Whether you play tennis or are thinking about gifting this book to someone who does, you can't do much better than Occam's Racquet. Marcus Cootsona has written a beautiful treatise on life and its meaning through the prism of the tennis game. You are in for a treat. Cootsona delivers true life gems with his unique style of wit and humor.
And if you are very serious about your tennis game and are wondering whether this read is worth your time, you should know that Marcus' understanding and love of the game is first class. His advice is classic and true. I'm privileged to take private lessons from another classically trained coach. My coach was a highly successful player at Stanford and in the ATP tour. I must say that I could not find a single area of discrepancy between Marcus and my own coach advice and approach to the game.
So if you find yourself wondering why tennis occupies so much of your time and preoccupies you so much. Or if you like the strategic and problem-solving dimensions of the game, or if you just can't stop spending ridiculous amounts of money in tennis lessons and funny-looking and color-matching outfits and other gear, this book will provide some solace.
Marcus like Virgil in "Dante's Inferno" makes an excellent guide to get you through the confusing and at times hellish worlds tennis players are known to construct inside their own heads...
I hope you enjoy Occam's Racquet as much as I did.
