Well, in my opinion this book is one investment that delivers performance improvements of magnitude with little cost. It doesn't disappoint.
Having been aware of some of Dr. Hemmings earlier Golf Mental Skills strategies with his 'In the Zone' programme, I found that 'Mental Toughness' took these to a whole new level.
A fascinating, yet straightforward read that's written in a way that makes it even easier to relate and apply to the sport, I really enjoyed this book. You can either dip into it as and when or read it cover to cover. There are lots of specific and relevant experiences of top players used to convey the underlying message - that essentially not only acknowledges the mental aspect and challenge of the game but more usefully equips the reader with the armoury to train these to positive effect.
I have to admit I've adapted some of the material for use in my management role within the workplace. I challenge you to see if you couldn't apply aspects of this read to other areas of your life too.
For those working in academia, the book can also be of great use. My students enjoyed greatly when I illustrated the importance of setting performance goals and focusing on your own game by reading them an excerpt from Gary Wolstenholme's experiences in taming the Tiger, or when Zane Scotland talked about using imagery at the Open Championships at Carnoustie.
This book is without a doubt one of the most reader friendly sport psychology books I have ever read, and most importantly, its contents are of great interest. It will surely continue to be of frequent use for me, both professionally and personally.
