Must read tennis/sports books (part 1)

August 1, 2016

 

Hi all, so i recently decided to share some of my tennis/sports performance books collection. I have a small but very interesting collection. So far I have read all of them but two ZEN Tennis & Legacy.

Here is the list of my tennis books collection:

1. Winning Ugly by Brad Gilbert

2. The Tennis Drill Book

3. Fit to play tennis

4. Ultimate Conditioning for Tennis 

5. Tennis Anatomy by Dr. Marc Kovacs

6. The Lombardi Rules

7. The Inner Game of Tennis

8. The Art of Peace by Morihei Ueshiba

9. 7 Keys to Being a Great Coach by Allistair McCaw

10. ZEN Tennis by Bill Scanlon

11. Legacy by James Kerr

12. USTA Mental Skills and Drills Handbook by USTA

There is more to come. I have just finished reading the highly anticipated "7 Keys to Being a Great Coach" by of the people I am looking up to as a coach, professional and a person - Allistair McCaw.

Here is a short review of the book:

"I really don't know where to start from because people above me have pretty much said everything that I was going to but I will try to add a few more things from my perspective as a tennis coach.
I will start by saying that I started following Allistair 2 years ago and have never missed a single quote that he has posted on his facebook page. I have used a lot of his inspirational materials during my lessons and team practices. I will not go into details about the book but I will say this: If you really take yourself seriously about being a coach that wants to make a difference in someone's life, you should most definitely get a copy of this book. After all coaching is all about making a difference in the athlete's life.
The amount of the information based on his experiences that Allistair has shared with us in his book is priceless, it's an endless gold mine. I am looking forward to meeting him soon and hopefully get a chance to ask him a few questions.
Thanks for sharing all this with us Allistair !! "

 Next book that I will have a review on would be "ZEN Tennis" by Bill Scanlon.

Thank you all for reading this. Please if you have any suggestions for tennis/sports books PLEASE go ahead let me know, I would love to read and review them ! Thanks !
