I've wanted to read this ever since I read Booking Mama's review. I'm glad to see you enjoyed it even though you're not a non-fiction or sports reader.

I absolutely adored this one!!! Riveting. The first chapter is one of the best of any memoir I've ever read.

Amie aka MammaLoves

Oooh.. I'm glad for this review. He and I are the same age I think and I was a tennis player in a previous life so I followed him closely. He always struck me as a compelling figure. Will add to my wishlist.

I enjoyed this one also, especially his honesty. I don't watch tennis much now, but used to watch a lot during his time vs Sampras, so definitely bring back memories.

My review:

Man of la Book

Great review. I always am factinated by memoirs, especially those written by someone not-so-famous about a very short period of their lives where they had an adventure.


Thanks for all the comments! Glad that others enjoyed it as much as I did. @Christa- going to check out your review! @Amie, I agree - he's the same age as me and I liked tracking his life through the same years that I was the same age.


The cover is really gorgeous. I'm surprised there weren't more photos in the book. I'm glad you liked it though. I am fascinated by the fact that he didn't really like tennis when he played. I suppose the extreme training could make you hate the sport.

This book was one of my first impulse purchases when I got my Kindle for Christmas in 2009, and I still haven't read it. I'm glad to hear you loved it! I used to be a huge sports fan and barely follow it anymore, but it still intrigues me.


I'm so glad I saw your review of this one. My mother, who is in her 80's, follows tennis avidly, and liked Agassi alot, so I am going to get this for her. I have to admit to being surprised that his book is so good. Thanks for this review :)


My mom was always a huge Agassi fan. I remember watching some of his games with her. While I'm not sure if I am interested enough to read this, I have a feeling it will be a good recommendation for her. Thanks for the review.
