The Tennis Manifesto by Warren Harris
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Tennis Manifesto is a tennis coaching philosophy and motivational phrases and ideas written in quirky, avant-garde, and sometimes dark, abstract ways, and laced with off-beat, whimsical, dynamic, mind-twisting illustrations.The Tennis Manifestouses wrong punctuation and mostly strange and old typewriter fonts.Words that are kind-of thrown on a page, sometimes not many words on a page. Sometimes words are spelled wrong.It gives the reader the impression of some deep-thinking, but eccentric tennis coach, or the crazy homeless guy living under the freeway psycho-babbling all this tennis stuff.A fun and trippy book to own and read.It is not a tennis lesson in a book. It is motivational and inspiring concepts, cryptically funny, and sprinkled with hype-phrases, and abstract, short, one-page stories that make for an intriguing read even if you are not a tennis player.Tennis drives the book, but I feel it bursts out of the traditional "sports book genre square".

Author Biography

I have been coaching tennis for about 18 years.I taught myself to play tennis and only had one tennis lesson in my life.This book came about from me writing down phrases I used to tell my daughter while I was training her to play competitive tennisI have never written a book and don't read much at all, so I made this "diary-type" thing that would intrigue me to read it if somebody else wrote it.The book became increasingly dynamic and strange as I wanted it to show my interest in weird b-movies, beatnik poetry, abstract art, underground music, and at the same time, expressing my knowledge of tennis and out-of-the-box coaching style and concepts and my own tennis dogma.
