to chapter and from phase to phase. It's extremely hard for a athlete to see himself without the thing that defines him most and this book tells how to do it and do it with passion. Recommended for anyone who loves sports and hates to loose. Lessons we all need to learn from and share. Thank You, AKA!!
