You can tell a lot about a man by the way he plays ping-pong. Mr. Mueller plays with searing intensity, like Kong Linghui or a smoother, less deliberate Liu Guozheng. Andy's known as "Game Face" and when he blasts a cross-court, match point forehand past your outstretched paddle, you'll know why. His is a game of precision, power and understated style.

We could make a forced analogy about how his table tennis skills relate to his work, but we'll spare you that. Watch the piece, admire his use of white space, just don't expect any handouts at the table. --Eric Helin, Slowtron
