5.0 out of 5 stars This should be the bible for all elite athletes!
Chungliang Al Huang and Jerry Lynch have put together a truly exceptional sports reference. The book is divided into three peices. First, it teaches the reader a special approach to solving problems. This process includes directed thoughts, afirmations, visualizations and many other techniques to tackle ones goals. Next the book addresses every problem an athlete...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not in accordance to the TAO
C Al Huang is not an author in this book - he seems to have merely provided the calligraphy for the chapters - likewise the Tao is not present in this book - Lynch seems to be in confusion about Taoism throughout the whole book he provides exercises that disconnect the mind from the body and disconnect time from space.

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be the bible for all elite athletes!, 24 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Thinking Body, Dancing Mind: Taosports for Extraordinary Performance in Athletics, Business and Life (Paperback)
Chungliang Al Huang and Jerry Lynch have put together a truly exceptional sports reference. The book is divided into three peices. First, it teaches the reader a special approach to solving problems. This process includes directed thoughts, afirmations, visualizations and many other techniques to tackle ones goals. Next the book addresses every problem an athlete could possibly encounter in pursuit of world class performance. The authors have disected these obstacles and given several strategies for conquoring them. Finally, the third part of the book (actually about the entire second half) presents all of the phsychological traits which exemplify champion athletes. From detachment to integrity, every last emotion and thought of a champion is addressed in this book. Thinking Body, Dancing Mind is very usefull for beginners who are just learning the basics of their sport. Amazingly, the book takes on an entirely different dimension for world-class athletes, who are struggling for an edge. For these athletes this book can be liked only to the bible.
For those interested in maximizing there performance, Optimum Sports Nutrition by Dr. Micheal Colgan is another great source for athletics.
