This book covers a lot in the techical development of the game. I think it could have been improved by having more step by step pictures of stroke productions from any of his host of star students rather than just words. My other qualm with this book is that the major reason why people buy it because nick's name is on the cover, it's a shame that there aren't many of his words in the book!

4.0 out of 5 stars top world coach makes it sound easy 7 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Nick Bolletieri is one of the most well known and respected coaches in the tennis world, although he is used to working with the like of Tommy Hass, Xavier Malisse and (in the past) Andre Agassi he manages to find a way of explaining the art of tennis that is simple, clear and seems easy to follow even for mere club standard mortals! He is very to the point and I'm sure that players of all standards will find that their games benefit from his "tips from the top". An extremely valuable addition to anyones tennis library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed instruction with some flaws 7 April 2010
Bolletieri's book provides an abundance of good coaching advice. It is aimed more at tennis coaches than tennis players. All the name-dropping is tiresome as well as advertising for his tennis academy.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Probably the greatest material you can buy if you're interested in Coaching Tennis to a high standard!
400 pages worth of information. It seemed as if I had Nick in my living room explaining more than 4 decades of experience.
What a treat. Thank you Nick Bollettieri for this wonderful handbook.
