Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
I've been a baseball fan ever since I could remember. I've always been more interested in the behind-the-scenes of the game more than the actual big stage. I like reading stories about how a player became a star or the career he had after not hacking it in the minor leagues. The book does exactly that, and delves into the mental side that professional sports rarely goes into.
Yes, the book focuses on baseball, but even if I wasn't a baseball fan, I could relate to the players, who are people just like the rest of us. They struggle through the mental side of their chosen profession just like we struggle through the mental side of our jobs and our lives. I highly recommend all baseball fans to pick up Intangibles, and I also implore non-baseball fans not to be scared off by the big baseball on the cover and give it a read. I'm pretty sure anyone and everyone will get something out of it.
For baseball fans, players, and coaches this book provides insight into the lives of professional baseball players, taking the reader into the mindset that dominates their lives. Fans will find themselves having a greater appreciation for mental toll that each player takes every time they step on the field, and in many cases, how life off the field can affect performance on the field. Players and coaches have so much to gain from reading Intangibles because it provides great tips and life lessons for dealing with the ups and downs and everything in between that players and coaches deal with at every level from little league to the Major Leagues.
What is even better about this book, is that even someone who has no intrest in baseball or sports in general can take the lessons applied in each chapter with them into their social life, their career, or even the business world.
