LibraryThing Review

Användarrecension  - Oliver-Eisler - LibraryThing

This book isn’t a routine pep talk. It’s an entertaining and practical discussion of how the mind affects athletic performance. Highly readable and engaging! Läs hela recensionen

Decent Book

Användarrecension  - barrydalmi - Overstock.com

This is a good well written book. It is better for a relatively advanced player as it doesnt so much deal with strokesstrategy but more your own approach to the game. It takes a little selfexamination and soul searching to actually Use what you might pick up from the book. A good read. Läs hela recensionen

Om författaren (2015)

Ever since Timothy Gallwey missed a heartbreakingly easy volley on match point in the National Junior Tennis Championship at the age of fifteen, he has been fascinated with the problem of how human beings interfere with their own ability to achieve and learn. His search for practical ways to overcome the mental obstacles that prevent maximum performance led to the basic discoveries first described in The Inner Game of Tennis, his bestselling classic. Since the completion of The Inner Game of Golf he spends most of his time in the Los Angeles office of the Inner Games Corporation, developing an Inner Game approach to such diverse fields as selling, management, stress, diet, music and the quality of work. He is the author of The Inner Game of Golf, The Inner Game of Tennis, and the co-author of The Inner Game of Music.
