    In The Champion's Mind, sports psychologist Jim Afremow, PhD, LPC, now offers the same advice he uses with Olympians, Heisman Trophy winners, and professional athletes, including tips and techniques based on high-performance psychology research, such as how to get in a "zone," thrive on a team, and stay humble; how to progress within a sport and sustain excellence long-term, and customizable pre-performance routines to hit full power when the gun goes off or the puck is dropped.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, The narrator's monotonous drone and lack of emotional involvement in what is totally an emotion based topic basically made the audible version boring and unmemorable. I DO think it would probably be a good read where the narrator is you.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Afremow again?

    yes, IF narrated better. The book was highly recommended and I thought I'd be able to listen in the truck or during down time.


    What didn’t you like about Eric Michael Summerer’s performance?

    He lacked emotional involvement- or really any interest in the material. just a distant voice reading the material.


    Was The Champion's Mind worth the listening time?

    no and I found I tuned it out most of the time. I would consider buying the book.
