Much more than a tennis memoir,
This review is from: Days of Grace: A Memoir (Mass Market Paperback)
I collect tennis players' biographies, but this was a different category altogether and a complete privilege to read. This decent, educated man shares his philosophical insights on race, AIDS, politics and spirituality. Too bad he never lived to see the presidency of Barack Obama, who I'm sure would have been inspired by this book. It's a shame he's no longer around to mentor the Williams sisters or Tiger Woods. This is an inspirational book by a truly exceptional human being. I have just finished reading it and it's wonderful that the reforms he hoped for in American health care have just been brought to fruit by President Obama.
