The power in this book is that it helps you see what you're doing that's holding you back - and then frees you to achieve far greater results. As the title suggests, it not only looks at your physical performance but at what's going on in your mind. Roy Palmer helps you take a big leap forward, not by being better at what you already do, but by noticing what it is you could do differently. It's powerful stuff! It helps you in sport and fitness, and also in many other areas of life and work. The mind techniques that Roy explores will even help you achieve more focus when you're sitting at your desk, and show you how to take a better approach to ANY task that might seem overwhelming. This book will keep you `in the moment' and help you achieve more than you ever thought possible.

As a cricketer and fitness nut I was initially skeptical at the simplicity of some of the books suggestions. There are no hard training workouts or principles of power and speed to adhere to.
However, If my experience in the nets is anything to go by then this book can make a difference to sports performance. I can safely say that I have been playing with more confidence and skill since I read this book and employed the techniques.
The book is about relearning the basics of movement and as a result is more about simple tasks that help your central nervous system become more aware.
To use a language analogy, you might be getting by with a couple of hundred words in a foreign language, but to become fluent you have to learn so much more.
Yes, you will need an open mind to make it work but from my experience I can only say good things so far.
