I hate reading. Thanks audible for allowing me to experience stories without turning a single page or cranking my neck.
A book about a tennis player kept my attention the whole way through. That deserves 5 stars.
Incredible hidden story of one of America's greatest athletes! Reads like a thriller! I believe his intent was to be as honest as possible and with an almost photographic memory of events he pulls off quite a story. Is it fully 'open,' who are we to know? I didn't care! Erik Davies did a great job but it would have been more interesting to hear Agassi narrate himself!
This was my first Audible listen to it's ranked #1 so far.
The long boring segment about going to a taping of "Friends"
Extra self deprecating
Easy to listen. I wish there had been a little bit less about brook shields. For the most part it was very engaging.
A journey into the mind and soul of AA. Emotional roller coaster. Learned things about the man that I didn't know, my opinion of him was wrong shaped the media at that time.
I love this book! I grew up loving Andre Agassi's game. I also grew up loving Stephie Graff. It is a pleasure to hear struggles and his victories and how he overcame and finally "grew up" (his words). I also relate to the love story. I am looking forward to reading it again sometime.
Usually professional athletes are a little biased towards themselves. This was refreshingly real and personal. You feel like you know him, not just what he accomplished. The story of Agassi's life is interesting and surprising in many ways.
Agassi writes in a way that is more fact and less opinion than most.
I absolutely loved listening to this book.
Say something about yourself!
Yes, you do not need to be a tennis fan to love this book you basically have to be a life fan. When I was a kid Andre was not my favorite player but I did like him second to Pete, that is when I watched the most tennis in my life. This book goes so much deeper than most 'sports biographies' go. You get a great impression of every step of his life, it is written so well you get a feel for every character.
The early years of his life get you hooked because I would have never guessed what Agassi went through. From beginning to end it remains excellent. I listened to this book in 3 sessions the 3rd being the last 45 mins.
Where a rival turns into a friend.
All range of emotions, it is a top 10 book for me and I would have never expected that.
Do not wait on this one, if you have never listened to a tennis audio book make this one your first.
