Product description

From the Back Cover

Praise for "Mind Gym"

"Believing in yourself is paramount to success for any athlete. Gary's lessons and David's writing provide examples of the importance of the mental game."
--Ben Crenshaw, two-time Masters champion and former Ryder Cup captain

""Mind Gym" hits a home run. If you want to build mental muscle for the major leagues, read this book."
--Ken Griffey Jr., Major League Baseball MVP

"I read "Mind Gym" on my way to the Sydney Olympics and really got a lot out of it. Gary has important lessons to teach, and you'll find the exercises fun and beneficial."
--Jason Kidd, NBA All-Star and Olympic gold-medal winner

In "Mind Gym," noted sports psychology consultant Gary Mack explains how your mind influences your performance on the field or on the court as much as your physical skill does, if not more so. Through forty accessible lessons and inspirational anecdotes from prominent athletes--many of whom he has worked with--you will learn the same techniques and exercises Mack uses to help elite athletes build mental "muscle." "Mind Gym" will give you the "head edge" over the competition.

I play badminton quite a bit and wanted some tips and techniques to help with the way I think about and think while I play the game - I found nothing useful here. Filled with unnecessary anecdotes and clearly geared towards those aiming to or actually competing at a high level, although I'm not sure if it would even be useful for them. Much of the contents seemed 'obvious' to me.

By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 May 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gary Mack's book on the importance of your thinking processes in sport (and by extension in life) has two problems. Firstly, if you don't know American sports in the Nineties then many of the names in his anecdotes will be unfamiliar. Secondly, for those who do know American sports in the Nineties some of the teams he has advised are not exactly stellar. But this just means you need to read with care, and if you don't share the inordinate interest with golfers (or cannot avoid the thought that this is just sport, what about life?) you can go straight to the summary points at the end of each chapter. These are annoyingly smug and even more annoyingly they do seem to work.

Mack uses many of the processes of NLP with an helpful dollop of commonsense. So please don't be put off by the anecdotes concerning unknown but obviously revered athletes. He packs much the same message as an Anthony Robbins book but in much less space.

Fantastic book! Sometimes I felt little disconnected as author is using a lot of baseball and golf terminology, which I don't understand that well. Although, I have always been able to get a point. This is not your "Yes, you can do it" motivational book as you can find in every bookstore. This is seriously great look into minds of professional athletes. It takes you trough their struggles and how they were dealing with them.

I've been getting more and more interested in mindset and how this determines your ability to win. In the book it goes through lessons learned and how you can apply these in your day to day life, work and/or sport. Very good read and would definitely recommend.

Very American in the way it is written. Was hoping for something a little different to this. Never made it to the end before I gave up.

This book is exceptional. I actually found this book by accident, but I'd like to put it another way, this book found me. Forget those who criticise it for its American sports examples, look beyond that. Apply it to your entire life. This book is simple. It draws on all those great sayings you've heard at some stage in your life. I reccommend you read a chapter of it every morning. Its a brilliant motivator. The only problem is, this read can't go on forever.....

Lots of short chapters which was nice for someone who doesn't have much time on their hands. Each story has some something interesting to say which made me consider how I was mentally working best when doing my sport.

Once you get past the perhaps unfamiliar American sports, anic dotes etc, the message is simple and clear. It's not a cook book full of formulas, but straight to the point. and it does get results.
