Within 30 pages, this book had made me aware of 2/3 basic problems with my game and given me an insight into how to solve them as well. Each chapter becomes a building block for successive chapters, allowing you to correct basic faults before trying any advanced techniques. At the end of every (all that I've read) chapter there is a table that lists Common errors found within the area being improved and methods to correct them - I FOUND THIS INVALUABLE! If I had to find fault, then I wish there were more pictures/drawings to explain the techniques and drills covered. However this won't detract much from my enjoyment of the book! If you play squash for fun or are a little more serious, this book will have something to help you improve. I only hope the practice goes as well as the theory!!
I bought this book with my first squash racquet, and found it invaluable in learning the game. Each chapter builds upon the last, giving the impression that when you finish the book you won't need it anymore. However, it is a great resource to refer back to when having trouble with the technique of a particular shot. The author could have provided more drills in each section, but then again, there are other books that are dedicated to drills and improving your game. . .this book's focus is on teaching the beginner.
