13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Tennis Mom on October 1, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like so many products, this book includes information that could be helpful or useless depending on the need. It has standard information found in many other conditioning books that cover a variety of exercises drills used for a wide variety of sports that may or may not include tennis. It uses figurines to demonstrate some of the drills along with pictures of actual athletes. Depending on the individual, this could be a help or an annoyance. Some of the drills are group drills so the usefulness of this book will depend on this need. I train my daughter in an individual setting, so group drills are not relevant for her. However, club coaches might find them to be very relevant and useful.

I have not completed reading the book since so many of the drills are similar to those found in other books that I already use. However, based on the information currently read, I have not found any endorsement of the book by Andy Roddick even though his face is on the cover of this book.

Strengths of this book are as follows: The organization is generally concise. Key teaching points & variations/progressions are helpful sections. There is also a section for proper & improper execution. I don't regularly see this in other books. Therefore, this section provides valuable information. The area & equipment section for each exercise/drill helps organize activities.

In sum, the organization & presentation are very good. However, the content seems fairly standard. Therefore, the usefulness of this book will depend on the needs of the athlete(s) as well as the current knowledge or library resources of the coach/trainer/parent.

Given the other resoueces that I already own, my rating of the book is based on its usefulness to me. However, others may find it very helpful if this is a first resource on the subject.
