Bib No. 388 – TABLE TENNIS BOOK FOR ANY LEVEL TABLE TENNIS PLAYER

Author : Larry Hodges
Comments : The Amazon website was a little vague as to who was the author of this book and having acquired a copy, I can see why. It is because the author’s name does not appear on front or rear covers, nor in the frontispiece. Neither does the date of publication appear anywhere. However by scouring the pages it is a simple enough matter to deduce that the author is Larry Hodges. The content of the book is helpful, thorough and interesting. Photographs are plentiful and useful, but perhaps a more modern cover photo could have been used, rather than the Gatien one of 25 years ago. I would have preferred the pages to have been numbered and although the ‘Table of Contents’ list shows a section ‘About the Author’, mine is missing. I enjoyed the book, but the lack of some of the finishing detail was a disappointment.

Author : Anne Borrowdale
Comments : A Table Tennis rarity. A full length novel with romance, family intrigues and Table Tennis. I received this enthralling book as a present from my son, who lives near Oxford and used to play in the same Club as this Author. Knowing that I collect TT Books and have a web site you would have thought I might have received a copy a little earlier. Nevertheless thank you Gareth, I still love you, I enjoyed the book and belated congratulations to your club-mate.
