Bib No. 286 – TABLE TENNIS 2000

Bib No. 286 – TABLE TENNIS 2000

Author : Radivoj Hudetz
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.

Bib No. 288 – HISTORY OF US TABLE TENNIS VOL 1

Bib No. 288 – HISTORY OF US TABLE TENNIS VOL 1

Author : Tin Boggan
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 15 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!

Bib No. 315 – TABLE TENNIS FROM A TO Z

Bib No. 315 – TABLE TENNIS FROM A TO Z

Author : Dimosthenis Messinis
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.

Bib No. 317 – THE MIGHTY WALZER

Bib No. 317 – THE MIGHTY WALZER

Author : Howard Jacobson
Comments : A paperback version of Mr Jacobson’s 1999 novel. A different cover picture doesn’t make it any less funny.

Bib No. 289 – SIZZLING CHOPS AND DEVILISH SPINS

Bib No. 289 – SIZZLING CHOPS AND DEVILISH SPINS

Author : Jerome Charyn
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.

Bib No. 291 – TEACHING AND COACHING TABLE TENNIS – KSK SPORTS SERIES

Author : Deepak Jain
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.
