Michael MewshawPro tennis could teach the mafia about omerta. Although dozens of champions have chattered away to ghostwriters, their memoirs have generally remained silent about the game's seamy realities…So it's both astonishing and a pleasure to report that Andre Agassi…has produced an honest, substantive, insightful autobiography. True to the genre of jock hagiography, it has its share of stock footage—total recall of famous matches, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat and an upbeat ending. But the bulk of this extraordinary book vividly recounts a lost childhood, a Dickensian adolescence and a chaotic struggle in adulthood to establish an identity that doesn't depend on alcohol, drugs or the machinations of PR.
