Fascinating account of Agassi's rise through retirement. Well worth the read for any tennis lover. I didn't give it five stars because it's ultimately not going to change your life but I absolutely recommend it.
The entire prologue -- Andre's introduction to his second-to-last match (against Marcos). He gave lots of good descriptions about life and how tennis an analogous.
A fantastic book -- written very well. This is not a book about tennis -- this is a book about Andre's journey, and it reads almost like a fiction. Very interesting and fast paced. You don't need to know anything about tennis to appreciate this book.
A great insight into the thought processes of a competetive athelete. Has lessons for every parent and voyeur of athletic competitions by letting one peek inside the mind during one man's journey from boyhood to manhood.
Sitting listening, I realize theres a similarity between playing in the low grades to the pros, tennis is a mental game, if you think you're hot, you are, if you think you're not, you aren't.
I remember watching Agassi during summer break as a kid. Very good book about his struggles throughout life on the tour. Was fascinated during the entire book. Definitely recommend!
