Open

Папаша безжалостно отстреливает ястребов, кружащих над домом, сестра сбежала из дома с великовозрастным теннисистом, а Андре никак не решит, что же купить на первые заработанные деньги - так необходимый ему свитер или подарок девочке, которая очень нравится?..
Биография Агасси кажется сказочной историей покорения мальчиком из бедной семьи большого мира и большого тенниса: в ней есть и агрессивный отец с тяжелой рукой, и безропотная мама, не смеющая заступиться за сына, и ненавистные маленьким Андре круглосуточные тренировки на корте.
Эмоциональные истории из жизни, смысл которой бунтарь Агасси нашел, только встретив настоящую любовь в лице Штефи Граф, ощутив радость отцовства и научившись выигрывать ради людей, которым необходима его поддержка, способны тронуть читателя до глубины души.

    My old editor always said that I should try to write like anyone, it should be J.R. Moehringer. So when this book came out--even though I'm a sub-par tennis player--I was excited. The second piece of ...

    Finished "Open" last night. I realize I'm way late to the party, this book having come out in Nov. '09, but I'm not really a non-fiction book reader. I'm still very glad to have read this, Andre's sto...

    Open was too long but it was entertaining. It was sold as a tell-all but didn't feel as though he said anything groundbreaking besides that he was insecure about basically everything in his life. He o...

    I have a checkered past with Andre Agassi. Having been a fan of pro-tennis since I was a kid, I was intrigued with Agassi when he debuted on the tour (I'll even admit to owning a pair of those denim s...

    One of the best sports biographies I've read. I was a huge Agassi fan growing up, not because of his flair or haircut, but because of his amazing topspin and his tenacity. So to get the inside story o...

    (5.0) I want you to read this bookOh my goodness, this was one of my favorite reading experiences ever. I'm not sure I can objectively explain it, but I laughed, I nearly cried, my palms sweated, I wa...

    While browsing my next buy, I had stumbled upon this one a number of times, before I finally decided to buy and read it last week. Time and money well spent. So, what is the book about? First, it is n...

    When Agassi first wins prize money, he phones his father to ask what he should do. If he cashes the cheque, it will mean he's turning pro. His father's response is harsh but also true: "You've dropped...

    I am not into tennis at all, but read this book back to back with Lang Lang's memoires, "Journey of a Thousand Miles". Why? Here are the stories of two men whose childhoods were taken away from them b...

    In case you didn't know (and if you don't know then I probably need to post Yuzu-stuff again) I'm a huge sports fan. And just to be clear and completely honest: I'm the kind of fan who wakes up at 7 o...
