Format: Paperback
This book is great for the beginner, intermediate or even an advanced coach/player. No matter what level player the reader is, Kriese gives good advice on getting mentally and physically ready for the game. His advice covers stretching and physical training, advice on how to play the game against many types of players, (ex. players with good forehands and weak backhands, players who are fast and come to the net, etc.), drills to prepare for the game, photos of techniques, diagrams on drills...and I could go on. I've been using this book for almost two years to get tips on drills and techniques as a player/coach. It's helped improve my game and the players I teach. I highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
This book does an excellent job at covering all the aspects of playing and coaching tennis. He divides tennis into 3 parts: the physical, the mental, and the emotional and he covers all three areas well. For example, he writes about your "role" when you play someone: are you the underdog or the favorite (he gives several other roles too)? He explains how to be comfortable with your role and how to excell in your role. He also writes about the different types of player personalities and how to best motivate them as a coach. I thought this book was just great.

Format: Paperback
Contains quite a bit of updated material towards the coaching of tennis. Be most suitable for the high-school coach looking for optimal growth for his teams. It is a necessary reference for the serious tennis teacher or coach who likes to leave no stone unturned to give the best learning to his trainees. Is not misleading but is scientifically correct when it comes to the technical, tactical, physical and mental.

As a lifelong tennis aficionado, I try to read a bit of everything that has to do with the sport. I must say, this is the most thorough and fascinating tennis book. Kriese covers everything that a player needs to know: The fundamentals for beginners and more advanced strategies for professionals. I found the sections on "directionals" (where to place the ball) and "pecking order" (how to play against opponents of different rankings) to be the most helpful. And not only is it informative, but very entertaining as well. Kriese spices the text with personal stories and antidotes that he has collected throughout his long career as a teacher. And it's less than the price of a single tennis lesson.

Chuck Kriese puts together the best of modern tennis in one text. He deftly covers modern stroke techniques, a new system for tennis tactics and excellent motivational advice. A must read for coaches and parents.
