1.0 von 5 Sternen Easy read 3. August 2009
Von T. Christiansen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are expecting substantive theoretical sports psychological insights from this book, you will be thoroughly disappointed. While the anecdotes presented by the author are amusing, they provide little to no substance. Often, they are redundant to the point where it seems the author is beating the stain where the dead horse used to be. Each chapter ends with a short 1-sentence summary. In my opinion, the book could easily be condensed to only the chapter headings and the 1-sentence summaries, although it would be much less entertaining that way. The 1-liners do contain good information, but, unfortunately, much of it is what I would consider common sense.

Unless you can relate to baseball and other American sports, don't bother picking up this book. Most of the anecdotes are from the world of baseball.

That said, the book is a very easy read. I do not question the author's abilities as a sports psychologist. But I had expected a book with much more substance.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mind Gym 31. Oktober 2010
Von Sharps - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This a well written, concise look into a gammut of psychological skills related to sport performance. It is also a series of short stories from the author's career as a professional sport psychologist. It is an easy read and well done. What it is NOT is an introduction to sport psychology or a book that can help someone learn sport psychology unless they are already familiar with the topic. Good book, I liked it very much; but not a book from which one can learn sport psychology. It is a collection of stories and within each story there is a skill to be learned.

2.0 von 5 Sternen cliches and sports anecdotes 25. Januar 2011
Von Scott Braden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Wow, this one was disappointing. If you're a total newbie to sports psychology, you'll at least be introduced to the basics. But really, this book is just a collection of cute stories and cliched sports sayings.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not much for endurance athletes 25. November 2010
Von jnnrr415 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book because it came up in a search for triathlon books, but I think it was mis-categorized. If you're into sports like baseball, football and golf, this would be an enjoyable read. Seems like 99% of his examples are in these three more traditional sports. But there are a number of issues that come up for endurance athletes (triathlon, marathon, long-course cycling) that aren't even touched on in this book.
I think the author could do a second version that touches on how to continue pushing through the pain when you're 10 hours into a 15 hour effort to complete an Ironman and your head wants to quit. He touches on this in a chapter on determination, but it's one thing to sit on the sidelines and tell someone "don't quit!"; it's another thing to figure out how to manage what's behind your ears and he doesn't do a good job of addressing that. Or how to psychologically deal with a mass swim start. Or the psychological issues of training for 6 to 9 months for a single event.
I read this entire book and felt like only about 1/4th could apply... maybe more if I was forced to make the connections myself, but that's not really what I was looking for. Not saying it's a bad book, but if you're looking at this for endurance sports you might pass.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not well written, rehashes other books. 21. Juni 2005
Von Tour Pro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I have just about every book on the topic of sports performance.

I've read others that were more impactful and helpful.

Granted, this book is good if you're just looking for some inspiration that might eventually lead you to results. For immediate results to use on one's game, however, this book isn't it!

As another reviewer said, it's clumsily written. For my hard earned money, I'd like something that I can actually use on my game right away.

If you're a couch potato athlete that only watches a game, this book is probably good. My brother-in-law loves it. He's never played a sport in his life, but is a big fan. For competitive athletes who are more interested in RESULTS and can get their cliches from TV announcers, this book isn't for them.

I'd give it one star, but those who've met the guy seem to like him enough to log onto amazon and write a review. Nothing personal, but I can't give this anything like the rating the others did.
