Book for beginners tennis (meant with no judgment)
This book basically teaches us to be prepared and play to our strengths.
If you played tennis competitively and took it seriously and looking to regain that "game"... this book may not be for you. As a high-school tennis player, i felt as though it was like taking a class of which was previously taken a few times in school.... or something like that.
However experienced we may be it is always good to be reminded about the many points mentioned in this book (hence my overall positive review).
It is of my opinion that one who is already prepared should pick up "The Inner Game."
