This book is a sketchbook of ideas EC has learned as he goes about his life to church, to work, to teaching tennis, to playing tennis, and to visiting friends. The sketchbook helps EC distill what is important in his life and what he wishes to shoot for. Furthermore, the book keeps exploring ways that people play and learn the game of tennis. EC knows that the sketchbook is a work in progress, and so is his life.
