I know! Curious George burns in Jahannam!

Great idea for a thread, btw.

Just finished two books: How to Play Better Tennis by Bill Tilden and Blink:The Power of Thinking without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell.

The Tilden book was written over fifty years ago, but I was surprised to recognize many of the lessons taught to me nearly verbatim by various instructors very recently.

I've passed over Blink for a long time because, ironically, the cover and blurb did not intrigue me. I finally cracked it open and started reading, and couldn't stop. Lots of fascinating and disturbing stuff in there. The stuff about the conscious and unconscious syncs up perfectly with what Timothy Gallwey talks about in The Inner Game of Tennis. Totally recommend it.
