Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Paul Fein hits another ace with You Can Quote Me On That."

"Paul Fein is tennis’s answer to John Bartlett. This exhaustive work belongs next to Bud Collins's encyclopedia on your tennis reference desk."

"Out of the mouths of tennis players comes Paul Fein’s wonderful, witty, profound, catty collection of quotations from a who’s who of tennis past and present."

"Paul Fein has collected many of the defining descriptions of the game and its players--things said in anger and awe, disappointment and desperation. To read this book is to visit tennis through the voices of its people."

"You Can Quote Me On That is as fascinating for its historical dimensions as its human revelations. It’s informative and entertaining."

"Started reading and couldn't stop and not just become I'm a tennis writer. There's a lot of wisdom inside and outside these lines. A fair bit of ignorance, too, which only makes the book more interesting. La Rochefoucauld and John Bartlett would have approved. These are maxims for the modern tennis fan."

"You'll laugh and learn when you read You Can Quote Me On That. The players' unfiltered words capture the dramas, rivalries, and passions that make tennis so entertaining and intriguing. This book is a keeper!"

"It's a must for both tennis cognoscenti and all those who enjoy a light and entertaining read."

"Paul Fein collects the most colorful tennis wit and wisdom through the ages in a book that offers inspiration, insight, and cover-to-cover laughs."

"Whether they’re glad or mortified to have said whatever, Paul Fein wasn’t going to let such good quotes get away from us."

"Irresistible reading . . . You Can Quote Me On That provides a fascinating commentary on a sport packed with human drama--a worth addition to anyone's tennis library."

"Paul Fein delivers the gems. . . . compelling."

"Longtime tennis journalist Paul Fein has compiled about 1,700 of the sport's best quotes, ranging from poignant observations to outrageous blasts from tennis stars and celebrities alike. The collection leaves no doubt that today's talent knows how to serve up a sound bite."
