One of the best books I have read! I could not put it down. I can believe he got to Stephie before me! Oh well, she would not have liked my game!

Its a fantastic book about how his dad raised him, his training at Bollatarri tennis academy, Brad Gilbert, Brooke Shields, Steffi Graff, and his tennis career including a stint with meth!
You could not make up all the all of the drama!

I read it. It was pretty good. In some ways I liked Pete's book better though. I think maybe because the attitude he displayed through his book as a player meshes more with mine.

That said, however, when one actually reads the Andre's book, the pre-released quotes really get toned down a lot and put into better perspective. One thing I think the book did very well is that Andre grows up in the book and he takes the reader along with him for that journey and you feel a bit of a part of that process.
