#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.

Beautiful Story

What an extraordinarily moving story. It is well told, has tension, and is hard to put down. You just want to see what happens next. You just want to see how Andre will grow and evolve, and turn from hating tennis to loving it. This is an inspiring book; it is timeless and speaks to the human-ness of anyone who seeks to find him/herself.
