Ways of grace : stories of activism, adversity, and how sports can bring us together by James Blake( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like many people of color, Blake has experienced the effects of racism firsthand: first at the U.S. Open, and then in front of his hotel in Manhattan, where he was tackled and handcuffed by a police officer in a case of "mistaken identity." Here he reflects on his experiences and explores those of other sports stars and public figures who have not only overcome adversity, but have used them to unite rather than divide. He reveals how, through seemingly small acts of grace, we can confront hatred, bigotry, and injustice with virtue-- and use it to propel ourselves to greater heights
Breaking back : how I lost everything and won back my life by James Blake( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Blake's life was getting better every day. A rising tennis star and People magazine's Sexiest Male Athlete of 2002, he was leading a charmed life and loving every minute of it. But all that ended in May 2004, when Blake fractured his neck in an on-court freak accident. As he recovered, his father'who had been the inspiration for his tennis career'lost his battle with stomach cancer. Shortly after his father's death, Blake was dealt a third blow when he contracted zoster, a rare virus that paralyzed half of his face and threatened to end his already jeopardized career. In Breaking Back, Blake provides a remarkable account of how he came back from this terrible heartbreak and self-doubt to become one of the top tennis players in the world. A story of strength, passion, courage, and the unbreakable bonds between a father and son, Breaking Back is a celebration of one extraordinary athlete's indomitable spirit and his inspiring ability to find hope in the bleakest of times
