Sports participation - from the recreational to the collegiate Division I level - is at an all-time high. While the caliber of their game may differ, athletes at every level have one thing in common: they want to excel. In The Champion's Mind, sports psychologist Jim Afremow, PhD, LPC, now offers the same advice he uses with Olympians, Heisman Trophy winners, and professional athletes, including tips and techniques based on high-performance psychology research, such as how to get in a "zone", thrive on a team, and stay humble; how to progress within a sport and sustain excellence long-term, and customizable pre-performance routines to hit full power when the gun goes off or the puck is dropped. The Champion's Mind distills actionable advice into clear and concise steps for athletes looking to find confidence, concentration, and mental preparedness - the mental edge that sets champions apart.
"The Champion's Mind is loaded with great lessons, advice, and perspectives on how to be successful." (Dan Jansen)

Excellent content, mediocre narrator
Yes, I listen to it frequently. While not an athlete, I find the concepts in the book very effective at keeping me focused and motivated in my work and life.
Win Forever, by Pete Carroll. More motivation and concepts to achieving greatness.
Yes, but I'd prefer other narrators. Eric's narration is clear and understandable, but often sounds a bit mechanical and unnatural. Sometimes it's as if my computer is narrating for me.
I get extremely pumped and motivated for my week
Would be 10/10 if the narration were a bit better, but it's not so bad. I still listen to it frequently.
Probably better as a book
No, The narrator's monotonous drone and lack of emotional involvement in what is totally an emotion based topic basically made the audible version boring and unmemorable. I DO think it would probably be a good read where the narrator is you.
yes, IF narrated better. The book was highly recommended and I thought I'd be able to listen in the truck or during down time.
He lacked emotional involvement- or really any interest in the material. just a distant voice reading the material.
no and I found I tuned it out most of the time. I would consider buying the book.
