Do yourself a favor Apr 4, 2006
Buy this book then read it , think about it then reread it. I bought the hardcover 10 months ago. I immediately saw I was heading down the wrong road. I completely "stopped" with my child. I knew I was making some mistakes that needed correcting. this book was a godsend. No matter how serious or casual the goals for you child , this book will make you think and help you develop a more positive long term approach. My daughter and I are still extremely involved, we just enjoy it more. Now she drags me to the tennis court. I reread this book every other month. My thanks to the author. enough said
Beautifully and Simply Written Mar 12, 2006
I like the way this book is written. Yes, it's for "kids", but it doesn't read like a child-like book. It speaks to children, coaches and parents in a way that is intelligent, clear and empathetic.
I wish I had read earlier.... Sep 28, 2004
I wish this book was around years ago (I am now an empty nester, my sons are married). My two sons played the junior tennis tournaments, but are now into golf. There is so much useful information and guidance I wish I had access to when my kids were growing up. Kudos to Keith for a book critically important for any tennis parent.
Tennis Kids is a Winner! Jan 19, 2004
I loved this book! I have learned more about tennis from a child's point of view than anything else I have read. As a tennis coach for children, this is the best book on the subject and I use the principals for other sports as well. A great and entertaining read!
Enthusiastic Recommendation from a Pro Nov 15, 2003
At my junior tournaments, I am offering copies of "Raising Big Smiling Tennis Kids" instead of t-shirts to participants. Great book for parents and pros.
