Publisher's Summary

The Brave Athlete solves the 13 most common mental conundrums athletes face in their everyday training and in races. You don't have one brain - you have three; your ancient Chimp brain that keeps you alive, your modern Professor brain that navigates the civilized world, and your Computer brain that accesses your memories and runs your habits (good and bad). They fight for control all the time and that's when bad things happen; you get crazy nervous before a race, you choke under pressure, you quit when the going gets tough, you make dumb mistakes, you worry about how you look.
What if you could stop the thoughts and feelings you don't want? What if you could feel confident, suffer like a hero, and handle any stress? You can.
The Brave Athlete from Dr. Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson will help you take control of your brain so you can train harder, race faster, and better enjoy your sport.
Dr. Marshall is a sport psychology expert who trains the brains of elite professional athletes. Paterson is a three-time world champion triathlete and coach. Together, they offer this innovative brain training guide that is the first to draw from both clinical science and real-world experience with athletes.

More than a triathlon book

This book is a cornucopia of information on The psychology of endurance sports. It is triathlon centric but the revelations it holds can be applied to many challenges in life in general. It does have a good share of profanity sprinkled throughout but replied well to emphasize psychologically trying situations. It is about time someone dispelled common motivational phrases and cliches that are absolutely useless.

Brilliant book

Absolutely brilliant. Easy to listen, with a good balance of science based evidence and storytelling. Suitable for all levels of athletes, and even business owners too
