Clear useful insights backed by significant science (Not just another "pop" business book to buy in the airport).

Choke is an important attempt to take an academic topic and make it applicable in the worlds of: sports, business and artistic performance - really "performance" in general. The constructs are complicated from a neuroscience perspective, but Dr. Beilock breaks them down into practical useful steps which I happened to use in a job interview two weeks after completing my review of the work. The book is insightful, very approachable and offers practical steps to the different means one can successfully prepare for different situations (e.g. an athletic performance being quite difference than a business presentation). As an academic myself - who is responsible for a high-performing team of individuals - I will make sure this book makes the rounds among our members. Strongly recommended.
