What was one of the most memorable moments of Mind Gym?

A very good book and quite helpful. You will find a lot of great ideas and tips that will help be mind and body ready. Great guide on keeping you truly healthy.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I've listen a fair few sports psychology books in the past and found this one to cover a big range of topics but with out too much depth.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book. Often I can be fearful as I go about life. Fear is often the thing that can hold us back. In this short, to-the-point read, “Mind Gym” sets out to help you push past your limitations and mentally be your best. If you live in fear, you definitely want to consider buying this books.

I've recommended it to many colleagues and clients

As sports lover with a psychology degree, I immediately grabbed this book when I saw its availability. I was ecstatic when I saw a professional psychologist and writer take sports and behavioral science to a level that I never seen others do before. The book was extremely well done, in terms of its research, writing style and information. The writers took familiar, popular psychology studies and mixed it with lesser-known research to weave a tale of various behavioral themes and theories that apply to sports. Not only were they able to do this successfully, but they did it in a way that was fun, humorous, and extraordinarily enlightening. This is a book that every sports fan should read -- and any psychology student would appreciate as well!
