Praise for Tennis Confidential
“This informative and entertaining collection of previously published features, essays, and interviews provides much to savor. A tennis journalist for 20 years, Fein wishes "to give tennis lovers what they relish — and he delivers.” — Library Journal
"Briskly written, authoritative though not infallible (what is?),
Paul Fein's book is as informative as they come among contemporary
tennis compendiums. You have to be a long-toothed veteran to miss
here the nuanced expertise of writings on tennis. Fein has the writer's
facility to enliven his text with half-page boxes which he titles
'Fascinating Facts.' They're fun... So do add Paul Fein's
book to your tennis bookshelves."
-- Edward T. Chase, Tennis Week
