Competitive badminton is to the backyard version as the National Football League is to coed touch. This informative, organized, and evangelistic guide to the sport won't transform readers into Olympic champions, but it will help serious players step far beyond the family-barbecue league. Opening is a brief history of the sport as well as the rules and the court dimensions. Also attended to are equipment selection and such basics as racket grip, positioning, footwork, and shotmaking. Singles, doubles, and mixed-doubles are presented in terms of both rules and strategy. There's even an obligatory chapter on badminton gamesmanship. The simple black-and-white line drawings enhance the text. A glossary and national list of badminton clubs and organizations are appended. If you need a badminton how-to, this is the one to buy. Wes Lukowsky
