Loved the book. After many years layoff of playing this book was a real delight and joy. It has helped me some in my game, but age has caught up with me and I now see the ball sailing overhead and I am not moving as fast as before! Really weird! But it is great to teach youngsters the game, and the book is tops for any squash player. Have given it as a gift to several.

I had been toiling in low-level/beginner squash for a year until I bought and read this book. My game saw huge gains after reading this book. Many ideas, basic shots and strategies are summed up in simple, succinct points. I can not compare this book to other squash instructional books as this is the first that I read but for me the proof is in the pudding. I credit this book with being a major factor in breaking me out of the beginner game and propelling me into the ranks of competitive squash. I was playing hack-ball beforehand and afterwards had a far better understanding of basic stroke, hitting for length and basic strategy. The 8 drills that are detailed are good, my only complaint being that they could have included a few more. Bottom line: Invaluable resource for beginners.

Very good book. Explains the basics and gives some more advanced tips.
The only bad comment I have is that it speaks a little too much of differences between hard ball and soft ball squash.

This is, regrettably, a quick makeover of a good book on hardball squash into barely acceptable book on softball squash. For the beginner, it would be a confusing mixture of the two. For an observer, some of the quotes from pros are revealing as to the gaps between the softball and hardball traditions remaining in the USA. For a more complete guide to the game, get "Squash Workshop" by Ian Mackenzie ... or get "Learn Squash in a Weekend" for a brief but technically accurate guide. - Ron Beck, publisher squashtalk.com

I started playing squash recreationally 4 months ago. This book gave me very important distinctions to look at the game: the shots, their placement, moving in the court and specially about strategy of play. I recommend it!
