Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you subscribe to the maxim, ‘It's not whether you win or lose, but how you place the blame,’ you'll have some serious fun reading It's Not My Fault. But don't stop there. Put the best of Josh Shifrin's 150 amusingly creative excuses in your tennis bag and use them when you're upset after being upset. My favorite excuse is, ‘My back hurt from carrying my doubles partner.’ What's yours?
--Paul Fein, award-winning tennis writer and author of
Tennis Confidential and You Can Quote Me on That
“A funny and (all too often) accurate portrayal of excuses heard on the tennis court. The perfect gift for an avid tennis fan!”
-Rod Laver, eleven-time Grand Slam singles champion
