This is the best book for beginning players I've ever seen. Well-organized, well-written, with large, clear diagrams and photos. The fundamentals and strategies are all sound and clearly explained. Don't be misled by the picture of the book's cover on Amazon, which makes it look like a cheesy home-press photocopy job - the actual book has a full-color glossy cover and is professionally produced in every way. I'll be giving this book to every novice player I play against. Highly recommended.

I was hired to coach racquetball this fall. After playing the game for 25 years I thought that I could do it. Not true! Who knew there were so many rules? Additionally, how you break down a swing and teach it to a novice is not intuitive. Just because you can play the game doesn't mean you can coach the game. I read this book from front to back, then started over, using the words, diagrams, and explanations to coach my very first racquetball team through a semester long class. And I could not be more thrilled with the results- the students all understand how to execute a correct forehand and backhand, a variety of serves, strategy, and more difficult situations like taking a ball off the back wall. Are they perfect? Of course not- we all have strengths and weaknesses. But they have a very good grasp of the game, have most of the basics down, and most importantly they all have a true love of the game. I hope to have turned them on to a fabulous, fun, challenging way to stay fit and active for life. So THANK YOU Dennis- excellent book!

I have played for the better part of two decades at about a C/D level and this book helps tremendously. Not only with game strategies to play better against better players, but the drills to get you there. This book explains many of the small things that can make a big difference. I wish that I had this book when I started playing racquetball. The insight is exceptionally beneficial. This book should be required reading for players that are serious about getting better in racquetball, your game will grow with this book.

I've recently gotten into playing racquetball with my girlfriend, and she's been wanting to know the official rules and strategies of the game since we've been picking up the game slowly as people teach us. I ordered this book for her birthday, and she absolutely loves it! This book has everything you'd want in a racquetball book including complete official rules and strategies.

The Kindle is great for reading but not so useful when looking at figures and charts. The size is partly responsible for the convenience but limits the pictures or drawings. This book is clear and well portrayed. The examples are clear and direct and makes the text even clearer.

If you could only access one work to assist you in developing a decent racquetball game, then this is it. It's perfect for beginners and intermediate players. It's easy to understand and takes everything step-by-step with plenty of graphics.

Sets you straight on the rules and shows you how to play.
I shared the book with my grandson, now he beats me, because he read the entire book!
