The Tennis Manifesto is a tennis coaching philosophy and motivational phrases and ideas written in quirky, avant-garde, and sometimes dark, abstract ways, and laced with off-beat, whimsical, dynamic, mind-twisting illustrations.
The Tennis Manifestouses wrong punctuation and mostly strange and old typewriter fonts.
Words that are kind-of thrown on a page, sometimes not many words on a page. Sometimes words are spelled wrong.
It gives the reader the impression of some deep-thinking, but eccentric tennis coach, or the crazy homeless guy living under the freeway psycho-babbling all this tennis stuff.
A fun and trippy book to own and read.
It is not a tennis lesson in a book.
It is motivational and inspiring concepts, cryptically funny, and sprinkled with hype-phrases, and abstract, short, one-page stories that make for an intriguing read even if you are not a tennis player.
Tennis drives the book, but I feel it bursts out of the traditional "sports book genre square".
