By Robert R. Reed on September 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is without a doubt one of the best books on the market that covers the mental part of competitive tennis. It is the only book I am aware of that highlights some of the best aspects of the work of different contributors to the area of mental development in tennis: Tim Gallwey, Jim Loehr, and Karl Slaikeu, to name just a few. I have been teaching and coaching tennis for 35+ years and use bits and pieces from all of these experts. This is truly a great resource!

This book is not perfect but it is by far the best I have read on the mental game. Winning Ugly is also good. My son is 13 and a highly ranked player. He has all the shots but sometimes lags behind in the mental game. He has had some problems closing sets and matches. There is some good info in this book that will help that problem. One can not overemphasize the importance of the mental game, especially at higher levels of play.
