Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Renowned performance coach Don Greene, Ph.D., leads readers on a strategic, goal-reaching mission in this compact, powerful, and often fascinating handbook. A former Airborne Ranger and Green Beret (among a long list of other impressive credentials), Greene believes fear is only conquered by action--not by lying on a therapist's couch. To that end, he urges readers to assess their current skills (by taking a relatively simple survey provided in the book), pinpoint their weaker performance tendencies, then "embark on a training regimen" to flex seven specific fear-conquering muscles: determination, energy, perspective, courage, focus, poise, and resilience.

Greene uses each chapter to tell a story or two about a client--ranging from Olympic athletes to professional musicians to SWAT teams--whose fear scenarios provide a steppingstone for analyzing the seven skills mentioned above (determination, etc). He then quite eloquently describes how fear attempts to thwart each particular skill, and offers clear methods for retaliating ("centering down" to counteract ineffective nervous energy, or using anger constructively to develop resilience). The eight appendices outline his three-week prescription for mastering each skill, plus the key for scoring the skills survey. While his occasional military references and sports analogies offer glimpses into his commando training and sports psychology background, Greene never comes off as a stony General nor as a hyped cheerleader. Rather, his graceful writing style is rich with humor, candor, and valuable information. Forgivably cocky at times ("Nobody in the world has done as much as I have to bring out people's best"), Greene simply knows his stuff and--to the reader's benefit--presents it beautifully. --Liane Thomas

From Publishers Weekly

A self-help powerhouse with specific appeal to the business market, this persuasive book delivers concise analyses of stress, self-defeatism, the problem of identifying goals and so on, and recommends specific programs to overcome them. As a sports psychologist and performance coach to world-class athletes, Wall Street traders, police sharpshooters and professional musicians, Greene has perfected a plan for performing under intense stress, which he claims has helped thousands of clients. Like Rhonda Britten in Fearless Living, (see Forecasts, p.79), Greene does not focus on the source of one's fear. Yet in contrast to Britten, who treats underlying emotions, he concentrates on techniques for improving one's performance, drawing on military training, martial arts, visualization and mind mapping. Greene identifies seven areas of concentration namely determination, energy, perspective, courage, focus, poise and resilience and their components. Readers can measure their performance tendencies and identify difficult areas with an assessment test (soon to be available online at www.dongreene.com), though it's somewhat tricky to grade. Appendixes offer ambitious three-week programs to help readers hone each of the seven skills. With its neat separation of exercises from descriptive text, careful summaries of each point and exhortations to toughen the skin and build muscle, the book is reassuringly logical and lean. When Greene (a Ph.D., former competitive diver, West Point graduate, Green Beret) says it's never too late to recover from a major setback, readers will believe him. Agent, Alex Smithline, Scovil, Chicak & Galen. (On sale Mar. 6) Forecast: This muscular book's true-to-life examples and tested methodology will win legions of readers, and could earn Greene long-term bestsellerdom.
