This is one of those autobiographies - like Lance Armstrong’s - that everyone should read. From the opening pages - when Agassi describes how his preschoolers know not to run at Daddy because his body’s so sore, he might break - this is a compelling and gripping read.  Agassi has a love-hate relationship with tennis - he hated the sport but it gave him the financial freedom to achieve so many dreams. Although it was published last year, this is the paperback edition so if the hardback price put you off now’s your chance to read a truly remarkable memoir.

I wouldn't normally look twice at this book (not being a sports person) but it sounds like a fascinating read. Thanks Kerre :)

This book is fantastic! I read it immediately after the earthquake in Christchurch and it diverted my attention from the aftershocks! In fact, I spent a number of nights reading until the small hours - couldn't put it down. Fascinating insight into Agassi's life and the life of a professional tennis player.

Wouldn't normally choose an autobiography but your review makes me think twice!

How many times I have passed this book in the bookshop and was memorized by the eyes on the cover. But reading your review I know this is going to be a must buy for Christmas, to sit outside on those summer evenings with a nice wine and a great book...thank you Kerre

I'm not a great tennis or autobiography fan but this was a good read for something different.

Not sure the reference to Lance is relevant anymore, my teen son read this many moons before I did, a compelling book with an amazing realistic look into the world of an elite sportsman.

I'm an Agassi fan and loved this book. It was an open and honest account of Agassi's life, warts and all. I highly recommend it!
