Steven White brings twenty-five years of tennis teaching experience to focus on the fundamentals of the game for the young, the beginning, and the improving player. The book allows young readers to learn the basic strokes of tennis from easy-to-follow text, written with a combination of simple and more complex sentences and carefully introducing new vocabulary. The Manga characters not only provide an interesting looking book but the figures illustrate the various strokes and positions the author is describing.
This book is a must for the many children who want to learn the fundamentals of the game and those who are constantly striving to improve their game.
This book could easily be used as a training manual for someone trying to teach tennis -- those people who are good tennis players who would like to teach tennis to their kids, but can't put what they know into words. Also, it would be a great book for adult beginners who are participating in a beginner level instruction course. It could be used as a "text book".

Bring Your Racquet is a resource that any parent or beginning/intermediate player can refer to when they are not on the court with their Pro. Some Pros instruction may differ slightly from the information in the book. None of us teach exactly the same, but 99% of the book is the information that Pros impart to their beginning and intermediate students.
