Overview
Learn table tennis tactics from USATT Certified National Coach and Hall of Famer Larry Hodges. Includes tactics against different styles, grips, and surfaces as well as tactical and strategic thinking. The book opens with this: "Tactics isn't about finding complex strategies to defeat an opponent. Tactics is about sifting through all the zillions of possible tactics and finding a few simple ones that work." The book then explores the tactical and strategic development needed to have the specific tactical tools needed in any given match - your "tactical toolbox."

"Larry has done an excellent job in breaking down the skills needed by all players to improve in these areas. This book should be on every table tennis player's mandatory reading list." -Richard McAfee, USATT National Coach, ITTF Trainer, and USATT Coaching Chair, 2009-2013

"Table Tennis Tactics for Thinkers is a must read for any player serious about winning. This tactical Bible is right on the mark, and is exactly how I was taught to put together game-winning tactics and strategies." -Sean O'Neill, 5-time U.S. Men's Singles Champion, 2-time Olympian

"Larry Hodges' book on table tennis tactics is the best I have ever seen on this subject. This is the first book that explains how to play against the many styles of the game." -Dan Seemiller, 5-time U.S. Men's Singles Champion and long-time U.S. Men's Team Coach
