Publisher's Summary

Dr. Bill Thierfelder knows what it takes to win. As a student at the University of Maryland he dominated the high jump, winning fame as an All-American and Irish national champion. Later he earned his doctorate in sports psychology. He became a private coach and mentor to the world's top athletes...and revealed to them his hard won secrets for success.

In Less Than a Minute to Go: The Secret to World-class Performance in Sport, Business and Everyday Life, Thierfelder, now President of Belmont Abbey College, reveals the secrets to:

  • Becoming a world-class performer
  • Preparing your mind to win
  • Making peak performance a common occurrence
  • Playing with a passion that never ends
  • But Thierfelder does more than give peak performance techniques. In this audiobook, he shows why sports are worthy of our deep attention and effort, whether as athletes or as avid spectators and fans.

    He shows how sports can and should engage the highest parts of our nature that, in fact, only when we are so engaged can we truly excel.

    And he reveals how sports train and prepare us for other arenas...where we all are players and where our choices have more significance than any World Series or Super Bowl.

    Join Dr. Bill Thierfelder in an exploration of sport-and of life-as you have never considered them before.

Not sports performance, but Religous Text

What disappointed you about Less Than a Minute to Go?

Title made me expect it would be a precise examination of those minutes/seconds where performance counts - and the preparation that led to great execution during those moments. While there were a few sporadic examples of this, most of the book consisted of tired aphorisms on good behavior

Great for sports coaches, nothing for business

Would you try another book from Dr. Bill Thierfelder and Coach Mike Krzyzewski and/or Dr. Bill Thierfelder?

No. This book was misleading in its title. It should be called "Sports coaching philosophy".

What could Dr. Bill Thierfelder and Coach Mike Krzyzewski have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He should have named it more appropriately. Remove some of the 'preachy' components.

Have you listened to any of Dr. Bill Thierfelder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This is the first.

Do you think Less Than a Minute to Go needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It's fine how it is for a sports philosophy book.

Any additional comments?

This book is spoken very well and the topics cover sport athlete coaching quiet well, although still very high level philosophy. And take Business out of the title and the book will be fine. However, it has nothing to do with Business except for a few analogies which are a stretch. It's overly preachy well past acceptable for a 'supposedly' business book. It should be reclassified or retitled as Sports Philosophy.
