In It’s Not My Fault, author Joshua Shifrin helps tennis players make sense of their most monumental losses on the court.

Shifrin has crafted 150 funny–but all-too-real–excuses for pros and amateurs alike. Examples include:
Whether you want to motivate your friends or family who have just started playing or eradicate embarrassing mistakes in your own game, It’s Not My Fault is a must-read. Complete with laugh-out-loud cartoons, this book makes for the perfect gift.
