Library Journal Review

These handy how-to texts from the ``Play the Game'' series have a strict format. Each opens with a history of the game and its development, followed by segments on equipment, terminology, general guidelines, rules, and techniques. Extensive use is made of step-by-step drawings and diagrams to illustrate the various executions of the respective games, including the chops, spins, and lobs of table tennis; the throws, holds, and grappling techniques of judo; and the serves, smashes, and blocks of volleyball. Another common feature is a list of useful addresses. All three entries are clear and concise, serving nicely as basic introductions. Appropriate for both YA and adult collections.-- William H.
