I found the book easy to read and understand.
Jerry A. Jerard
It dives into the mental game aspect of the game and just helps you with the skills that most bowlers will need to take their game to the next level.
William S. Gross
It is very hard to break old habits but that is what an addict has to do to change.

When ever you buy a book containing psychology, you think to say "I knew that!", but this book pinpoints the essens of bowling psychology. I've focused on several things that for sure will make me a better bowler.

I am still currently reading this book and it is very good! If you are a professional bowler or a league bowler this book is essential to build your mental game! It will get you through tough pressure situations and open your mind for things that you either have/have not experienced! I really recommend this book to anyone to kick their bowling up the extra notch!

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to help with my bowling, since as a novice bowler,

I was dismayed by my embarrassing performance when bowling with friends.

I would bowl a strike and then have a string of gutter balls.

I found this book really helpful, not just for bowling, but for achieving excellence

in other sports. I was able to apply the lessons to other challanging areas in my life.

The book gives a comphrehensive overview of this incredibly popular sport. The writers have laid out a step by step mental

plan of action that accounts for most contigencies and can used when someone has to psychologically prepare

onself to perform at a high level.

The use of acronyms such as RALLY ( react, accept, learn, lean, yes )and the examples

of positive self talk particularly useful.

Many bowlers actually know this axiom but fail to do anything about it. This book will give you many avenues to approach your mental game. Many of the mental training techniques covered in this book will work for you....If you actually try them. It is very hard to break old habits but that is what an addict has to do to change. We are all bowling addicts and our old habits can destroy our hopes for a better average. This book is a Lighthouse showing us some of the ways we can get to out goal... I am still reading and re-reading parts of this book... (Old habits die hard..LOL)

Loved the book. It definitely has good ideas and I learned some new things to try in my game attitude and preparation. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants to get serious about their game and try to strike out on the tournament trail.
