Well I said I prefer comics to coloring books.
That said, no I haven't read Inner Game, but if you got a copy I could borrow.....

I have a copy and it is one of my most important books!  You could borrow it!   I actually need to read it again soon!  Around here we have Half-Price Bookstores that have copies of it for like 3-4 bucks or you could also probably find it on Half.com for similar price.  If you are into reading about mental strength, then I highly recommend it!

I hit with Scott & Jeffro over Christmas at a club near the JC Penny wherehouse there in Columbus, and there was a used bookstore at the mall nearby on Brice Rd that had some really good prices. I was poking around because I had gotten into Columbus a little earlier than I expected. For all the talk about the colleges here in the Boston area (their very proud of that here) there aren't too many good used books stores around.

Hey DM -  

Go into any of the squares in Cambridge - Harvard, Brattle or Central and there are tons of older bookstores.  Also try the little book stores around Beacon Hill.  If you are in the western part of the state there are lots of old book stores in Amherst.  Also there used to be a really great Dollar Book Store across from Boston Common near the State House area.

The book in question is a great one.  I lent it to someone a few years back and never saw it again and then moved cross country so will NEVER see it again!

Good luck searching!

Also to comment on your composure message, players are only setting bad examples and losing the match for themselves when they do that.

Whenever my opponent gets frustrated and shows it, I get so happy.

That's why I try as hard as I can to be like FED.

Amazon or Ebay are good options for the book too.

Can't deal with Cambridge traffic and confusing layout. I had to deliver a racquet to the Mt Auburn club and it took me over an hour to get there.  45 min to get to cambridge, and a half hour to negotiate the twists and turns and traffic. Not to mention the fact that most of the streets have no signs or any indication of where you are. I get lost everytime I go inside 128.
I think I'd rather drive to Columbus and borrow Buckeye's copy. In fact... I think I will.

Sounds good!  Let us know when you are coming and we will hook it up.  If the weather is nice we could hit outside or if not, we could try our club!   :)
