#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, Open is the engrossing story of a remarkable life. Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game’s highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, and—described in haunting, point-by-point detail—the highs and lows of his celebrated career. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Welcome to Truth Facts, a collection of information graphics that poke fun at societal quirks and everyday absurdities through charts and graphs. Danish writer Mikael Wulff and cartoon artist Anders Morgenthaler have taken the internet by storm with their humorous and perceptive infographics that turn commonplace phenomena into clever commentary. In distilling keen observations about universal experiences into elegant charts and graphs, Truth Facts gets to the heart of the paradoxical and wonderful world we all share, and puts modern reality into perspective in a funny and visceral way. These simple, colorful graphics explore societal quirks and everyday oddities, such as what happens when you call customer service (anything but service), when banks are open (only when you’re at work), the biggest lies on the internet (“LOL”), and much more. Playfully teasing readers even as it explores themes like perception vs. reality, this compendium of life’s truthiest facts prods us to laugh at ourselves, own up to our shortfalls, accept the strangeness of the world we live in, and continue on—happier and more connected to one another than ever before.
