Easily the most ambitious tennis book written by an American author in a while. The most comprehensive tennis instruction books are those produced by the DTB (German Tennis Federation) and the ITF (International Tennis Federation: Advanced Coaching, Strength and Conditioning, etc). The author provides hundreds of tips and technical information. There are accompanying photos (most small but still in color) including some very original ones (e.g., Sergei Bruguera with a backboard marked off for passing shots)! The photos include many players over the past 50 years representing the best collection in an instructional book. The technical tips come at you furiously. But perhaps it is a bit too much informational overload. There are some technical errors that take a very discriminating expert to find. For example, the serve is well-explained but the author takes a rather narrow view of endorsing a low toss (e.g. as low as 13"). Most experts on the serve would not endorse this method. The author may want to check other sources. He quotes Vic Braden who used to endorse the low toss but doesn't claim it as the bible anymore since Howard Brody suggested that the "ideal" toss is 18" past your contact point. He also endorses the straight toss but against the circular toss -- actually many pros use the circular toss to produce greater rotation and spin. It is suggested that in the kinetic chain, the server should stop the shoulders to allow the arm to accelerate forward. However, the majority of touring pros decelerate at the hips and the shoulders do go forward and turn. In short, there are flaws. In addition, the author also suggests that the two-handed backhand be hit with the left hand dominating and with the left elbow straight but the right bent.Read more ›

Terrific book with tons and tons and tons of instruction in the form of tips and tricks. The title is apt. Also filled with hundreds of color photos of the legends (illustrating strokes etc...) from the 70's through 90s. This is the type of book you don't read cover to cover but pick up again and again to read snippets. Highly recommended.

When I haven't played for a while I frequently come back to this book to visualize what I need to do to get back into tennis
