This autobiography of tennis great Andre Agassi is one of the best autobiographies I’ve ever read, and I don’t particularly like sports. Ably assisted by ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer, a Pulitzer Prize winner, Agassi hits a perfect autobiography combination of a man making peace with his inner demons mixed with just the right dash of celebrity scandal. Even if you never cheered for Agassi when he was playing tennis, you’ll be rooting for him by the end of the book.

Don't tend to read biographies, especially autobiographies, however I'm glad I ventured outside my tendencies for this one. Definitely a must-read for Agassi fans, tennis historians, and biography lovers. Tremendous blend of personal revelations, insider gossip, self-mythologizing, record straightening, and tennis match action from in the trenches. Loved it.

Outstanding! You can just feel the pain, anguish, and exhiliration that Agassi endured, especially in the long, grueling matches toward the end of his career. His co-author, JR Moehringer, didn't want to receive credit, but was clearly responsible for this being so well written. Highly recommend Moehringer's touching book, The Tender Bar.

I opened this book so you could say i am one of the openers

From the first few pages I knew I'd be staying up late to finish this one. Compelling stories, vivid retelling of matches and some interesting insight into his "rivals" as well.

And, if you read the acknowledgements, you will learn he had a ghostwriter. An amazing ghostwriter.

The way Andre tells his story is absolutely amazing. I admit, I don't even like tennis and I was captivated the whole way through. If you're looking for a great autobiography to read, this is it!

What an interesting life. Insight on what drove him and his talent and how it helped him develop into the interesting adult he is today. Fasinating autobiography - even if, like me, you know nothing about tennis.

Agassi probably could not have written this very readable biography without a lot of help; but yes, it's a page-turner.
