Una impressionant autobiografia que sorpren amb tot el que explica de les pressions i depressions que va patir. ( )

I completely loved this book! If you like tennis the opening section detailing a 2006 epic match between Agassi and Marcos Baghdatis at US Open is worth reading even if you don't go any further into the book.

I'm about the same age as Agassi and I remember all the phases of his career and how much I disliked him as a wacky haired teenager and then how much I liked him by the time he retired. I really enjoyed seeing his side of things and learning how and why he looked and acted like he did thoroughout his life.

I think it gives an interesting view into the "glamorous" life of a successful professional athelete. From the outside, traveling the world and playing tennis for a living sounds pretty fun an exciting but to get to that point, it's difficult and unpleasant and incredibly pressure packed and once you're at the top --- you're constantly traveling, practicing and feeling the stress. It's really not so great.

I think he does a nice job of revealing his insecurities and explaining (as much as he can) why he couldn't stay focused. He seems to be truthful about things and while he says things about other people (his father, Brooke Shields, and some of his opponents) that aren't nice -- they aren't nasty either. They seem real. Perhaps colored by his own world view but still real.

Really very enjoyable especially if you like tennis and know all the people he's talking about.

The writing of J.R. Moehringer is ok, but this book unfortunately ends up by being just boring. The first chapter is really compelling - and so are some insights on the tennis psychology (for instance the referral to Brad Gilbert's "Winning ugly" strategy), but the rest of the book, especially Agassi's personal life and love relationships are taking too much space. For nice review by Geoff Dyer: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2009/nov/08/open-autobiography-andre-agassi ( )

I was a big Andre Agassi fan throughout his career. Seeing the rise and fall of his career, this book brings into sharp focus the inner demons and conflict that peppered his life. He writes of feelings of loneliness and estrangement in such a clear way that the reader can't help but travel that journey and feel his desperation and indecision. Andre runs the gamut of emotions without understanding the root cause until he is well into adulthood. What a horrible way to navigate life. I appreciate his willingness to articulate the events in such a way that anyone can relate or sympathize with his choices while cheering him on for going though the trials and tribulations to become a better person, husband and father. He demonstrates what digging deep inside you to carve out who you are meant to be is possible no matter where you come from. ( )

“Open” is one of the most passionately anti-sports books ever written by a superstar athlete — bracingly devoid of triumphalist homily and star-spangled gratitude.
 
Somebody on the memoir team has great gifts for heart-tugging drama.
