"A totally different perspective on the making of an athlete...An exceptional work." (Library Journal)
"[Body Mind Mastery] keynotes the mind/body/spiritual levels necessary in becoming a whole person." (Phil Jackson, former head coach, Chicago Bulls)
This is really good information. I've read Way of the Peaceful Warrior and I really appreciate how Millman shares unique thoughts while remaining accessible. For example, seeing meditation as a stairway to potential. I always thought of meditation as an obscure practice - a waste of time. Perhaps I'll give it a real shot now. If you're looking for a way to achieve personal excellence or just feel comfortable in your own skin, this could be a real eye-opener. Thanks, Dan.
Thanks Dan for writing such a comprehensive book on achieving mental focus and strength. I have tried for thirty years to defeat the no. one 50 tennis player in the world in a non practice match. Well, finally I defeated him in long three setter in 110 degree temperature. It came down to a tie breaker in the third and I had match point. Things were starting to tighten up so much that I could just feel myself starting to lose physical control. It was almost like I forgot how to serve ( I have been playing this game since I was 8 and I am now 52 ). I started to think of some of the things you talked about in your book. Particularly, in the section you talk about trying. I decided I wasn't going to try, but just let the racket flow freely and not worry about form or anything other the spot on the court on wanted to hit with the serve. It worked and on the biggest point I played in years. The ball landed in the exact spot I was aiming for. It wasn't an ace but the ball was unreturnable and the match was mine. I recommend this book to anyone serious about Tennis or Golf. It is definitely a 5 star.
Dan's skill in communicating has helped athletes from amateur to pro - this is one of the most important books I have ever read for my training and teaching --- Master Dean Siminoff, 5th dan black belt
Dan Millman's library has made a profound difference in my life. This title focuses specifically and the mind/body balance in sports (both team and individual) and is well worth the short listen.
