Publisher's Summary

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.

Inspiring and at the same time dated

Would you consider the audio edition of Mind Gym to be better than the print version?

I actually feel that I could have learned more if I had read the book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

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.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Young – was your favorite?

There were far to many to choose one. Suffice it to say they supported well his thesis throughout the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It takes time and it would be too deep to listen in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

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.

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!

Not just for Sports

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 !

Too specific, too much story telling

I bought this for my daughter who is a gymnast, I would have preferred something with more visualization and less story telling , not good for our needs

Cliched but Good

You'll hear nearly every sport's quote and cliche that exists but their well-placed to support each chapter. As an audiobook, it should have been recorded in the 40 chapters as the print book is. As recorded, it's hard to follow when each new lesson starts. Still, great info and motivation.

Informative

Excellent motivational book. The use of influential quotes and personal experiences make the read even more enjoyable.

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.
