He was U.S. singles champion 5 times and doubles champion 11 times, winning 8 years in a row.

Format: Paperback
I am a Singaporean. You do not find many books on Table Tennis on sale here. So when I went to London, I bought 3 different books. Of the 3,I found the book by Dan Seemiller the most comprhensive and informative.
Before, I had a lot of problems initiating an attack against opponents who utilise heavy underspin pushes and chops. Dan's book helped me master the skill of looping against underspin and thereby allowing me to initiate the attack. I found that a lot of players are not able to counter the spinny arch loop. As a result, I am more confident of my strokes and have moved a couple of rungs above my opponents.
I would like to recommend this book to all who wish to improve and perfect their game of Table Tennis.

I play competitive table tennis in Oxfordshire. I have accumulated quite a collection of books on table tennis skills over the years, and this is one of the more informative and readable ones. It is written in plain English, and is neatly divided into suitable chapters covering basic skills, practice routines, tactics, fitness and psychology, etc. If you are a fan of the sport, and enjoy playing and reading about it, this book ought to be added to your collection. When I was a teenage table tennis player, very many years ago, I bought a book by the then English champion Desmond Douglas. I don't know if that book is still available, but if you can get hold of a copy, that too is a very good read.
