The Tao of Tennis

Auf Lager
Bob Warden's 'The Tao of Tennis' is an authentic application of the Tao Te Ching in his effort to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary - that is, in his attempt to elevate the game of tennis to become an elegant and compelling way of life. His reading of the text from a uniquely 'tennis' perspective is nuanced and insightful, and his apposite and persistently original interpretations will raise both the eyebrows and a smile from devotees of the king's game as they ponder the wisdom of this antique text."- Roger T. Ames, Ph.D, professor of Chinese philosophy, University of Hawai'i at Manoa."The Tao of Tennis is an intriguing blend of tennis coaching and ancient Eastern philosophy. Bob's adaptation contains nuggets of sage advice, though, as with the original [Tao Te Ching], there are passages that may not seem totally comprehensible to the modern reader. If you can get past this the book is a worthy read. There is certainly much good in it."- Allen Fox, Ph.D, Intercollegiate Tennis Association Hall of Fame player (UCLA) and coach (Pepperdine), and author of Tennis: Winning the Mental Match. If it was totally comprehensible it wouldn't be Tao! This book is a chapter by chapter adaptation of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, the twenty-five hundred year old classic work of Chinese wisdom literature.

The primary one is a broad theory of metaphysics, the traditional branch of philosophy that, according to Wikipedia, "attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people understand the world, e.g, existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility." The second theme concerns how individuals should act so as to be in harmony with the world. The third concerns how to be a leader in harmony with the world. It's important to note that the Tao Te Ching's counsel is pragmatic, not moral
