The book is packed with information, and although quite readable, does require attention, rather than a fifteen minute skim. But it will repay the effort a hundred times over. It's a LOT better than any human coach I have ever had.
FYI, I am (probably) an NTRP 3.5 player. At least, I was before my new serve and forehand.
All his advice is supported solidly with scientific research and reasoning. So you would never doubt the advice - and hence the confidence.
I hold a lot of respect for Vic Braden. This book is NOT written for the commercial benefit - it is for the love of the game that Vic Braden has.
I strongly recommend this book for any beginner - wanting to put his right foot forward.
Vic Braden has a very pleasant style of writing - this is not a dry instruction book at all. It's a full-of-life, laugh-your-head-off type of book. Its almost like standing on the court - with Vic Braden teaching you to play.
So laugh and enjoy this lovely game - all your life !
knowledge is power though and knowing why you are inconsistent, inaccurate and lack power will be explained. Any book by Vic Braden is a must read for any tennis student of the game.
