Our local tennis club (Horseshoe Bay Resort & Club) has a very good USPTA pro/teacher, but this video is a great augmentation. We'll be ordering a couple of others in the series very soon, and will post reviews of them as well.
I've seen better analysis for advanced players on slo-motion of Federer's strokes, but for those who are still learning to put a game together, this video is really great -- the distillation of a pro's best stuff in a quick sit-down lesson you'll want to reference again and again (until you're better than he is and that may take awhile). Maybe he can rent a pair of warm-up sweats for the next edition - lol.
The only weak spot is his instruction on the Serve which I don't agree. Tom hits his serve in a way I've rarely seen and not the way I've been instructed before by former top touring pros. Moreover, he only hits one type of serve and doesn't really go into any detail. The USTA and USPTA (yes I am serious about tennis and have seen all the other videos including Bollietteri, Jensen, Annacone..etc. and recommend Tom's over all others on mechanics) both put out good DVDs on how to serve. That said, his Serve video does have good tips such as ball toss.
Mostly geared toward the beginner to intermediate players but helpful for even the most advance players too! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND his DVDs.
