Comments : Sub titled ‘Technique with Vladimir Samsonov’ and a book that is worthy of the World’s No. 1 player. In my opinion this is the best TT Manual written up to this time. But if it’s anecdotes, TT yarns and action photos you’re interested in, then best try elsewhere.

Comments : WOW! A monumental work, brilliantly fashioned with anecdotes, memorabilia, photos, and all manner of goodies. What more could you want. A good read, even for a limey. I believe the ‘History’ is now up to about 20 volumes (and still more to come) but at a high cost. I am afraid my finances will not run to buying every volume. If you want a real memento just look who did the printing and the typesetting – beat that!

Comments : The English language version of the Greek book(1997) by the National Coach of Greece. Some good stuff here, a good technical book. However I found some of the practice exercises hard to understand I suspect something was lost in translation – they didn’t do Kalinikos Creanga too much damage.

Comments : The author chronicles his love affair with TT, and some of it’s legendary players. A great read for the older aficionados, but my 17 year old TT nut, found it all a drag. Personally I can’t wait for the next one.

Comments : Anecdotes, superb photos, and captivating TT stories of the game and it’s best ever players. What a book. Well worth the expensive price of about $35

Comments : Good basic content, well suited to the beginner but short on the techniques required for the advancing champion. Spoilt by the absence of photos. This book is identical to Bib no.297 except for changes in Cover and Title.
