<p><b>#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER<br /></b></p><p>Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, <i>Open</i> is the engrossing story of a remarkable life.<br /> <br />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.</p>

We're delighted to introduce the Swiss bestseller about Roger Federer in English, brought to you by k&b Edition. It was written by Simon Graf and translated into English from the original German by Sophie Debrunner Hall. Over its 16 essays, Simon Graf's new portrait offers new insights into one of the greatest athletes of all time.<br /><br />Roger Federer is the global star who emerged from our very midst. Mad about ball sports from a young age, his playfulness and passion pushed him fur-ther and further – and on to dizzying heights. His sporting exploits are well-known, but who is the man behind them? For the last twenty years, Zurich-based journalist Simon Graf has fol-lowed Federer's triumphant journey through the great tennis arenas of the world for the Swiss press. Here, he an-swers the key questions: how did Federer become a Zen master of the courts? What part did his parents and his wife Mirka have to play? How did he maintain his love for the sport over all these years? Why does he owe eternal thanks to his rival, Rafael Nadal? How did he stay so normal? And what can we learn from him?
Strokes of Genius

<DIV><p>In the 2008 Wimbledon men’s final, Centre Court was a stage set worthy of Shakespearean drama. Five-time champion Roger Federer was on track to take his rightful place as the most dominant player in the history of the game. He just needed to cling to his trajectory. So in the last few moments of daylight, Centre Court witnessed a coronation. Only it wasn’t a crowning for the Swiss heir apparent but for a swashbuckling Spaniard. Twenty-two-year-old Rafael Nadal prevailed, in five sets, in what was, according to the author, "essentially a four-hour, forty-eight-minute infomercial for everything that is right about tennis—a festival of skill, accuracy, grace, strength, speed, endurance, determination, and sportsmanship." It was also the encapsulation of a fascinating rivalry, hard fought and of historic proportions.</p><p>In the tradition of John McPhee’s classic <i>Levels of the Game, Strokes of Genius </i>deconstructs this defining moment in sport, using that match as the backbone of a provocative, thoughtful, and entertaining look at the science, art, psychology, technology, strategy, and personality that go into a single tennis match.With vivid, intimate detail, Wertheim re-creates this epic battle in a book that is both a study of the mechanics and art of the game and the portrait of a rivalry as dramatic as that of Ali–Frazier, Palmer–Nicklaus, and McEnroe–Borg.</p></div>
