The author offers a multidimensional exploration of the major, though elusive role psychology plays in all areas of sports endeavors. Here are in-depth discussions on the incredible role that motivation can play in determining athletic performance; the effect of mental rehearsal in improving actual execution; the personality traits that determine who will excel; the baffling incidence of regression under stress; and the psychological limitations of the athlete. In addition, Dr. Ryan delves into the coach's relationship with the athlete, how to pick the athlete who will do well, and the impact of role playing and psychological barriers on performance.--from inside jacket
