Format: Hardcover
This book goes beyound drills and techniques. As a tennis mom I found practical answers to a variety of my questions. I especially liked the section on choosing and caring for junior racquets, and step-by-step guide to college tennis scholarships. Keith's upbeat, non-judgmental tone and occassional humor makes this a great read.

At my junior tournaments, I am offering copies of "Raising Big Smiling Tennis Kids" instead of t-shirts to participants. Great book for parents and pros.

I loved this book! I have learned more about tennis from a child's point of view than anything else I have read. As a tennis coach for children, this is the best book on the subject and I use the principals for other sports as well. A great and entertaining read!

I wish this book was around years ago (I am now an empty nester, my sons are married). My two sons played the junior tennis tournaments, but are now into golf. There is so much useful information and guidance I wish I had access to when my kids were growing up. Kudos to Keith for a book critically important for any tennis parent.
