Agassi's "Open" will not be available as an e-book when the hardcover comes out Nov. 9, and no date has been set for a digital release.
Publishers worry that the growing e-market will take business from the more expensive hardcovers.
E-editions also have been withheld for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy's "True Compass" and Stephen King's "Under the Dome."
Agassi's book is No. 9 on the best-seller list of Amazon.com as of Thursday afternoon. In it, the tennis great acknowledges using crystal meth in the 1990s.
