Publisher's Summary

Your ultimate guide to overcoming losses and injuries and achieving greatness - on and off the field.

Leading sports psychologist Jim Afremow, author of The Champion's Mind, knows what makes good athletes great, especially when they come back to win after facing devastating injuries, tough obstacles, or seemingly insurmountable odds. Making a comeback isn't just about raw talent or athletic ability - it's the mental game that counts most.

In The Champion's Comeback, he offers winning strategies for athletes of any age or skill level to get mentally psyched for competition, quickly rebound after a loss, and overcome injuries (and the fear of reinjury). Afremow explores the psychology of commitment and shows you how to develop the core confidence of repeat champions.

Featuring unique tips and advice, including guided imagery scripts, easy-to-follow mental training exercises, and motivating stories of famous "comeback" athletes, The Champion's Comeback is the ultimate athlete's handbook, encouraging you to not only stay in the game but also achieve greatness - no matter what.

Good content, but unbearable narration!

This is the worst audible book I have ever listened to - not because of the content, but because of the awful narrator! I could not make it through the entire audiobook due to this issue.

I told the author about his issue, and his disappointing reply to me, was that he had nothing to do with the audiobook. Quite honestly, I'd have expected him to care more than just a little, but he seemed to care not at all.

Nearly un-listenable robot recording...

I have nearly 100 audiobooks - usually don’t take the time to write detailed review - BUT - the recording on this book is so bad I had to.

The content is good. But it is like Robocop read this book!

Very cold & impersonal feel when listening - not the sensation you want especially when listening to a self-development book!

Continuous Improvement

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend it to anyone who trains and competes. Amateur athletes need to tap into the same wellsprings of motivation as the professionals.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Champion's Comeback?

Failure is the beginning of success.

Which scene was your favorite?

Michael Jordan's approach to competition. He was someone who failed but his inner drive ultimately made him the best basketball player ever.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Champion's Comeback?

As an amateur athlete I have begun to enjoy the process more than the result.

Any additional comments?

This is not just a motivational book it will give you tools to succeed. I enjoyed it.
