    One thought on “Everything You Know Is Pong: How Mighty Table Tennis Shapes Our World”

    1. I had no intention of doing anything other than looking at the (zillions of really great) pictures. I mean, I love ping pong -- but read a book full of essays about it? YES. I did. And this book shows that there could be about seven more books about ping pong (that I would read); there's that much more to say. Bennett and Horowitz's outlandish revisionist history (that places ping pong at the center of everything) is almost too much, but then it isn't. They say: there are no ex-ping pong players [...]

    2. He is a Men In Blazer so i had to love this.Its about table tennis its very funny its occasionally wise im not sure what else i can say. A book to pick up put down and return to.

    3. As bizarre as the title sounds, it's just a plain awesome reflection of how a mundane pastime has influenced western (and Eastern) world. A true delight once you pass over its bizarre settings.

    4. Oh, what a feast for a table tennis lover. This book makes me want to play table tennis 24/7. It was an enjoyable read, interspersed with insights to American society.

    5. This book is all over the place, it talks about many different general aspects related to the game, for example the history of the game, it's adoption in China, the evolution of table tennis, its limited but passionate audience, short stories with ping pong as the theme, etc. What I liked the most are all the photos and postcards in the book, and all the curious facts about the sport and it's players, it is a good book for Ping Pong fans.
