"Why do sports captivate people? They allow us to watch human beings achieve peak performance, but, beyond physical strength and skill, what's really impressive is an athlete's mental prowess--their will to succeed, engagement with their environment, and self-confidence. Sport psychology is the study of how to develop, improve, and maintain thoughts and behaviors that lead to peak athletic performance. Until now, these techniques have primarily been available to top athletes and coaches. In Life as Sport, sport psychologist Dr. Jonathan Fader shares the skills he teaches professional athletes to enhance motivation, set productive goals, sharpen routines, and clarify thought processes, and applies them to real-world situations at work, home, and play."--Publisher's description.
