OMG. Audible - can I get my money back

1) I am (amenities aside) a very good skier
2) and very interested in the burgeoning breakthroughs in mental training -
especially as it relates to movement skills (read the body has a mind of
its own.
3) So took a chance with "Own the Game" ... what a misplaced bet.
The book is an unembarrassed pitch by the author for his line of something.
And it's focus is the Dare to Be Great bs .. e.g., zoning is feeling good
about yourself and down from there. It's presentation is anecdotal and pandering in the worst of the southern California obsession with personal feelings of value. Again, Audible - can I get my money back

Filled with valuable substantive content...

This is really a high quality audio book with tons of valuable material. This is relevant to any sport. I'm currently carefully working through this audio book for my sport which is competitive racquetball. Covers practical advice for "staying in the zone", "maintaining focus", and appreciating the many dimensions associated with getting your "mental game" correct. I have a PhD in Experimental Psychology and
my research area is Cognitive Science and Mathematical Models of Behavior as well as an athlete
and I feel these lectures have real valuable practical content which is anchored in good science.
