Format: Paperback
Provides the tools of mental toughness in a format which is incredibly fun and enjoyable to read. Extremely useful for both juniors and adults.....anyone who want to raise the level of their game. This book would be an ideal "team book" for coaches to provide to their players, so that each can develop/adapt their own personal approach to mental toughness. This book is a winner!

I bought this last fall for my fall high school players and they passed it around so much it eventually disappeared, so I am ordering two more. An easy to read story of how to improve in tennis competition.

Format: Paperback
My daughter would not put it down. She immediately used ideas from the book to improve her performance in tournament play. She came off the court excitedly telling me about how she had dealt with negative self-talk, as well as improvements in her visualization and concentration. She was having more fun and playing better! (She beat a girl soundly in straight sets that just weeks before had beaten her.)

Solid sport psychology concepts in an engaging format. I didn't put the book down until I was finished with the last page! Tennis players of all ages can relate to Tony and learn with him as he develops his mental game.

Format: Paperback
I am a mother of an avid junior tennis player.
He is serious and loves the sport.
He is a competitor! However, he needs mental toughness. I was referred to Vision Tennis by a wonderful coach name Bruce. My son was hooked. He could not set the book down. He would bring the book in his tennis bag, read before bedtime, in the car and everywhere. The stories were the best. The wisdom of the author, Michael Zosel, assisted in turning his match around from losing close matches to winning. He likes to retell the stories and advice from the book during meals and car conversations. I highly recommend Vision Tennis. It makes a great gift. Any players can translate this to other sports as well. I hope Zosel writes a sequel.
Thank you!
