"This book authoritatively updates what was already an excellent and highly readable exposition on mental toughness in sports. All major theoretical and research bases are touched and supported with up-to-date citations. Additionally, scientific concepts are fleshed out with vivid anecdotal citations that make the book come alive. Michael Sheard has established himself as a leading authority on mental toughness." - Arnold LeUnes, Professor of Psychology, Texas A and M University, USA "Michael Sheard has managed to successfully draw together a wide range of academic and applied material to dissect the phenomenon of mental toughness. The underlying academic credentials are extremely sound and are coupled with an engaging presentation style which I find very appealing. The book updates the previous edition very well, and the new material is excellent." - John Kremer, Honorary Research Fellow, Queen's University, Belfast, UK "Solidly anchored in scientific research, the second edition of Mental Toughness goes even further in the analysis of what mental toughness is, how to assess it, and its determinants. Written in a lively style, the book contains both research and anecdotes that make it accessible to scholars and students alike." - Robert J. Vallerand, Full Professor of Psychology, University of Quebec, Canada "This book is an ideal companion for coaches, athletes and sports studies students who are interested in sport psychology. The references and quotes from key academics and sporting greats allow the reader to understand the concept of mental toughness, its relationship to sporting success and the ways in which it can be nurtured through practice and training." - John F. Mathers, Director of Learning and Teaching, School of Sport, University of Stirling, UK "The scholarly review of existing mental toughness research presented in this book is informative, and in particular, the critical analysis of previous attempts to create measures of mental toughness provides an insightful summary for scholars and students alike. Dr. Sheard's discussion of the factors which contribute to the development of mental toughness - cultural influences in particular - is also illuminating." - Robert Harmison, Kibler Professor of Sport Psychology, James Madison University, USA


Mental toughness is one of the most common terms used in sport – by athletes, coaches, spectators and the media. However, it is also one of the least understood terms. This book examines the characteristics and development of mentally tough sport performers, and presents the cutting-edge research in this area. Within these chapters, the author proposes that mental toughness is a personality style and mindset, and presents a compelling case for its inclusion within the positive psychological paradigm.

This second edition has been updated to include new material on the characterisation, conceptualisation, measurement, and development of mental toughness. As in the first edition the book includes a historical overview of empirical research, and also describes the conceptual arguments behind this research.?

Now packed with even more rigorous scientific evidence and bang up-to-date anecdotes from the world of sport, the book presents a fascinating explanation of why some athletes are successful, and how and why they stay on top. Mental Toughness: The Mindset Behind Sporting Achievement will be essential reading for all sport psychology, sport science, sport studies, and coaching students.

Awesome book! Purchased to start reading at the beginning of my dissertation process. This isn't a light read, heavily cited with an abundance of rich research. This is more geared toward academia, not leisure reading. Great information! Definitely helped kick start my dissertation.

3.0 von 5 Sternen So academic 7. April 2014
Von ServantofGod - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This review is written with the sole purpose of warning potential readers that its target audience is the academia that it is of little practical use to sportsman of any sort. Of the 262 pages, 124 are appendices and references, with always more than five sources quoted on each content page. It reminded me of a piece I recently read "Why Is Academic Writing So Academic? by Joshua Rothman" on The New Yorker, that "Academic prose is, ideally, impersonal, written by one disinterested mind for other equally disinterested minds. But, because it's intended for a very small audience of hyper-knowledgable, mutually acquainted specialists, it's actually among the most personal writing there is. If journalists sound friendly, that's because they're writing for strangers. With academics, it's the reverse." In case you want to learn something you may be able to make use of, 10-Minute Toughness by Jason Selk will be a better choice.

p.s. Sorry that the only enjoyable stuff of it is the few quotes in the beginning of each chapter.
Chapter 1: A leader is a dealer in hope. - Napoleon Bonaparte
Chapter 2: The reward of a thing well done is to have done it. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Chapter 3: Self control and resistance to distractions. Optimism in adversity. A personality in balance. - Marcus Aurelius
Chapter 4: Accuracy is a duty, not a virtue. - A.E. Housman
Chapter 6: To live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often. - Cardinal John Henry Newman
