Bib No. 344 – TABLE TENNIS TACTICS FOR THINKERS

Author : Larry Hodges
Comments : All good stuff here.To be able to use all the different tactics described, you would have to be an extremely strong player and master of all the strokes, which very few players can do. However if you study this book, you can select the tactics that are appropriate to your game. Good read and a fine book.

Bib No. 348 – THE METAPHYSICS OF PING PONG

Author : Guidp Mina Di Sospiro
Comments : From the title you might expect a scientific lecture on the coefficient of restitution and the principles of aerodynamics. You would be wrong. It certainly could not be described as a coaching book. A very amusing story of Mr Sospiro’s belated entry into the world of competitive TT. Super story.
