In Mind Gym , noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack explains how your mind influences your performance on the field or on the court as much as your physical skill does, if not more so. Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes--many of whom he has worked with--you will learn the same techniques and exercises Mack uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle." Mind Gym will give you the "head edge" over the competition.

The ethical dissonance that rises when lauding Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, and Mark McGuire undermines the claim of mind-set's dominance in performance. Nevertheless, this is an OK survey of helpful platitudes.
