Dick Enberg, CBS and ESPN Sports:
"Loved the book. I've seen Sally Huss play this great game of tennis. She caressed the ball, while fully embracing the experience. Her style and good form are expressed in her EIGHT GOLDEN RULES FOR HOW TO PLAY YOUR BEST TENNIS. It's an extension of her proven championship play. The message in her book is direct, kind, respectful, and in its wondrous simplicity, as sharp as a backhand winner down the line. If I were to start playing again, I'd be best served to read this book FIRST and then GRIP a racquet. Game, Set, and Match, Ms. Huss! Oh My!"
Billie Jean King, 39 Grand Slam Titles, Founder of World Team Tennis:
"Tennis is a lifetime sport and fun for players of all ages. In Eight Golden Rules for How to Play Your Best Tennis, Sally Huss shows you how to get the most out of your game and how much fun playing tennis can be."
Mary Carillo, CBS and ESPN Sports:
"Sally Huss has written a simple, sparkling gem of a book. It is wise and gentle, and gives to tennis players what the great UCLA coach John Wooden gave to basketball players with his Pyramid of Success. If you do what Sally suggests you will be more than a better player; you'll be a better person. Perhaps her book should be called Eight Golden Rules for How To Live Your Best Life."
Peter Smith, Coach USC Men's Tennis Team:
"Sometimes the best advice is the most simple. Sally writes a book of reminders that everyone can relate to and learn from. These are guidelines and rules that I am already using with my team. I think every successful coach uses these. Let EIGHT GOLDEN RULES be your tennis coach for a winning strategy!
