5.0 out of 5 stars It changed my whole way of thinking. 7 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is, without any doubts, this is the best book I have ever read on the mental part of the game. Brad, one of the best coaches in the world today(he has been coaching Agassi since he fell to #141 and now he is #2 in the ATP ranking). His strokes were ugly and so was his style but he kept winning all because he was tough mentally. This book explains every aspect of the game from a mental point of view. Read it, and believe it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for strengthen your team's thinking 8 Sep 2000
By Priscilla Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Brad's book is very helpful if you're a player or a coach. I share bits and pieces of his strategy with my high school team and their mental approach to the game has improved tremendously. Brad touches on every aspect of the game and gives you reasons why you should do certain things. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I'd read it when I was captain of my high-school team. 1 May 2000
By William S. Kalenborn - Published on Amazon.com
It's a part of the game I never knew existed when I played competitive tennis. I read it several years ago when it came out, and it's stuck in my mind.
Any great player can win at the top of his game. It takes a champion to be able to win ugly. It's Emmanuel Lasker's style of chess ... fight by making the opponent play the game he's least comfortable with instead of insisting on winning with your game when it's not at its peak.
