A self-help book that reads like a novel!,
This review is from: The Art of Mental Training - A Guide to Performance Excellence (Kindle Edition)
"The Art Of Mental Training" by D.C.Gonzalez is truly an intriguing read. Whether you are seeking answers amongst its pages for your own life or you are just keenly interested in matters of a psychological nature, this book explains how that which takes places in the mind can have an impact on outward performance. As such, the book highlights the importance of mental training.
Gonzalez is clearly focused upon the sportsmen and women amongst us (as is clear even from the e-book cover) but what is wonderful is that it is applicable to so many more people than these. I am not a sporty or athletic type of person, however I am vastly involved in the performing arts and found that what is expounded in this book is vital and workable information. I believe it could span all kinds of lifestyles and has the ability to speak into everyday situations that are stressful or chaotic, whether it be in the home or the work place!
What really struck me about "The Art Of Mental Training" was its complete fluidity and its utterly compelling writing style. You can see this even from the gripping chapter titles. Many self-help books can be either confusing or just so matter of fact that they bore you to tears, but neither is the case here! Its pages are littered with analogies that come alive which enhance the information presented, and in my case caused me to relate and think "yep, I was that person who yawned in class whilst everyone else made the discussion work".
Overall, I thoroughly and whole-heartedly recommend this book for sportsmen and non-sportsmen alike - it's wisdom will impact you with tangible results. A self-help psychology book that grips you like a novel - couldn't imagine a better package.
