When reading this book, you really get a sense that Vasquez Jr knows exactly what he's talking about, which is really reassuring. With praise from almost every tennis legend out there (think Martina Hingis, Andre Agassi etc) you'd think that Vasquez Jr has a lot to live up to in this book.
Well, he does; but he does it with style. The games he presents in his book are simple but brilliant. He grounds the games in real scientific reasoning (eg. this game helps to develop balance etc) but makes them fun. He guides you through each skill and each game like he was there coaching you.
This is a great book to just have fun with and dip into when you need to. Vasquez doesn't preach to the reader but invites us to pick and choose which of the 150 ways we think will help the tennis of our kids. A fantastic book!!!
