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. 324 – KILLER PING – PONG – SURVIVING LIFE AT HOME

Author : David Lawrence
Comments : One of those infuriating little books that you buy anticipating a content largely about Table Tennis. This one is a teenage humour of questions and answers batted to and fro between parents and their offsprings. Only a passing reference to our game.
