Breaking Back: How I Lost Everything and Won Back My Life by James Blake

James Blakes life was getting better every day. A rising tennis star and People magazines 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 fathers 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 athletes indomitable spirit and his inspiring ability to find hope in the bleakest of times.
