He writes about the rigorous training sessions that he had to go through as a child. A ninth-grade dropout, he was sent to a Florida tennis camp that felt like prison.

Not does Agassi sum up his sports career, he also helps us know his dad, mom, sis, friends, teachers, the academy, his crushes and not ...

    Rivetting is an understatement for this book

    Synonymous to the title of the book, Andre Agassi's autobiography "Open" is a succinct portrayal of a sportsman's inner struggles with self, how he battles against those things in life which he hates to the core and turns the corner. It can prove to be inspirational for those of us who have ended up in the wrong profession with not much motivation.
    Also Andre's humaneness and his deep concern for his entourage, especially his all out efforts to help them during their troubled times, leaves on...

    Honest man using simple language, interesting read.

    It's a good read, well-written, easy language, yet very expressive. Get to know how life can be for a tennis champ literally tortured to fame by his dad.
    Despite going through hell for most of his life, Agassi finally gets a happy life in which he accepts himself with maturity and grace, and smartly obtains the woman he admires as his understanding and loving wife - Steffi.
    Way to go, Agassi ! :-)

    Great insight into the life of a Tennis player

    If you've grown up in the 80s and 90s and have been somewhat alive during that period you would have heard of Andre Agassi. If you followed Tennis, then you know him as one of the legends. Open is a great book not only to understand that behind every grand slam win there is a lot of hard work, but also because Agassi truly opens up about his life. He talks about his "hate" for tennis, his relationships, and how everything eventually made him the person he turned out to be. An spectacular insi...

    Breathtaking book!!

    The best autobiography I ever read. I finished reading the book in 2 days. It was so intriguing. Anyone who doesn't know about tennis would also really love the book. How he hated tennis and he was still very good at it. This book will again redefine his iconic status!! A must read for everyone specially tennis lovers and Andre Agassi fans!!

    One of the best books ever.!!

    This is one of the books which i have read multiple no of times.
    The narration is absolutely brilliant. The journey of Agassi from a child prodigy to World No 1 then falling back to World No 141 and again working back his way to the Top is just wonderful.
    Its a book not just for Tennis fans but it can be read by anyone interested in knowing a story of a successful person.

    One of the better sports biographies

    A lot of sports biographies I have read across a gamut of sports are pretty bland and fail to enthuse the reader. This one is pleasantly different ... It is witty, honest (blatant at times) and crisp. It seamlessly takes u through the various phases of Andre's tennis stint ... starting as a 80s rebel to th2 2000s mature statesman of the game ... It's a no hold barred account and has some interesting anecdotes on his rollercoaster life, his relationship with Gil, his on-court rivalry with Samp...
