Booklist Review

A thoroughly delightful guide to just-past-prime-time tennis. Unlike so many other books of its kind, this one doesn't come across as omniscient but rather as chattily helpful. The author's insights into the joys of athletic participation are personal, obviously heartfelt, and provide a firm foundation for his "keep playing" exhortations. Schwed offers advice on conditioning, equipment, injuries, strategies, and gamesmanship in a conversational, enjoyable style. Ultimately, his goal is to make the game more fun for seniors by convincing them that even if youth has passed, the joys of tennis remain constant. An ace, all the way. --Wes Lukowsky
