Review

"Like nothing I’ve ever read and all the more wonderful because of it, this is a non-fiction masterpiece which deserves a position on the sports writing podium" (Ben Keenan Press Association Syndication)

"Fast-footed, inspiring book about winning the inner game of life in sport" (Iain Finlayson The Times)

"Erudite, experimental and engaging, Mina di Sospiro has given us a work that breaks new ground in sports writing. Whether or not you ever pick up a paddle, The Metaphysics of Ping-Pong provides an initiation into a visionary life, igniting the fires of inspiration through an intriguing intimacy with the mysteries of daily life that is available nowhere else" (David Metcalfe Daily Grail)

"An enthralling guide to the mystery, mastery and practice of ping-pong" (Eric Idle)

"Excellent" (Publishers Weekly)
