After reading this book, I reached the No.1 singles spot on our varsity team, all conference, varsity MVP and have enjoyed decades of successful results in my game. Applying the principles in this book as a foundation, I went on to utilize the framework of mental toughness for other sports, business, relationships etc. Now that I have children, the need to instill the sense of mental toughness is paramount as they progress on their travails in school, sport and other endeavors. I can now teach them how to win. I am certainly not saying they will win every time. The essence is that the concepts when applied properly, will allow anyone to MAXIMIZE their talents through proper decision making (when to press the advantage, when to sustain/neutral, when to back down) and optimal execution of their game plan.
It is an enjoyable book. A very easy read while delivering profound content and usable concepts you can apply and practice immediately.

Inside the cover of my book, I had written the score of one of my most memorable tennis matches in high school. It was a 3 set match which I won the tiebreaker 7-5.Read more ›
