About this title


Uses the tools of systems thinking to teach the fundamentals of tennis, describes the physics behind tennis, and stresses the importance of balance, timing, and concentration

From Library Journal:

Clark (engineering, George Washington Univ.), teaches "systems thinking" and applies the principles of physics and mental discipline to the game of tennis. He emphasizes the components of "balance, timing and concentration" as keys to improved playing and writes "to really learn tennis you need to explore it in your mind." Appropriately, the first half of his book is about the mental aspects of the game. The second half covers basic and advanced techniques and provides drills with accompanying photos. While comparable to Timothy Gallwey's The Inner Game of Tennis ( LJ 6/1/74) and John Yandell's Visual Tennis ( LJ 5/15/90), Clark's book is more helpful for the advanced player who has reached a playing plateau. Recommended for sports collections.
