Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


Tennis is a complex game, but it doesn't need to be difficult. Occam's Racquet breaks down the game of tennis and shows players how to change their approach to learning and playing the game. Each of the twelve chapters focuses on one area of the physical or mental game of tennis. For the many players struggling to master the "pro game" and modern teaching methods, the techniques in the book will help craft a reliable and consistent game, even for players with limited practice time.

Marcus Paul Cootsona is a tennis teaching professional in Northern California. He began playing tennis at age four and competed in tournaments until college and then began his tennis teaching career. Marcus has taught tennis for the past 29 years to all level players and has developed a simplified, modular approach to understanding the game. During that time he has also been an award-winning tennis specialty store owner, an importer, a retail consultant, a playwright and a screenwriter. Given enough time, he will surely find another career or two to pursue. Currently, he lives in Northern California with his wife and son and with two dogs he is teaching to play.

Praise For…

A new book out on the market that's proving to be a winner. Jody (a pseudonym) writes in an easy to understand language that walks us through the horror that was her life, with hope and encouragement. She has a way of taking the reader step by step through her healing process and understanding of multiplicity and integration. Hers was not an easy voyage and she created her own personal Constitution, rules for survival, from very young and throughout her life, adding amendments as her healing took her deeper into her authentic, joyful self. If you've never used cognitive therapy, Jody shares the exercises that she used, which took her to wholeness and healing in a way that you can easily integrate into your own healing. She helps the reader understand the damage done through abuse, and the natural defenses for survival that need to be recognized in order to move beyond them. This is a must read, easy read, without hidden booby traps of memories to trigger survivors. This is a story of hope, of survival, and of success. -- Amazon.com review
