Larger than the state of Rhode Island and laced by a thousand miles of trails, the White Mountains have long been a hiker's paradise. Here is a first-person account of the world that begins where the pavement ends. Fishermen, backpackers, trail-bikers ... goofers, peak baggers, and through hikers ... you'll find them all in the White Mountains, and you'll meet them all in the pages of this compelling book.The year is 1975, when it was still possible to find space in a lean-to shelter, and the Old Man of the Mountains still showed his splendid profile over Franconia Notch. "A thousand delights," wrote the reviewer for Appalachia magazine.

I have tried to show people of all ages the benefits of tennis. It is a spring board to almost any other sport or activity one may pursue. I started competing in a wide range of sports at an early age. Tennis combines the best for all sports. The movement on the court is up, back, side to side, reaching and the use of both hands. This also includes strategy and endurance. In singles one is out there by themselves and the result comes based upon how much the individual works. Nothing worthwhile comes easy.
It is this experience combined with my love of teaching that I want to get across to the reader. Tennis is a great life lesson but should be fun. It also can be played by all ages, regardless of skill or ailments. There are too many things that we have to do, tennis should not be one of them.
Enjoy the game.

Every piece of hardware that makes up a computer must work together in synchronicity for the computer to operate, and if you want to avoid making frequent runs to the Apple store, they must be maintained too.

When your body is well maintained and you are in complete control, you stand to win more often than not. If you want to be successful as a professional tennis player, you must be healthy and fit. Your body must be nurtured and maintained. You must train properly, avoid injury, and understand the mechanics of every shot you make. This book is the only comprehensive source of all the physical skills required to compete as a professional tennis player. If you, your child, or your students are ready to stop taking risks when it comes to health and well-being and instead have the best shot at making it pro, then this book is for you.

Foreword by former NFL-All Pro Neal Anderson.
Tennis is awareness. This study of technical, strategical, tactical, physical and mental awareness, as
well as that of a person’s own personality, is the common theme of each chapter of this book and in every approach I take to coaching.
Tennis exposes strengths and weaknesses. It is an equalizer, putting everyone on equal footing. On the court, there is no one you can ask for help.
There is only you, your abilities and your experience in an unpredictable situation, where the only certainty is the awareness forged by experience.
I took my inspiration from the Spanish Method of Luis Bruguera for who needs certainties and solid points, to the development of stances and podalic proprioceptivity of S. Sosa and A. Musulin, fundamental for a solid technique. Visual training analysis by postural and behavioral optometrist is
the starting point to search motorial awareness. Chapters about psychomotor development analyze motor literacy building in which you can grasp that you can’t omit any letter. Criticalities in losses of balance accustom to adapt yourself to any situation E. Meyer affirms. American methodology by G. Jaramillo suggests the monothematic approach to automate learning.
My work is also founded on my studies in Sport Science, following in-depth study and then, more importantly, on testing – first on myself and then on thousands of athletes that have truly brought “The game of awareness” to life.
