"A crowd pleasing bio..."-Publishers Weekly Andre Agassi is one of those rare athletes who transcend their sport. Even those who don't know a tiebreaker from a circuit breaker know who Agassi is. The same can't be said of Pete Sampras, even though Sampras has been far more successful. Maybe it's Agassi's ubiquitous television commercials. Maybe it's his marriage to Brooke Shields. Maybe it's his radical hairstyles & outlandish tennis attire. For all of Agassi's fame, though, the public doesn't really know him. Not even avid tennis fans. People see the brilliant shot-making & the listless performances, the showmanship & the tantrums, but they don't see the inner turmoil that causes his wild mood swings. Nor do they see his sensitivity. Controversy, drama, romance, glamour. Agassi's story has it all. With him, what else would you expect? Paul Bauman is an assistant sports editor at the Las Vegas Review-Journal who has written about Andre Agassi since Agassi's first tournament as a professional in 1986.
