From Publishers Weekly
This adulatory biography of the 23-year-old tennis player from Las Vegas is written by a British freelance sports journalist who considers Andre Agassi a tennis immortal because he won at Wimbledon in 1992. Agassi is portrayed as a beleaguered figure: the son of a tyrannical father determined that one of his children would become a court champion, he was packed off to tennis boot camp in Florida at age 13 and gradually won some major titles, while earning a reputation as a foul-tempered brat, which he has slowly started to erase. Driven to excel on the court by his father, it is hardly surprising that Agassi fought all authority throughout his adolescence. Tennis's "golden boy" seems finally to be growing up, but Philip's biography, which smacks of press-agentry, makes it hard to take him seriously. Photos.
