From the Author
This is not a skill-specific book. The content will not teach the reader how to kick a field goal, hit a home run, serve an ace, stick a dismount, or perform any other athletic feat. Rather, the book aims to help student-athletes improve--physically, mentally and emotionally--regardless of their sport; to place winning, losing and competing in a healthy perspective; to understand the varying natures of success and justice; to encourage parents and coaches to remember what's important in the long run; to explore how sport relates to the rest of our lives, as one component, among others, of our attempts to become balanced human beings. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
