    "Useful Bundle"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mind Gym?

    A very good book and quite helpful. You will find a lot of great ideas and tips that will help be mind and body ready. Great guide on keeping you truly healthy.


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

    I've listen a fair few sports psychology books in the past and found this one to cover a big range of topics but with out too much depth.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. Often I can be fearful as I go about life. Fear is often the thing that can hold us back. In this short, to-the-point read, “Mind Gym” sets out to help you push past your limitations and mentally be your best. If you live in fear, you definitely want to consider buying this books.

    "I've recommended it to many colleagues and clients"

    As sports lover with a psychology degree, I immediately grabbed this book when I saw its availability. I was ecstatic when I saw a professional psychologist and writer take sports and behavioral science to a level that I never seen others do before. The book was extremely well done, in terms of its research, writing style and information. The writers took familiar, popular psychology studies and mixed it with lesser-known research to weave a tale of various behavioral themes and theories that apply to sports. Not only were they able to do this successfully, but they did it in a way that was fun, humorous, and extraordinarily enlightening. This is a book that every sports fan should read -- and any psychology student would appreciate as well!

    "Not just for athletes"
    Where does Mind Gym rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The most practical book on the subject. I took a you of notes to implement! Top 2


    Any additional comments?

    As someone in the performing arts I've found this book to be a tremendous help. There are many parallels between sports and other professions that require focus on performance, competitiveness and training. Sound advice for anyone regardless of their chosen career. Highly recommend.

    "Surface Level Inspiration"
    Where does Mind Gym rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 3


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mind Gym?

    I think this book serves a valuable purpose in providing short punchy inspirational essays. The chapters are packaged very neatly and the author does an admirable job of creating an easy to listen book.


    Any additional comments?

    On that level, I think Mind Gym is a success and achieves its objective. While my book is written in an entirely different style, I did benefit from tightening up some of the chapters. I recommend Mind Gym for the message and delivery.

    "power of the mind is awesome"

    This book breaks down the basics of the small mental challenges we face that slow ourselves down. This book helps me understand when I am not in the zone mentally and being mentally lazy. I feel now that I am more conscious of my mental state and can keep a positive mindset. Mathis is a great read if you are in sales or management also. It will also help the golf game

    "Inspirational Sports Quotes"
    What made the experience of listening to Mind Gym the most enjoyable?

    Yes i enjoyed very addicting content that's hard to put down


    What other book might you compare Mind Gym to and why?

    Cool premise, good contextual examples, but not a mind-blowing theme. I was hoping that the book would delve deeper into the science of the matter and less of the surface-level topics


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Visualization, attitude, and other mental tools you need to accomplish the best results.<br/>Silent voices in your head you can use to your benefit<br/>The invisible crowd that is always cheering you on

    "A life changing book"

    I credit this book for changing the direction of my life. I found it to be a powerful tool in changing the way I view the world. If you really take the information in this book to heart it can help you accomplish great things in your life. The lessons learned in this book apply not only to sports but also to life in general. This book really teaches you the power of your own mind and will. I strongly suggest this book to anyone not just athletes.
