This is a long book but not very well organized. The first part deals with the bolettieri academy. It reads like promotional literature, from which it was probably taken. Next is grips. The grips recommended in this section differ from grips recommended when he discusses specific strokes (whats up with that?). Next come specific strokes. If you can imagine, there is not a single picture in the any of the chapters on serve, backhand, forehand, volley and specialty shots. Let me repeat, not a single picture! Nick references his video series, which would be absolutely mandatory viewing to make sense of the confusing text. A short drill section and some tips on buying and stringing racquets follows. A long section on the mental approach to tennis concludes the book. This book should have been exceptional given the authors experience and success but unfortunately, as a stand alone without the videos, it leaves something to be desired. At the very least, this book is of almost no value for beginners. I would recommend Tennis 2000 by Vic Braden as a much better and clearer choice. For advanced players interested in stroke production, the videos may be a better investment, though I have not seen them. At least this book is not too expensive, but it is hard to say much beyond that in the way of praise.
