About the Author
Andre Agassi played tennis professionally from 1986 to 2006. Often ranked number one, he captured eight Grand Slam singles championships, tying him for seventh on the all-time list, and he's the only man to win a career 'Golden Slam' - all four Grand Slam singles titles plus the Olympic gold medal. He also compiled one of the best records ever by an American in the Davis Cup. As founder of the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation, he has raised more than $85 million for the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, an acclaimed K-12 charter school for underprivileged children in his hometown, Las Vegas. He lives in Las Vegas with his wife, Stefanie Graf, and their two children.

I had a vague interest in Andre Agassi. What I got was an open athlete who has told his life as it was. I found a man baring his soul and his life. I found one of the most open, honest biographies I have ever read.
What I also found is one of the best biographies I have ever read. It grabbed me and did not let me go again until the final page and then some internet researches in wikipedia. I am very happy that he is still married to Steffi Graf and seems to be a happy man while I am, unknown to him, writing these lines. I really wish him all the best. This because I really feel I know this man now although we have never met and we have never exhanged letters. And that is all the hallmarks of a brilliant biography.
This books is among the five best biographies I have ever read. And I have read a looooot of biographies. Too many.
I loved the honesty that he brought to each page and for allowing us full disclosure into his life. For me, this is what I want to read when someone writes an autobiography.
When I began watching tennis in 2001, Sampras was always my favourite, but after learning about Agassi's story I have become in awe of his achievements.
This is a must read, whether you like tennis or not, and whether or not you know who Agassi is.
