The Tennis Parent's Bible is comprehensive reference "go to" guide for problem solving. This inspirational book contains many different styles of instructional writing including narration, tales of profound wisdom and motivational stories full of deep insight. The Tennis Parent's Bible addresses the importance of fundamental stroke production, nutrition, physiology, proper equipment and off-court training, but it is not intended to be a manual for such topics.
The book sections are designed to be read in any order, in many different settings and independently of each other. This stand out, organizational manual is designed to assist parents and coaches through the mental and emotional complexities of raising a world class young adult through the game of tennis. Included are foundation essentials, blunders and cures, common and not so common questions and answers, difficult problems and their solutions. As a bonus, a customized evaluation is included. The book concludes with a list of invaluable tennis resources.
"The Tennis Parent's Bible is a must read for any competitive tennis family. This book should be on each parent's night stand and in every coach's racket bag. Frank has truly captured what the parent of an aspiring athlete needs to know."
Craig Tiley. Tournament Director, Australian Open Director of Tennis, Tennis Australia
"Frank is quickly becoming one of the games most respected and influential teachers. As the coach of a top 5 WTA player, I recommend The Tennis Parent's Bible to anyone serious about developing a champion."
Sam Sumyk, Coach of Victoria Azarenka # 4 on the WTA World Tour
"Frank is a skilled lecturer & a top teacher. Now as an author, Frank has written one of the most important developmental books I've seen in my 60 years of teaching. This should be required reading for every inspiring parent, player or coach!"
Vic Braden, The Vic Braden Tennis College
"There are few people who have earned as much respect in the tennis world. Frank is a positive visionary."
Dick Gould, Stanford University (The most successful coach in college tennis history)
"A world class book written by a world class coach. This is a book that every junior parent needs to read."
Peter Smith USC Men's Tennis Coach, Current 3-Time National Champions
"Frank is one of the most knowledgeable tennis coaches in the country. He has written, in my professional opinion, the best and most comprehensive tennis book for parents that I've read in my 55 –year tennis career."
Desmond Oon, Ph.D., Former Davis Cup Coach (Republic of Singapore), Author, Master Pro USPTA

"Frank's work is positive, constructive, enlightening, liberating, and best of all fun."
Billy Martin, UCLA Men's Tennis Coach
"Frank Giampaolo has been a featured speaker at our Quiksilver/Roxy National Junior tournament many times over the past eight years. His seminars are well attended by the parents/players/coaches, and his interactive style allows for open discussion. This is an important difference between Frank and almost ANY other 'expert' on tennis and tennis parenting: Frank knows there is not a one-size-fits-all approach! His candor and ability to tailor his techniques to the individual personalities (and how to determine which personality we're dealing with) is spot-on. As a professional counselor myself, I have the highest respect for his accuracy and student-centeredness in dealing with individual and family issues in the athletic setting. I highly encourage everyone to hear him speak and find out why he is so successful."
Annette Broersma, M.S Las Vegas, Nevada (Organizer of the Quiksilver/Roxy and Dunlop Junior Championships (Level 3); and College Sports Placement Counselor)
Our son plays competitive tennis for about 3 years now. He recently turned 11 years old, I am sure Frank's advise and guidelines helped us work with our son to enable him to end last year's season as #2 in Southern California (SCTA).
I am looking forward to continue to use this book for the many years to come. Actually, I am also looking forward reading Frank
So I began to research, looking high and low, buying dozens of books, talking about being -In the Zone- o
