Definitely. Great. story. Well written.
Yes; he did a great job.
Although, he used the same extra deep voice for most male adults & his female voices made Brooke etc. sound whiny.
But, overall, great job.
Harder. Hit Harder!
I'm not a tennis fan but I do love a good autobiography. I found Agassi's life story very interesting, and his telling of his story comes from an honest and humble place. Although I definitely wouldn't call it a "tell all". He was very respectful in talking about his relationships with Streisand, and for the most part, Brooke Shields, although his disdain for her is evident. The only thing I didn't like about it was the constant, unending play-by-play of seemingly every tennis game he's ever played. But those parts would probably be interesting to anyone who loves tennis. All in all I found it a good read.

Thanks Andre, for letting us into your life.
Short and sweet reviews, Allentown pa
this is a must listen, no offense to davies, but for this story having andre narrate would of been great, personally i wish he would stop talking about others ed. and earn his own, even getting his ged would be great
I loved the details of his matches
the part where his brother tells him to stand up to his father, for a specific thing.
eh. i didn't love the performance, so i didn't really like any of the character's portrayals. i guess i would have liked andre the best.
he hated his one true love
I don't think there's another one to written. I liked the narration enough not to avoid Erik's other work, but I wouldn't seek him out either.
Recommended. I enjoyed listening as I went for long runs.
The narration is solid and supports the story well... except for the female voices Erik Davies tries to pull off. She got annoying pretty quick, especially at 1.5 speed.
Overall a well constructed story of Agassi's life and career. But I have to Open myself—I don't like the guy. So why did I listen in on his story? Because I love the game and he definitely provides insider access to the big matches and the relationships that made him since an icon (for better or worse). I would have preferred more details on matches, technique and even equipement, but I understand the book had to have a more broad appeal than to someone looking for minutia.
For anybody who has ever loved tennis it is like a breath of fresh air. Full of shameless honesty, contradictions, surprises and anecdotes of a generation of my preferred generation of players.
Apart from the incredible and beautiful story, I must say, the reader is phenomenal. So possibly yes, to enjoying the audio more than reading. I listen at the gym, so I enjoy the audio version anyway.
I feel closer with Agassi after listening... loved the book.
No, I cherish the books over time.
If you like sports, you definitely will enjoy this book.
Open was a great book, I knew little of Andre Agassi's life and he is truly an amazing fellow.
Above all odds.
Listening to this book made me aware that there is a huge price to pay for such athletic success.
