As a former college tennis player, I felt identified with all the advise Gilbert gives.

Darned good, short, book for anyone who wants insight into the world of professional tennis, particularly Andre Agassi, but covering lots of other players as well. It combines personal experience with personal growth in facing the adversities of life, triumphing over them. It's a good book for anybody who wants to encourage themselves, or someone else to be all they can be. (Sounds like an Army commercial--doesn't it)
