The Inner Game of Tennis: One of Bill Gates All-Time Favourite Books



The timeless million-copy phenomenon that provides not only the key to peak performance in tennis, but the secrets to success in life itself

'Groundbreaking . . . I still give it to friends today' - Bill Gates

Described by Billie Jean King as her 'tennis bible', Timothy Gallwey's international bestseller has been essential reading for players of all abilities since it was first published in 1974.

Instead of concentrating on how to improve your technique, Timothy Gallwey starts from the understanding that 'every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game'. The former is played against opponents on the court, but the latter is a battle within ourselves as we try and overcome self-doubt and anxiety. It is often won or lost before a ball has been hit.

In his revolutionary approach, built on a foundation of Zen thinking and humanistic psychology, Gallwey will teach you how to trust the intuitive wisdom of your body and achieve a state of ‘relaxed concentration’. With lessons on gamesmanship and breaking bad habits, it is no surprise that Gallwey’s method has had a far-reaching impact both on and off the tennis court.

Whether you want to win at tennis, write a novel, get ahead at work, or simply unwind after a stressful day, Gallwey shows you how to tap into your utmost potential. No matter your goals, The Inner Game of Tennis gives you the definitive framework for long-term success.
