    TT instruction books?

    Hi all
    Whats the best TT instruction book, obviously not to replace face to face coaching but
    to compliment it?
    Thanks

    I would not consider myself being well knowledged on this subject. But I found this book and have read most of it, for the beginner/intermediate stage I think this is a great book to start out with.

    I have not read these, but the books by Larry Hodge seems to have good reputation:
    http://www.tabletenniscoaching.com/larryhodgesbooks
    and there is also these:
    http://www.allabouttabletennis.com/t...nnis-book.html

    All of them probably contain good information, but I wouldn't know which is the best and wether there excist better...
    I would imagine the best TT books comming from china (although Japan and Korea would probably contain well knowledged books as well) those would probably contain the highest level of understanding, in depth analysis etc. but, that would require translating...
    On the basic level the books above seem great though.

    Anyhow, Good luck!

    I actually think video stuff may be more useful.

    I agree about video point, i just learn more, better, faster with videos and reading books, watching is my strong way of learning than reading if practice[doing] is out of question.
