Many people will say 'It's impossible to have too much information about a subject' or 'Better to have too much than too little'. Well the problem,(if I can call it that), with this particular book is that nearly 90 pages at the end of it are spent giving details of a)Maiden names of Prominent Married Lady Competitors? Who really wants or needs to know or for that matter is interested? b)Patrons, Presidents, Secretaries, Chief Executives etc? Who really cares? The results of EVERY Mens and Womens Singles match played FROM 1877 until 1986 with full scores plus some other results. Is it essential to know all these facts? OK if you are going to make it your 'Specialised Subject' on a Quiz Programme but otherwise I personally would have much preferred these pages to have been used to show more photographs from matches or perhaps of individual players whether championship winners or not.
What I DID LIKE about the book was the was it gave a 'World History Lesson' of the decade it was covering or had covered which was very interesting as was all the information about the early days about how 'The Championships' came into being. Also the Biographies of the players gave just enough detail to make it interesting and those photos in the book are accompanied by sufficient text from a someone who is a very knowledgeable writer on the subject.
