  1. Loved that James is re-reading The Prophet, a wonderful little book filled with timeless gems like “The lights of stars that were extinguished ages ago still reaches us. So it is with great men who died centuries ago, but still reach us with the radiations of their personalities.” And Joel the Andre Agassi bio is a great read, I enjoyed it, so much more to the guy than just tennis.

  2. Agassi looks like an intense, intelligent compassionate person
