[ Donn Olsen] has written a remarkable book called A Principles Approach to Table Tennis. Every table tennis coach in the world can benefit from reading it. The book is, at the same time, one of the most fundamental and advanced books ever written about the sport of table tennis.
What an amazing piece of work! It was as if Hegel wrote about ping pong. The lucid categorizations and hierarchies of organizational principles made utter, immediate and complete sense to me.
