Eventually the book does drift to Andre and his relationship with Nick Bolliteri, his career and his two marriages. But more than anything this book is about an American family headed by a driven immigrant from Iran and how it puts itself back together after volatile relationships caused by his tennis obsession. After following Agassi's career somewhat put off by his early grandstanding, I must admit, this book does give me far greater appreciation for the struggles in his life. If you're a tennis fan, I strongly recommend this book.
It took forty-four years, but in 1992 his son Andre got the golden ring. It was not a peaceful four years as the father tried to instill his dream onto his children. It makes you wonder if the price that Mike and the kids payed was worth the reward.
