Fox is a former Davis Cup competitor and current tennis coach at Pepperdine. While his qualifications are excellent, his presentation here is confusing and frustrating. The diagrams that he employs seem more suitable to a geometry text than a how-to book. Fox uses angles and court positions to explain winning (or losing) routines. He tries to address both the beginner and advanced player, which results in short service to both. While the sections on mental strategies and game psychology are informative and helpful, they are too rare. Not recommended.- J. Sara Paulk, Concord P.L., N.H.
