5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprisingly spiritual in nature! 23 novembre 2013
Par Smilealot - Publié sur Amazon.com

I had absolutely no expectations, good or bad about this memoir. Admittedly, I don't "follow" the tennis world and only knew a little bit about Andre Agassi - mainly that he had a "bad boy" reputation and that he had once been married to Brooke Shields. What this book showed me is that there is an amazing depth and sensitivity about this man that I don't think anyone ever watching a match or reading the papers would ever have gotten to know.

He laid it on the line here and seemed to be honest about his character flaws, including a brief usage of crystal meth. Although I think this was one of the tidbits that was widely trumpeted about this book, there is so much more to both the man and his story. He takes us on a journey of the spirit, and he is indeed a man who is aware of himself and his responsibility to the universe. His relationship with God is "up close and personal" (really, the way it should be), and we watch as he grows both as a tennis player and as a man.

Although he is gentle with those around them, almost making excuses for any of the problems his friends and employees may have had, he is brutally hard on himself, not surprisingly.

Through the stages of his life, we watch as he hates tennis, is his own worst enemy, begins to find himself and when he is comfortable with himself, his game and his life all improve. This was very, very well written and it is one of the better memoirs I've read.

I especially enjoyed the spiritual renaissance that shows him giving back to those around him culminating with his non-profit foundation and his incredible involvement with a school in an at risk area.

Although tennis naturally plays a big part in this book, ultimately, it becomes a metaphor for Andre Agassi's life. I feel honored to have been allowed to see a private and special part of this man's life.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The story of a reluctant athlete too down to earth for fame and fortune 22 avril 2015
Par Tail End Boomer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Andre Agassi was a rebel rival of Pete Sampras who made 90s tennis interesting before the light racket power game took over. This heartfelt book is about him having his life and career path chosen by his dad against his will and the tenuous relationship he has with tennis as a result. So if he comes across as living life in a state of quiet spiritual desperation instead of celebrity, then it's a psychological conflict and not a put on.

While parts of this seem articulately ghostwritten, the dramatic tournament recollections and rant excerpts therein ring true as coming from the subject as the reader is taken on a competition rollercoaster ride of a tennis rock star for whom the game was a job and play never came easy. Agassi is a drama king who never felt comfortable with life a pro sports figure. And only with the perspective of reminiscence does he value his place in time.

Despite all that he accomplished on the court, the book is rife with second guessing, contrariness and the insecurities of someone who is a fickle spirit not at peace with effete phoniness in the public eye. Top flight tennis spoils were not enough to get him through the night given the pressure and self doubt of a mercurial workmanlike career in which he struggled early and only overachieved in longevity as a late blooming career slammer.

In the end, he measures his success by what it later allowed him to do for others as a philanthropist. His growth and maturity stems from a well matched mate, Steffi Graff, and as the book winds down her effect transforms him from disillusion to contentment. The one cliche that sticks out is that like many other well intentioned charitable celebs, he fails to realize that real education begins after school when you learn to think for yourself.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing 23 novembre 2013

When a friend recommended this book to me I was quite skeptical. I am not so much into autobiographies nor tennis... Why would I like this book?
And then I downloaded a Kindle sample and in a few minutes I have been immediately captured, I needed to read all of it.
I found an amazing story, a fun, sad, captive, well placed, rich narration spanning ask over the eighties and nineties. I literally lived again those days when Agassi and Sampras were playing and battling to show their supremacy, this time not through the sterile eyes of a tv camera, but from the highly involved eyes and mind of Agassi. It was a nice revelation and at the same time good entertainment. I recommend it not only to all who love tennis, but mainly to those who have lived those days and will enjoy a new perspective, and those who are interested into a well written sorry of hard work, friendship, love and evolution of a man born for success.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Agassi shares all the good, bad & ugly. Great Read!! 25 avril 2017

A great read if you are at all into Tennis. AA keeps the pace fast, and makes you feel like you are on the court with him. Really a great inside look at the life of a professional tennis player. AA doesn't hide any of the dirt under the rug...He shakes the rug, so we see all the good and bad.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent read from start to finish. Entertaining and inspiring! 1 juin 2017

What an excellent way to start the book "The End". Very much in keeping with the rest of his story. Do what others wouldn't do. Kudos to Andre for putting it all out there, and doing it in such a way that keeps you hooked right from the start.
