Editorial Reviews


“For those who like to chase the fuzzy, yellow ball around, Improve Your Tennis IQ is a self-help guide to analyzing and moving to new levels of the game. We game the book to former Colorado junior tennis ace and now Arizona Tennis Association player James Abell of Tempe. His first reactions was, “I wish I would have had this book when I first began playing.” … Abell’s overall take on the book was that it was generally well done with well-illustrated diagrams.”

Sweat, July 2003

    Tennis IQ is nicely written and organized. But unfortunately for me, it was also extremely basic. So, if you want to test yourself on the basic foundations of tennis strokes and tactics, it's a good fit. But if the 'IQ' in the title makes you think this is an advanced and cerebral book, be much more careful- you're liable to be disappointed as I was.
