I am an older player who competes well at the club level, but I still want to improve and have experienced frustration with my weaknesses. David Ranney's book clearly spells out the techniques required to "get out of your head" and begin to see and hit the ball at a higher and purer level than you have been able to in the past.
What is amazing is that he invites us to visit online and interact with him there, and even goes so far as to offer to individually discuss your progress on a personal phone call, if you choose. I did that and came away with his vision for what I need to do, at my level and with my unique needs, to lift the level of my game.
In just two weeks I am playing a more fluid, controlled and consistent game and I'm thrilled!

The book shipped and arrived on time. There's no other volume though. This is a great book loaded with treasures. I even contacted David to ask about a link in his book and other things, he wrote me a thoruough response the next day. I started practising some of the things mentioned in the book and already see positive changes in my game. I'm happy I got the book and recommended for all tennis players.

David Ranney's "Play Zen-Sational Tennis" is chock-full of lessons designed to improve your ability to play better tennis through gaining a mental advantage. It is the rare combination of a professional who was highly ranked as a player and who has devoted his life to the pursuit of higher levels of tennis for players of all abilities. I've used his tools, his lessons and his insights to improve my own playing as well as sharing this information with my own students. It is equally rare to find a written resource that is so well designed that it virtually guarantees success for every single person who applies the book's content. This book will change the way a player thinks, how they interpret stress and how to handle it under the pressure of competition as well as help the player gain focus on the all-important "Present Focus".

From how to deal with anger, how to fix mistakes while in competition, and how to actually practice mental focus are but a few of the details David offers. No matter what level player you are, this book is definitely for you. There simply is not a single player who won't benefit from the lessons David provides.

I love the game of tennis and the advice in the book will help your game immensely. I have never watched the ball the way I do now and I also can "let go" of bad shots (as you will read - there are no bad shots). Loved the book, reread it all the time and has also helped my golf game!

This book has helped my game more than any other I have read simply from the standpoint of thinking about how to watch the ball. Seems almost too simple but it works and will work for players at all levels. The book is repetitive but in a good way. I plan on reading it again.
