This is the most practical and well-written book I've read on the mental game. Murray is a sports psychologist. He presents the mental outlook so that it's not to scientific and not to fluffy. I found a lot I could use, especially regarding attention control and imagery.

I don't play tennis. Read this book b/c I thought it would help me w/ life in general--help me, for example, have more confidence, be cooler under pressure, etc. Seems to have pretty good advice. Clearly and concisely written.

Brad Gilbert's book, "Winning Ugly" has better and more blunt, straight up advice on the mental game of tennis. I would recommend that one over Smart Tennis.
