Making best sellers requires a little imagination.
Just in time for the Christmas season (and selling anything you can hock), Andre Agassi joins the latest list of celebrities to come out with a harrowing memoir of the year he was a meth head. As we all know meth is a bad drug which infers that for a whole year a national hero was caught up being a bad person.
What induced Andre you wonder. Let’s have a look at what the book called “Open” has to say. Surely the clues are all there…
Agassi’s incredibly rigorous training begins when he is just a child. By the age of thirteen, he is banished to a Florida tennis camp that feels like a prison camp. A lonely, scared, ninth-grade dropout, he rebels in ways that will soon make him a 1980s icon. He dyes his hair, pierces his ears, and dresses like a punk rocker. By the time he turns pro at sixteen, his new look promises to change tennis forever, as does his lightning-fast return.
See kids? Being famous and a world champion can be a hard day at the office. Sometimes resorting to dangerous (but fun) behavior is all you can do.
But how did Andre redeem himself? After all he is a champion.
In clear, taut prose, Agassi evokes his loyal brother, his wise coach, his gentle trainer, all the people who helped him regain his balance and find love at last with Stefanie Graf.
Love. Love saved Andre and this is what the world can tell you. Love will save you too, of course you can read all about this once the book comes out…
