"I don't know Tennis-but I know Funny. This book is Funny." -- Valerie Cavanaugh, former Senior Executive, United Paramount TV Network

About the Author

Herb Rosenthal is a writer and visual communicator with a life-long addiction to tennis. He has a shelf full of silverware to show for his playing days. He also has an eye for the amusing habits and foibles of his fellow tennis players-and has previously set these forth as a humor columnist for Tennis West and as a regional editor for Inside Tennis.

Not only is the author a top tennis player but a gifted writer. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this collection and bought all my tennis friends a terrific gift. If you haven't read Herb Rosenthal's columns, buy this book!

This is a terribly funny book! Though I am buying it for all the tennis freaks on my Christmas list, you don't have to know anything about tennis in order to enjoy it (although it helps to know something about people!).

I laughed until my sides hurt. I highly recommend it for anyone, even if they have never picked up a tennis racket. Loved this book.
