by Arthur Ashe with Arnold Rampersad. Thirty-two pages of photos-not seen) (First printing of 150,000). Pub Date: June 23rd, 1993. With an unobtrusive assist from Rampersad (The Life of Langston Hughes, 1988), Ashe offers a thoughtful, if episodic, appreciation of his well-spent life. Opening with a replay of the distressing events leading up to his dramatic disclosure in April 1992 that he'd contracted AIDS from a blood transfusion following open-heart surgery ten years earlier, the author takes a leisurely and comfortably digressive stroll down memory lane, evenhandedly recalling-among other matters-just what it was like to be the first.

In this book Arthur touches various areas including the announcement that he had HIV from a transfusion as part of a heart surgery. He discusses his time as coach of the USA Davis Cup team. The last chapters on Days of Grace offer insight into how African Americans lost their moral way which lead to the situation today with many youths completely disrespectful of authority and ending up in prison. His last chapter is directed to his daughter, Camera, and what may have been some of his last words to her. These thoughts show his perspective on life.

I had tried to read this book many times and heard of Arthur Ashe my whole life. He was a tennis star and my cousins from the inner city always received tennis rackets from parks and rec he donated and they always brought them to our home in the suburbs to play. Mike Tyson read this book in prison and has Arthur's image as a tattoo on his arm. I read several biography a about Arthur as a boy but I'm glad I read this book now as an educated adult to understand many of his points. He dies in 1993 and to understand how educated and knowledgeable he was and that his ideas transcend time was insightful. Read this book and keep in your toolbox because it's lessons in this book that will make you a better man, husband, and father.

Too Legit. Bought used for $4! Perfect condition. Arthur Ashe is an awesome human being, personal hero of mine. (Don't know about naming his kid Camera, but ehhh, whatever. You rocked it Arthur!)

One of my all time favorite tennis players, and another that departed us too soon. I have this book for many years, and purchased this as a gift for a player who is young and should learn about Arthur Ashe.

I have always been a fan of Arthur Ashe's tennis. I think he was one of the greats in sports. When I heard that he had AIDS, I wondered how this would affect his life, sports, and the fascination people have with celebrities. This book opened my eyes to the pressures on the families of people with HIV/AIDS. He was a true inspiration, as are his wife and daughter. Much can be learned from reading this biography.

Being a fan of tennis I had heard a lot about Arthur Ashe, but I really did not know too much about him. He was a really outstanding man: a black boy who lived in times when there was still segregation between blacks and whites, he had to play tennis in black-only courts; he was the first black man to win some of the most important tennis tournaments; he got a college degree which he used to promote the situation of black people; he was afflicted by severe heart problems, and in one of the surgeries he received a blood transfusion with tainted blood, being infected with AIDS. This is a very insightful book because I was able to understand the point of view of an educated black man who suffered of discrimination, how there were times that he felt resentful, how it was to live with AIDS and how to cope with journalists, how to announce it publicly and what it meant to his family. He is very articulate in his thoughts and I could feel myself walking in his shoes.
Compelling...and poignant read, considering it's coming out posthumously.

May Ashe's legacy NEVER be forgotten
