Small, yet interesting, book on Arthur Ashe's view of tennis. Several introductions give information about his life and career. The book itself goes over every aspect of tennis, from basic shots, to history, to club play. Sections are kept short and concise, giving main ideas rather than going into minute details. Overall, it makes for a nice and quick read for the tennis fan.
