Review

“Performance anxiety can scuttle great opportunities to showcase your talent and work. Psyched Up is an essential user’s guide for ensuring you’ll be your best when you take center stage—whether the cameras are rolling or not!”
—KATIE COURIC

“Daniel McGinn takes readers into locker rooms, backstage on Broadway, onto the sales floor at Yelp, and inside the DJ booth at Fenway Park to discover the secrets of how high performers use psychology, superstition, and a surprising mix of other tools to get ready for the make-or-break events in their lives. It’s a fascinating read.”

Psyched Up is filled with actionable, practical tips and tools to help reduce anxiety, lower stress, and build confidence. McGinn’s strategies can create a winning pregame routine for anyone.”

—BRAD FELD, venture capitalist and cofounder of Techstars

Psyched Up provides a wonderful overview of the science and practicalities of how to perform well when it matters most. The book is full of useful takeaways for all of us, including—my favorite—how powerful it can be to have lucky exam shoes.”

Psyched Up offers compelling, entertaining, and well-researched advice on how to prepare for stressful situations.”
