This review is from: Appalachian Trials: The Psychological and Emotional Guide to Successfully Thru-Hiking The Appalachian Trail (Kindle Edition)
There are a lot of hiking books out there, especially for the Appalachian Trail, but this book focuses on the psychological challenge a thru-hike presents. It talks about the mindset needed to complete the hike and gives you exercises (mental, not physical) to complete before and on the trail. Personally, I found this really helpful in my planning process.
And don't worry, for all you gear junkies out there... there is also a section devoted to this very topic. There is a contribution from an hiker who has completed both the AT and the PCT. He shared his vast knowledge, complete with a gear checklist.
I definitely recommend this book if you are considering any long distance hike.

Read the negative review on gear. They said it's not very good, and a separate author who was sponsored by an equipment maker.
