    One thought on “The Agassi Story”

    1. Mike Agassi shares the interesting family background and strong encouragement that led to Andre Agassi's start in tennis. Mike's dominant influence helped create Andre, but it also led Andre to discover his own personality and strength. Behind the tennis story is the story of a family descended from an Iranian immigrant that lost its way and then found it again.

    2. I don't generally read biographies.Started with this anyways and loved it!Such a simple narrative, that has been put in straight forward.No twists, no turns, no surprises.A simple man putting forward his life story, his family's story.A feel good book.Looks like, I'll have to try out few more biographies.And mind you, its not Andre Agassi we are talking about here, but his father! :)

    3. Now I can show off to my tennis friends by displaying pieces of knowledge about Agassi's life and upbringing.
