"Success is a journey, not an outcome. The doing is often more important than the outcome. Sharing Arthur Ashes words and the way he conducted his life is a better model for students than they see in many contemporary tennis pros, whose short tempers and bad manners are often highlighted in the media. Ashes protests against injustice and apartheid and his efforts to raise awareness of AIDS demonstrate his humanitarianism….[a] candidate for the reference shelf in addition to the biographies section. Be sure to provide access to this volume during Black History Month."

"Steins's biography of Ashe focuses on how the tennis player overcame segregation and racial prejudice to win three Grand Slam trophies and how he fought on behalf of blacks in apartheid South Africa and those suffering from AIDS after the heart problems that ended his tennis career and left him infected with the AIDS virus. In-depth time lines help students understand the significant contributions of the featured subjects….[v]aluable source for student reports."
