Andre Agassi – Open

agassiopen

Author: Andre Agassi

Description of Book:

“No one ever asked me if I wanted to play tennis,” Agassi writes, “let alone make it my life.” In OPEN, he recalls for the first time a childhood without choices. Forced to embrace tennis, banished to a brutal tennis camp while still in grade school, catapulted to fame while still in his teens, Agassi grew up feeling isolated, alienated, detached. In OPEN he tells how he reconnected, how he overcame his fears, fought through his loneliness, found strength and purpose in the decision to devote his life to others-and in the love of one extraordinary woman.
