This particular non-fiction book was recommended to me by my older brother. What an excellent recommendation. It was a fantastic book.
I had to wait for the book to come into the library as it was out on loan. I made a reservation and had to wait a few weeks before it became available. It was well worth the wait.
The book is one that keeps you enthralled from beginning to end. I liked the tennis player Andre Agassi before I read this book. He was the young brat, disliked by the press, when he first arrived on the tennis scene but by the time he retired he was the revered older statesman. Agassi looks back on his life and on the decisions he made. Simple, clear, truthful, it’s a confession about winning and losing, about finding yourself and about discovering when to change and how to continue despite everything that goes against you.
If you want a more detailed review you can find one here.
Without doubt, one of the best autobiographies of a sportsman I have ever read.

Heather,Ihave only just downloaded this yesterday to my kindle to read on our trip round Iceland !! Peter recommended it to us too.i am sure I will love it. Perhaps shades of Nick Kygrios here?
I don’t think Agassi was as bad as Kygrios but I haven’t watched him. It is only what I have read in the press on the internet.
