Top Customer Reviews
Using tennis as a vehicle, Ng creates a blueprint for achieveing your goals in any field. He knows what he's talking about - Ng has won awards in art and is an accomplished musician as well as a medical student and Big 10 tennis champ.
Using well-placed quotes from authors, political leaders, and even chess players, Ng makes his book fun to read without being preachy. He explains how he came back from a 3-year slump to reach the top of his game, so the book gives you the perspective of what it's like to start from the bottom as well as the top.
The fundamentals are there too: the book covers all aspects of the tennis game and even physical fitness drills and mental techniques. But this is not a beginner's guide, so be sure you are well versed in the game before picking up the book.
As a manual, "Lure" succeeds admirably. But perhaps even more importantly, it provides insights from mind of a
high-achiever and something we can all aspire towards.
I can appreciate the value of what this book has to offer. I wish I read it when I was younger.
