Book Review   by:Indiana003     Original Author: Arthur Ashe
ª
 
When it comes to account the life of a great we really understand how a man has struggled in his life to reach the zenith. His hard work, his dedication, his passion. "Days of Grace” is an Autobiography written by the famous tennis player Arthur Ashe. Born in a small town in Richmond, Virginia in 1943, Arthur was born at a time when the South was segregated and pathetic. In large part due the oppression that he saw and experienced as a young child, Arthur Ashe crusaded for social change and racial equality throughout his lifetime. Days of Grace depicts the manner in which Arthur Ashe was "ousted" by USA Today Newspaper and forced to hold a news conference stating that he had HIV/AIDS. Arthur Ashe had received a blood transfusion in the early 80's while undergoing a quadruple bypass. Due to the fact that at that time the blood wasn't tested for HIV/AIDS, Ashe was given contaminated blood. Arthur Ashe reached the heights of the tennis world against all odds and served as an inspiration to millions due to his establishing himself as one of the best tennis players in the world. It is also the story of his struggle with HIV and the social stigma and fear surrounding this disease. It is the story of his awesome love affair with his wife, and the love he shared with his daughter. A quality account, of one of the most successful and great player in his own words. A must read for all the tennis lovers.
