"Mind Gym hits a home run. If you want to build mental muscle for the major leagues, read this book." -- Ken Griffey, Jr., Major League MVP

From the Inside Flap
Golfing great Bobby Jones said, "Competition is won or lost on the six-inch playing field between the ears." How do the best athletes gain an advantage on that playing field? In Mind Gym, noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack teaches athletes the lessons he's learned about how the mind influences athletic performance as much as physical skill does, if not more so.
Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes--many of whom he has worked with--Mack shares the same techniques and exercises he uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle."
Achieving this inner excellence requires time and effort. The more you work on the inside, the more it shows on the outside. These engaging stories--covering such themes as overcoming adversity, staying motivated, and following one's dreams--will enable you to perform at your best by choice rather than chance.
Mind Gym will give anyone who spires to be a better athlete the "head edge" over the competition.

I shared the title and some excerpts at a coaches' clinic at which I was presenting and got good feedback from those coaches who also purchased it to use in their programs.
The references to specific players and the stories about them made the book even better.
Anyone who's looking to jump into learning about sports psych should read this book.
Gary covers everything in this book. It's great for all ages and for any type of athlete. His wisdom even applies to life in general. I would recommend this book to everyone.
