I got to the top of a route yesterday that was super overhang-y and athletic. There was a top move that required every ounce of the physical me, and required dead-on mental focus. I got to it and howled. I also learned the whole way up, including the 5+ times I got thrown off. This lessons in this book give me the mental attitude to manage all the crap in my head. Can't recommend it enough.
Oh and by the way, my climbing has significantly improved since reading this book.

I found this book after my confidence got knocked about a bit after coming off during a slightly more intense lead climb, I dropped quite a few metres and due to the shape of the climb (a slab with overhangs) I ended up twisting during the fall and bang my head and back. After that my confidence doing leads was absolutely knocked out of me, I would clamp up and shake like a leaf in the wind.This book has lots of advice on dealing with your personal self when climbing and has a whole section in the back as well with exercises you can do, anything from breathing while climbing (of course we all breath while climbing but then there is more helpful breathing ways than others), to tips like filming yourself and review your own climbing afterwards and compare with how you were doing at certain sections - I found that tip particularly helpful.
Anyway, I could ramble on for hours about how great this book is.
