More About This Book

Overview

There are 24.7 million tennis players in the United States. If you are one of them, you are likely to see yourself and your tennis friends in this hilarious book of tennis cartoons, anecdotes, and witty quotes. If you're not one of them, this book is the perfect gift to cheer up a tennis player who needs some laughs.

The tennis cartoons of 11 cartoonists, including Bil Keane, creator of "The Family Circus," and Charles M. Schulz, creator of "Peanuts," are featured in this volume.

This book is also about the health benefits of tennis played with good humor. "Laughter is good medicine," says Dr. Ellen Rome, a Cleveland Clinic physician who is a tennis player herself, "and if tennis is played for fun and with good humor, the health benefits are even greater."

Here's more proof that vigorous exercise and humor are powerful weapons in the never-ending battle against obesity and depression.

You'll read about the longevity of many tennis players, humorists, and comedians. And you'll be inspired by stories of tennis aficionados who play competitive amateur tennis into their 80's and 90's.

And you'll be introduced to Samra's Law: "The older tennis players get, the funnier they get."
