Publisher's Summary

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.

Excellent content, mediocre narrator

Would you listen to The Champion's Mind again? Why?

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.

What other book might you compare The Champion's Mind to and why?

Win Forever, by Pete Carroll. More motivation and concepts to achieving greatness.

Would you be willing to try another one of Eric Michael Summerer’s performances?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I get extremely pumped and motivated for my week

Any additional comments?

Would be 10/10 if the narration were a bit better, but it's not so bad. I still listen to it frequently.
