Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9Ashes work ethic and strength of character, instilled at a young age by his father, served him well throughout his life and professional career. In addition to his outstanding tennis firsts, Ashe will also be remembered for his battle with AIDS, his stance against apartheid in South Africa, his struggles against the racism he encountered professionally and personally, his patriotism, and the many tennis camps he sponsored for underprivileged children. However, the emphasis of this biography is on his many tennis accomplishments rather than on his role-model/modern-hero qualities. This book is well documented with chapter-by-chapter source notes and has an extensive index. The black-and-white photographs are well chosen and support the written text; however, one caption mixes up John McEnroe and Ashe. An additional purchase where there is a need for biographies detailing athletic prowess.Lynda Short, Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, Lexington, KY
