Excellent Book, Excellent insight into the heart of the game.
But the mental game is the key to all sports (and more), not just football. I know football is your passion but your beginings are in tennis. Is there going to be an MPI for tennis, or for that matter, basketball, golf or baseball?
After watching a March Madness full of upsets, one has to wonder how many of those upsets were physical ability/preparedness driven and how many were mental ability/preparedness driven!
I want the forward of the next one to be written by Noah! A Gator hoopster from the tennis world! He can do the basketball and tennis editions!
Choking and mentally induced underperformance has been around forever. I'm sure neolithic tribes went hungry when their star spear thrower missed the big one. It's been talked about since the stone age, but now it's quantified and documented!
Great Job Doc
