Great Thinkers

Review From User :

I won this book through a Goodreads first reads giveaway.

The Champion's Mind is a great resource for anyone not just athletes for improving and developing mental skills in any domain of performance. Dr. Afremow provides several practical mental skills proven to be effective based off psychological research. He also provides famous studies to learn from as well as an assortment of Zen and Taoist stories that emphasize the effectiveness of mindfulness. Also, a chapter comprised of Olympian's anecdotes are included. There's a bunch of great quotes from various athletes, coaches, and thinkers at the start of each section. The book and the content are simple and clear to understand. As mentioned by the author, and for learning purposes, read a chapter a day to really give the content time to think about. I found this book very motivating and enjoyable. For anyone, knowledge about sport and performance psychology can provide mental skills for life.
