Finally, a MENTAL SYSTEM that works
on April 6, 2006
I have read several books on the mental game and this one by far is the best. Lanny does an outstanding job of explaning how performance is generated. In his view performance is a function of three mental processes, the Conscious Mind, the Subconscious Mind, and the Self Image. He shows a model on the relationships of the three and provides outstanding principles that support his view.
Unlike other books that talk about one area of the mental game and try to get you to cope with yourself, this one provides explations of why people are where they are at and shows you how you can improve. I have since purchased other products (such as Freedom Flight, which is on audio and available on Amazon) from Lanny's web sight and have been very pleased with all of them.
This book is an easy read, with little filler in it and I would recommend it to everyone. I rank this in my top three books on the mental game, the other two being "The Inner Game of Tennis" by Tim Gallwey and "Fearless Golf" by Gio Valiante.
If your looking at getting an edge in the Mental Game, this book if for YOU!
