Andre Agassi’s Autobiography, OPEN

 

I love hearing and reading people’s stories. Life unfolds as we live it – even for those we look up to and idolize, for those who seem to have it all figured it out and only know success.

I find myself re-reading this book every six months or so. Bob Goff reminds me how I want to approach love and treat others. It’s a quick, easy read and the personal stories he shares are a lot of fun to read. Each chapter can be its stand alone story and message, so I’ve found it fun to pick a chapter and read it with friends.

I think this is true for not just entrepreneurs but also anyone who is willing to takes risks and follow their passions.
