" -The New York Times" 100 Notable Books of 2009
Andre Agassi s memoir is just as entrancing as his tennis game . . . By sharing an unvarnished, at times inspiring story in an arresting, muscular style, Agassi may have just penned one of the best sports autobiographies of all time. Check it s one of the better memoirs out there, period.
-Sean Gregory, " Time"
Not just a first-rate sports memoir but a genuine bildungsroman, darkly funny yet also anguished and soulful. It confirms what Agassi s admirers sensed from the outset, that this showboat . . . was not clamoring for attention but rather conducting a struggle to wrest some semblance of selfhood from the sport that threatened to devour him.
-Sam Tanenhaus, "The New York Times Book Review"
A remarkable and quite unexpected volume, one that sails well past its homiletic genre into the realm of literature, a memoir whose success clearly owes not a little to a reader s surprise in discovering that a celebrity one may have presumed to know on the basis of that haircut and a few television commercials hawking cameras via the slogan image is everything emerges as a man of parts self-aware, black-humored, eloquent.
-Michael Kimmelman, " The New York Review of Books"
[A] heartfelt memoir . . . Agassi s style is open, all right, and his book, like so many of his tennis games, is a clear winner.
"-O, The Oprah Magazine"
"Open "describes [Agassi s] personal odyssey with brio and unvarnished candor . . . His career-comeback tale is inspiring but even more so is another "Open "storyline. It could be called: The punk grows up . . . Countless athletes start charitable foundations, but frequently the organizations are just tax shelters or PR stunts. For Mr. Agassi helping others has instead become his life s calling . . ." Open "is a superb memoir, but it hardly closes the books on an extraordinary life.
-Jay Winik, " The Wall Street Journal"
It s both astonishing and a pleasure to report that Andre Agassi . . . has produced an honest, substantive, insightful autobiography . . . The bulk of this extraordinary book vividly recounts a lost childhood, a Dickensian adolescence, and a chaotic struggle in adulthood to establish an identity . . . While not without excitement, Agassi s comeback to No. 1 is less uplifting than his sheer survival, his emotional resilience, and his good humor in the face of the luckless cards he was often dealt.
-Michael Mewshaw, " Washington Post"
Honest in a way that such books seldom are . . . An uncommonly well-written sports memoir.
-Charles McGrath, " The New York Times"
Probably the most candid sports autobiography ever written . . . A remarkably real, tell-it-like-it-is, record-breaking read.
-Nancy Isenberg, "The" [Baton Rouge] "Advocate"
Agassi weaves a fascinating tale of professional tennis and personal adversity . . . His tale shows that success is measured both on and off the court.
-Doree Shafrir, "New York Post"
Refreshingly candid . . . This lively, revealing, and entertaining book is certain to roil the tennis world and make a big splash beyond.
" -Publishers Weekly"
Enigmatic tennis great Agassi lays it all on the line . . . Agassi s photographic recall of pivotal matches evokes the raw intensity of watching them from the stands. Lovers of the sport will also appreciate this window into the mind of a champion . . . An ace of a tale about how one man found his game.
