WARNING!! If you want to coast through life and not know your true potential DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!! I Highly recommend buying this book! I'm very pleased with my purchase. Rick Macci is sharp, his hand is constantly on the pulse of tennis and he is at the top of his game now more than ever! All of his past experiences and his natural born gift of coaching, entertaining, and truly wanting the best for others is on full display in this book. I knew this about Rick Macci before I read the book because my son and daughter attends his academy in Boca Raton Florida. This book is like Mcdonalds giving up the secret to their French fries!! Ricks recipe to success in life and on the tennis court is in this book, great buy! This book is entertaining, informative, and gives great insight to situations that were never explained before and told by Rick Macci himself! I knew Rick Macci was the best and "one of the guys" from the first email I received from him. A very cool, funny, approachable, and good guy! Rick Macci transcends tennis lessons into life lessons like nobody else! A unique and rare coach who works his butt off to get the best out of himself and his students! Ive seen it firsthand with my son and daughter at his Academy. Rick has the keys to life and success and their in this book! I knew Rick would be great for my kids but I never thought I would learn so much through the process as well. A must have!!

Macci Magic is full of amazing stories from cover to cover. For example, Rick Macci began training Venus Williams when she was 10 years old. After 4 years of training with Rick (and no junior tournament play), Venus competed in her first pro tournament and beat No. 57 in the world. Then, at age 15, Venus landed a $12 million contract with Reebok.

In Macci Magic, Rick shares his experiences teaching Andy Roddick, Maria Sharapova, the William Sisters and more. Now, tennis players from around the world fly to Boca Raton, Florida to take lessons with Rick Macci.

If you want to achieve greatness at tennis or anything else in life, read the Macci Magic chapter called "Flip It."

Important things I've learned from Rick Macci:
Attitude determines altitude
Winners find a way, losers make excuses
Enjoy the battle
The strong get stronger, the weak get weaker
The mind is either for you or against you
It's OK to get knocked down, what happens next says it all
Hit the ball with NO FEAR

Rick Macci is wired for greatness. While reading his book, some of his magic rubbed off on me. Hope it does for you too.

Good guy, great stories! While he tries to make this a motivational book, this is about the tennis stories to me and the book is 75% comprised of these stories. He is most famous for coaching the the Williams sisters and confirms what great kids they are. But he also coached Roddick, Jennifer Capriati, Mary Pierce, Tommy Ho and Maria Sharapova. Many with the same "non storybook" ending. There is another girl named Viele which is also a great story involving Donald Trump who he speaks very highly of.

Overall, this is a very fast, very enjoyable read I recommend to anyone with an interest in tennis.

This book is a great insight into the life of Rick Macci and what makes him tick. After reading about his life, I can see how he has been able to extract such greatness out of his top former players. His motivation is off the charts, especially in his "Maccisms". No, I didn't get a tennis lesson out of this book - I received a far greater lesson - a lesson in how to get the most out of myself and others that I am coaching as well. Thanks Rick.
