Anyone who has played tennis will appreciate this book. We've all found ourselves on one side or the other of the situations eh describes, and it's great to recall how we handled them. I hope the author continues to gather more material for another book. I look forward to trying some of these tricks against my opponents soon--I just hope they don't get the book before then.

The author tried to be funny, but this is not a very funny book. I play tennis a lot and bump into some of the situations described, but over all the jokes are predictable, grossly exaggerated, or uninteresting. The "Latin" phrases were so corny I wish the author hadn't included them. I'm sorry to say the idea was promising, but the result was very disappointing.

I just picked up the book and think it is hilarious. The author's "twist" on the rules of tennis is quite clever and very witty. A great jab at all those tennis great wannabes; I should know I am one of them. Great illustrations

I've read mine over and over again, and find it to be the finest novelty tennis book in existence. Makes a perfect gift for the tennis buff in your life. Buy one for the house, the car and the tennis club.
