9780975481073: It's Not My Fault: Or Can a Rabbi's Son Find Happiness as a Tennis Pro

Dan Waintrup never played the US Open and he never made it into the World Tour. His career flourished in high school and college, and landed him in the role of a country club teaching pro. His teaching exploits provide the backdrop for this humorous memoir that reveals how a rabbi's son from Philadelphia with a hankering for Tastykakes chose this line of work and devastated his parents, almost killed himself running his car into a tree, and found the woman of his dreams. One of Dan’s gifts is his ability to laugh at himself and, in turn, allow others to have a laugh at his expense.

From the Author:

This book is the culmination of a dream. I have actually been writing it off and on for over twenty years. It was the convergence of several events that caused me to finally bring this baby to life. The most important of these are things that happened to me below the surface - subtle changes that have caused me to think differently about purpose, accomplishment, and fulfillment. I can honestly say, as I put the final touches on this manuscript, that it's been a helluva ride so far, but the best is yet to come.

About the Author:

Dan Waintrup was born in Abington, Pennsylvania and it was there that he started playing tennis when he was 15 years old. He attended and played on the varsity squad at Temple University before becoming a country club pro in New England. He currently works at an investment firm in Boston and resides in Brookline, Massachusetts with his wife, Linda. It's Not My Fault is his first book.
