Format: Paperback
As a table tennis coach of some 35 years I am always a little sceptical of new books on the subject, however I can honestly say it is one of the best I have read. There is a good overall insight into the sport and it is very much up to date.

I have purchased this in Kindle form because I run 2 TT groups locally and wanted other members to be able to use this as reference. It is very comprehensive, with good photos. Deals in detail with all strokes, types of bat, stance. Everyone can gain knowledge from this book and improve their game whether singles or doubles, beginner or experienced player.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By S. Gale on 5 Nov. 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and it has improved my table tennis no end. I am an intermediate player and have been coached on a number of occasions. I recognise much of the same information in the book from some of my coaching sessions. So, in this regard, this book has provided useful additional information.

The book covers a wide range of topics and is pretty concise - in some sections, I can't help feeling tht it is a little too concise. However, this book is one in a series of sports guides and I suspect that the format of the series has dictated the layout and format of this book. One improvement to the format of the book would be the use of annotated diagrams to explain the different strokes rather than using a series of photographs. These strokes can often be difficult to describe in words and I think the use of diagrams would make them easier to understand. I am not sure that using photographs of different players has helped in conveying the different strokes (although it does illustrate the different playing styles).

All in all, a great book that has helped me improve by playing and understanding of the game. I am sure that I will come back to the book in the future and use it as a reference book. Recommended.
