Fact or Fiction: The Life & Times of a Ping Pong Hustler
Fact or Fiction: The Life & Times of a Ping Pong Hustler is a documentary about Marty Reisman, one of the most famous American players of his era. Now available to stream on devices with Amazon Prime or YouTube if you pay. I just watched it last night and though it doesn’t have nearly enough ping pong in it, it is worth seeing for a bit of history and the wacky character of Marty Reisman himself at the end of his life.
Table tennis film now available for viewing
As an early supporter of the film, Top Spin, I finally watched it and discovered a film that should appeal to both TT fans and non-TT fans. The “cast” of characters have a very modern attitude toward the world of competition, and the filmmakers give a great “behind the scenes” look at what is not a simple world. A great documentary!
Find it streaming and on DVD.
Top Spin, the film, finally arrives in theaters
Hopefully it will show in the Santa Cruz area soon

Ping-Pong Diplomacy: The Secret History Behind the Game That Changed the World
I heard about this book on NPR recently. Though more about politics than ping-pong, it sounds extremely interesting.
