No other public figure has changed more in my estimation than Andre Agassi. At the beginning of his career he was exactly the type of athlete I find annoying, and now he is exactly the type of public figure I admire. To say he has put his money where his mouth is would be an understatement.
Don't know his story? Here's some recommended reading:
