    Excellent book for recreational players, juniors and their coaches

    This is a well-written, valuable book for recreational players and young tournament players. Its essence is playing smart, percentage tennis and making the most of your assets. Specifically, it emphasizes the importance of footwork much more than other instruction books and provides numerous drills to improve your skills. I especially like the Tennis Skills Inventory section, the section on various service return and baseline patterns and the section on when to (judiciously) turn on the power. You learn how a series of relatively small changes can make a big difference in your game. "Tennis Beyond Big Shots" combines strokes, footwork, strategy, mental game, nutrition, physical training to provide a wide variety of excellent informative and advice. I highly recommend it.

    One of the best tennis books ever!

    As a lifelong tennis player, I've read virtually every tennis book written over the past thirty years and I enjoyed Tennis Beyond Big Shots the most! Greg's book is an extremely enjoyable read and I found that I could take his advice to the court, apply it immediately, and see instant improvement. Plus, Greg's views on the social tennis scene and, in particular, tennis parenting, should be required reading for all who play the game. Greg's served up a clean winner with Tennis Beyond Big Shots. Tell all your friends at the club to buy this book ASAP!

    A must read for all tennis players

    A fabulous book! Greg shows players of all levels how they can not only improve their games but make tennis one of the most enjoyable parts of their lives. Greg's conversational style of writing makes it seem as if you're standing on the court right next to him and his straight to the point instruction will make you a better play immediately! Buy several copies of this book. Keep one for yourself and give the rest to your tennis-loving friends.

    Win matches and friends with this perceptive book

    'Tennis Beyond Big Shots' provides plenty of topnotch instruction about strokes and strategy that will help you win matches. This 224-page paperback, spiced with pithy quotes, also gives readers superb suggestions about how to win friends and enjoy your tennis, regardless of the outcome. Its '10 Commandments of Social Tennis' chapter should be posted at every tennis club and center. Especially important is author Greg Moran's commandent to accept your mistakes graciously. 'No matter how badly you may be playing or losing, keep a positive attitude and your excuses to yourself. No one's interested, and you'll only sound foolish,' he advises. My other favorite chapters are 'Two Shots That Deserve Respect,' 'Conquering Our Inner Devil,' 'Three Secrets To Defeat Stinky Feet' (about footwork), and 'Being The Best Tennis Parent Ever.' Recreational players, teaching pros and coaches, aspiring juniors, and tennis parents will benefit considerably from studying this well-written and well-analyzed book that covers both the basics and the fine points of tennis.
