"Do not wish for an easy life, wish for the strength to endure a difficult one" - Bruce Lee
In his effort to improve on a classic, Kennedy seems to have removed portions of the original and replaced them with a mashup of his own thoughts and sports stories. (If you're a golfer, you'll probably find this version very helpful.)
For my part, I'll go back to the original, if it's still available. Now that Matt Furey is at the helm, and has released his own version, as well, I don't know about that.
The book's whole premise is that we all behave not according to how things actually are, but how we perceive them to be. As a result of this, our beliefs can be very skewed, and thus our behavior will be as well. It is the task of this book to teach and instruct the reader in how to recognize irrational beliefs, use rational conscious thought to determine what they want to believe instead, and then use principles such as "theater in the mind" and "acting as if" to create a new reality experienced by your mind, which will program your self image, and thus create a new objective reality around you.
My personal opinion is that this book contains the key, the solution to any problem you are currently having, which you want to change but don't know how to, or are unsure of where to start. I highly recommend it.
Buy this book. Since there are thousands of inferior books using these ideas check out one of the best written.

The first chapter talks about self-image and ends with an effective prescription in which it asks you study a personal hero (for 21 days straight) that could be considered a high achiever.
I completed this prescription (I chose to study Arnold Schwarzenegger) and had many break throughs that essentially changed my life.
As a sports scientist this book is an necessary foundation piece within my library on performance psychology.
Love it would re-read it again and recommend
