Review

This one of the few sports biographies I’ve read, and my friends were right: it’s good. Open: An Autobiography begins with a disoriented Andre Agassi waking in the morning, completely disoriented, in pain, struggling to recall who he is, why is back is throbbing, where he is...and it all comes flooding back, including the fact that he is a tennis player, and he hates tennis.

It’s all there: obsessive father figure, self-doubt, physical debilitations, insane pressure, deep denial, drug issues, Brooke Shields, etc. With the help of J. R. Moehringer (of The Tender Bar), Agassi weaves a compelling life story, even for non-sports-fans

If you like this, you may also enjoy...
