While usually praised as being a true giant in the world of professional tennis, Andre Agassi has emerged as a gifted and totally engaging writer with his book Open: An Autobiography. Driven by his tyrannical father to develop at an early age as a skillful and extremely competitive tennis player, Agassi did just that. Oddly enough, he keeps telling his readers how much he hated tennis. And, it is easy to understand that through Agassi's clarity and truthfulness in his writing. Turning pro at 16, he entered the world of professional tennis at full speed. Playing in tournament after tournament, he did more than fulfill his father's desires to become a nationally recognized tennis player. But, as Agassi relates, the price was high. His description of life in professional tennis is harrowing at times. His personal life is covered as well from his troubled first marriage to Brooke Shields to finding supreme happiness with Stephanie Graff. He ends his tennis career as a true champion and then goes on to create a remarkable school in Las Vegas for underprivileged children and adolescents, the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy. Open: An Autobiography is a terrifically interesting, well written and entertaining book!
