    How does your opponent put that tricky spin on the ball? Why are some serves easier to return than others? The mysteries behind the winning strokes, equipment, and surfaces of the game of tennis are accessibly explained by Howard Brody through the laws of physics. And he gives practical pointers to ways players can use this understanding to advantage in the game. 
    Through extensive laboratory testing and computer modeling, Brody has investigated the physics behind the shape of the tennis racket, the string pattern, the bounce of the tennis ball, the ways a particular court surface can determine the speed of the game, and the many other physical factors involved in tennis.

    Do we really need to be strong and fit? It depends. 
    It depends on the type of life we want to lead.  Do we 
    want to be “normal”? When normal increasingly means a person who eats junk food all day, abuses their body in every way imaginable and has a body that looks truly terrible in the mirror? 
    Or do we want to look much better, even beyond normal? Something heroic? Where our bodies are truly a temple that we can be proud of.  A body that makes heads turn, feels great and performs how we need to when we need it to. 
    If you choose the second option, the option of a heroic body, then getting strong and fit is a must. 
    This Guide gives you a straight path to that goal. Without endless cardio. Without wasting your time on exercises  
     
    that don't do anything.  And without the need for expensive supplements, drugs, a personal trainer or any other distractions or potential dangers. 
    In our Guide you'll approach getting strong and fit with 
    the “take no prisoners” and “accept no excuses” approach of the ancient Spartans.  Famous as one of the most strong and fit societies the world has ever produced. 
    If you've seen any of the “300” movies, or read “Gates of Fire”, you'll know exactly why the Spartans are an inspiration.  If you haven't see them or read the book, check them out. You'll be glad you did.
