Two-time Guinness World Records Title Holder Angelo A. Rossetti Announces the Release of the Sports Book TENNACITY: The Tenacious Mindset On & Off the Court


Hamden, Conn – Angelo A. Rossetti announces the release of his debut book, TENNACITY, hitting selected bookstores online and offline on November 16. It is available via pre-order now. Hardcover commemorative, full-color version, softcover full-color and black & white versions are available.


TENNACITY is written by someone who set two Guinness World Records™ titles in the sport of tennis. Both records have benefitted charitable causes as that was the primary motivation. Angelo A. Rossetti is the world’s first and only person, with his identical twin brother Ettore, to rally a tennis ball consecutively for over 14 hours and the world’s first and only person to volley a tennis ball for more than 30,000 times without a bounce, earning two Guinness World Records™ titles. ADVERTISEMENT Each chapter is book-ended by over 60 stunning professional photographs from legendary sports photographers Art Seitz and Cynthia Lum. The book focuses on how to become more mentally resilient, build mental strength through imagery, purpose, confidence, and goal setting. Ultimately, it’s how much “tennacity” you have that will be the indicator for your excellence and success.  


In TENNACITY, Angelo will help you develop a tenacious mindset for your sports and life with 30 Mindset Moments from his two world records. He shares insight into mental skills categories that can seem complex but are easy to learn and practice. TENNACITY will inspire you to be the best athlete and the best person you can be through 30 “Purpose Points.” Although his Guinness World Records™ titles are compelling stories, this book shouldn’t be read as a story but rather to be used like a toolkit and reference guide for excelling in sports and life. Key topics include confidence, grit, purpose, focus, imagery, visualization, playing freely, positive mental attitude, emotional intelligence, managing fear, 4 types of strength, skill acquisition/retention, 0:100 Rule & stretch goals. Would you like to develop the skills to be the best you can be in sports and in life? Looking for some inspiration and purpose in your sport and beyond? Then this book is a must read!
