Quatrième de couverture

Praise for Mind Gym

"Believing in yourself is paramount to success for any athlete. Gary's lessons and David's writing provide examples of the importance of the mental game."
--Ben Crenshaw, two-time Masters champion and former Ryder Cup captain

"Mind Gym hits a home run. If you want to build mental muscle for the major leagues, read this book."
--Ken Griffey Jr., Major League Baseball MVP

"I read Mind Gym on my way to the Sydney Olympics and really got a lot out of it. Gary has important lessons to teach, and you'll find the exercises fun and beneficial."
--Jason Kidd, NBA All-Star and Olympic gold-medal winner

In Mind Gym, noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack explains how your mind influences your performance on the field or on the court as much as your physical skill does, if not more so. Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes--many of whom he has worked with--you will learn the same techniques and exercises Mack uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle." Mind Gym will give you the "head edge" over the competition.

Easy read 3 août 2009
Par T. Christiansen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you are expecting substantive theoretical sports psychological insights from this book, you will be thoroughly disappointed. While the anecdotes presented by the author are amusing, they provide little to no substance. Often, they are redundant to the point where it seems the author is beating the stain where the dead horse used to be. Each chapter ends with a short 1-sentence summary. In my opinion, the book could easily be condensed to only the chapter headings and the 1-sentence summaries, although it would be much less entertaining that way. The 1-liners do contain good information, but, unfortunately, much of it is what I would consider common sense.

Unless you can relate to baseball and other American sports, don't bother picking up this book. Most of the anecdotes are from the world of baseball.

That said, the book is a very easy read. I do not question the author's abilities as a sports psychologist. But I had expected a book with much more substance.

Mind Gym 31 octobre 2010
Par Sharps - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This a well written, concise look into a gammut of psychological skills related to sport performance. It is also a series of short stories from the author's career as a professional sport psychologist. It is an easy read and well done. What it is NOT is an introduction to sport psychology or a book that can help someone learn sport psychology unless they are already familiar with the topic. Good book, I liked it very much; but not a book from which one can learn sport psychology. It is a collection of stories and within each story there is a skill to be learned.

Not much for endurance athletes 25 novembre 2010
Par jnnrr415 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I found this book because it came up in a search for triathlon books, but I think it was mis-categorized. If you're into sports like baseball, football and golf, this would be an enjoyable read. Seems like 99% of his examples are in these three more traditional sports. But there are a number of issues that come up for endurance athletes (triathlon, marathon, long-course cycling) that aren't even touched on in this book.
I think the author could do a second version that touches on how to continue pushing through the pain when you're 10 hours into a 15 hour effort to complete an Ironman and your head wants to quit. He touches on this in a chapter on determination, but it's one thing to sit on the sidelines and tell someone "don't quit!"; it's another thing to figure out how to manage what's behind your ears and he doesn't do a good job of addressing that. Or how to psychologically deal with a mass swim start. Or the psychological issues of training for 6 to 9 months for a single event.
I read this entire book and felt like only about 1/4th could apply... maybe more if I was forced to make the connections myself, but that's not really what I was looking for. Not saying it's a bad book, but if you're looking at this for endurance sports you might pass.

cliches and sports anecdotes 25 janvier 2011
Par Scott Braden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wow, this one was disappointing. If you're a total newbie to sports psychology, you'll at least be introduced to the basics. But really, this book is just a collection of cute stories and cliched sports sayings.

Crippled by one jaw-droppingly awful flaw 5 avril 2009
Par Roberto H - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Mind Gym's theories on sports psychology are not all that revolutionary. Any good coach will already understand the author's thoughts on discipline, preparation, confidence, positive imagery, etc.; however, there is substantial value in the dozens of anecdotes and stories from household name athletes. These examples make great talking points when explaining psychological concepts to kids.

So, until I was almost finished with the book, I definitely enjoyed it. That was until the author revealed that he has all of his clients close their eyes and listen to "Hero" by Mariah Carey. Wow - talk about a blow to his credibility.

If you believe you can overcome this horrendous nugget of info, then you will probably like this book. But if you, like me, find this just too much to bare, then don't waste your time.
