For anyone who wants to perform

What made the experience of listening to The Inner Game of Tennis the most enjoyable?

I was surprised at how spiritual it sounds to me. It's there, right underneath the surface. The ending anecdote about being stranded in a snow storm, actually brought tears to my eyes, it was really moving...

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Inner Game of Tennis?

Apart from the above mentioned passage, the description of his teaching style vs the traditional one. So eye opening, gentle, and powerful.

Have you listened to any of Dan Woren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not but for a while, I thought it was the author reading it, he commanded the material so well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The description of self I and self II are so recognizable that it feels like meeting an old friend...yourself, that is.

Any additional comments?

This is the original inner game and I have heard people say that it's the most powerful one. the principles described here are universal to all sports and all activities where performance and pressure play a part, such as for example music. I'm a musician and I'm not going to get the Inner Game of Music. This is the root and the original!

Brilliant (audio)book

Deals with the mental game of tennis so well, from mental attitude towards learning and improving strokes, to your mental approach on court, how counterproductive your 'inner critic' is to your game, and how you should try and achieve 'psychological flow' (ie being 'in the zone'). Particularly good for overly pushy parents coaching their kids who don't realise that berating or yelling at their kids isn't helpful. Highly recommended for any tennis player at any level.

Not Just A Classic! Top Quality Too!

Tim's book is not just a Classic: it is extremely Classy too! A thoroughly excellent read. Tim breaks down the Inner Game and Outer Game with a skilled hand. Many many 'I's have been dotted and 'T's crossed with this one. Awesome read, Tim! Thanks a million!

Success is an Inside Out Job.

Excellent tips

Great for tennis players at all levels.

I liked a lot of the examples and tips.

Can recommend it for most players but keep in mind it's not a technique instruction book.
