It isn't out of print. You can get it at [...] What's nice about this one is that it is simple enough for beginners and non-analytical types to get what they need to know without being overwhelmed by detail, and deep enough that advanced players can get new information (especially on tactics) and prioritize what they already know. Check it out if you can.

I took the advice of the previous reviewer, and decided to order the book from the number on the web site. Sure enough, the people at Peter Burwash International were eager to help, and I received the book soon after calling.
In short, the book was excellent. Every area/stroke of the game was covered with simple yet effective information, including such topics as understanding the game, how to gut out a match, how to play on clay, and even how to beat left-handers.
I have played tennis most of my life, and even taught the game on occasion, and I have never come across a book as useful as this one. No matter what level you are as a player or coach, this book will raise your level immediately.
Tennis for Life will be a very strong addition to anyone's tennis book collection.

This book was recommended by a friend at the tennis court as a must-have classic, and it did not disappoint us in the least.

This book is one of many tennis books I have read over the years but, it is truly the only book I was ever able to finish. Many of the other books were not only boring but, often the mechanics, theories and strategies were confusing.
The beauty of this book is that it allows for individual styles. Many times we are taught or forced to copy an individual stroke or strategy but, tennis is a game not a mathematical problem.
I found myself being able to relate and felt as if the "old school tennis" chains were released. Burwash allows the freedom to be an individual player with their own flare. Thank goodness!
