I have a Masters in Applied Stats, and I found the content in chapters 1 - 12 very hard to follow. That said, I'm not mathematically fluent. For example, Chapter 6 introduces the Generalized Method of Moments, and the illustration demonstrated the value of this. However, I could not follow the idea any further once the authors went into detail, or extended the idea in subsequent chapters.
So, for a general audience, 3 stars. A mathematically literate reader would probably give it a higher rating. The authors clearly enjoy tennis; it's just a pity I couldn't understand.
The authors have published several academic articles on tennis. This presents new ideas and concepts that for the most part don't directly address gambling questions. However, the methods and approaches they use to attack problems will be of interest to anyone trying to do a precise quant-based analysis of anything in tennis.
No book on tennis comes close to this. I'd recommend it to anyone that enjoys watching tennis, or is considering modeling it.
