In Mind Gym, noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack explains how your mind influences your performance on the field or on the court as much as your physical skill does, if not more so. Through 40 accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes - many of whom he has worked with - you will learn the same techniques and exercises Mack uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle." Mind Gym will give you the "head edge" over the competition.

Learning and knowing who you are as an athlete and at what stimulus level you perform best at its a key to just the top of the iceberg. This book will change athletes abs atheletes" and there parents. ENJOY!
I actually feel that I could have learned more if I had read the book.
The conclusion did well to tie everything together. It took awhile to get to that place - it would seem he saved the best for last.
There were far to many to choose one. Suffice it to say they supported well his thesis throughout the book.
No. It takes time and it would be too deep to listen in one sitting.
This is a good book. Others who I would recommend would be Nerve by Taylor Clark and The Art of Mental Training by D.C. Gonzalez. Similar books and more to the specifics on how to better exercise and train you thoughts for daily tasks.
My teenage son overheard this book and was riveted in place. A great book for life as well as for athletes. My favorite parts are too many to list - but I love to picture what the face of the high school coach who rejected Michael Jordan looked like when he saw the legend for the first time on National television !
The book is filled with stories and a few good insights, but there's a lack of support for the claims.
Look for another book if you want to learn about sports psychology.
"Ruined by awful reader"
The narrator is dull beyond the scope of reality. An otherwise useful tool is completely destroyed by this poor performance by a characature of some dodgy old texan narrating a 70's movie.
