About the book
Coaxed to swing a racket while still in the crib, forced to hit hundreds of balls a day while still in grade school, Agassi resented the constant pressure even as he drove himself to become a prodigy, an inner conflict that would define him. Now, in his beautiful, haunting autobiography, Agassi tells the story of a life framed by such conflicts.
Reviewed by HIP Andover Reading Group:
Tedious reading with dates etc. Reveals the often ugly aspects of sporting ‘success’. Redeeming character features towards end with new life and college.
