As for the quality, I haven't yet finished the book but find it interesting and potentially useful. The connection between professional sports and professional musicians is interesting to explore. If you are debating between this book, and The Inner Game of Music by Barry Green, I would reccommend this book if you are a performance or serious student of classical music. There are fewer errors in this book, and it is more directly applicable. However, if you are more of an amateur, then I think that The Inner Game of Music would be more interesting to you.
I am usually very skeptical about these sorts of books as there are many out there that are simply too wishy-washy. 'Audition Success' is a no nonsense approach that if read, understood, and applied, can be very helpful in making performers more successful in audition and other performing situations. A must read (and must do!) for all musicians taking auditions.
