I am a huge fan of Andre. I love how much he adores his cute wife. I am empressed how generous he is. I enjoyed learning about his life how ever the language was so offensive that I almost quit listening it several times. I get that maybe that is the way it was for him, but it was a little too much for me.
The book offers us a different perspective of the tennis legend. It was nice to have an inside view of what was going on in his head during his matches. The book was honest, and quite entertaining. I enjoyed it. Thanks for telling us your story, Andre.
The narrator is SO good I thought it was Adnre himself reading.
To see what he has accomplished with what was going on inside his head is fascinating.
I loved this story from start to finish. I am a sports fan and was always aware of Agassi, but I was never a big tennis fan. This revealing portrait of the boy, teen, and man behind "image is everything" is compelling and compulsively readable (listenable). Highly recommended.
What a great listen. I couldn't stop. I listened in my car, I listened on my Zune, I listened on my computer. Well written and very insightful. Thanks Andre !
I'm sorry to say this incredible story was horribly read by Erik Davies. His tone-deaf impersonations were so bad that it ruined the book for me. He reduced Andre and Brook into cardboard caricatures of themselves. Better to simply read this book. Too bad Andre didn't read it himself.
I loved every minute of "Open"
I always enjoyed routing for Andre during the good times and the bad.
The descriptions of the matches I felt like I was watching them all over.
One of the best books I've ever read. Not just one of the best sports books.
From the first words of the beginning chapter, this story grabbed me and wouldn't let go. As a tennis enthusiast, I thought I knew who Andre Agassi was. I was totally wrong.
Listening to how he started in tennis at a very young age...and under extremely unusual conditions...gave me a different picture of Agassi. And then following him through his career and his personal kept me listening late into the nights.
And the audio narration? Superb!
A must have for any tennis fan.An amazing story that leaves the listener/reader learning many things about Andre.Excellent job by Erik Davies as well.I was hesistant at first when learning Andre did not voice this book,but no need to worry,Erik brings this story to life.
