James Blake’s book cover released! (PIC INSIDE)

Former Top-5 player James Blake recently announced that he will have a new book coming out in a couple of months. The name of the book is – “Ways of Grace: Stories of Activism, Adversity, and How Sports Can Bring Us Together” About the Book Inspired by Arthur Ashe’s bestselling memoir Days of Grace, a collection of positive, uplifting stories of seemingly small acts of grace from across the sports world that have helped to bridge cultural and racial divides.

James Blake has experienced the effects of racism firsthand—publicly—first at the U.S. Open, and then in front of his hotel on a busy Manhattan street, where he was tackled and handcuffed by a police officer in a case of "mistaken identity." Though rage would have been justified, Blake faced both incidents with dignity and aplomb.

In Ways of Grace 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 also recently unveiled the book cover.
