Orlick (human kinetics, U. of Ottawa, Canada), a sports psychologist, describes to readers how they can succeed in sports, school, career, and relationships using specific techniques he outlines. He discusses the importance of focus, commitment, mental readiness, positive images, confidence, distraction control, and ongoing learning, and illustrates applying these ideas through examples of well-known athletes who have achieved their goals. Other chapters cover self-examination, using intensity and relaxation, simulating success, self-hypnosis, having a positive perspective, setting everyday goals, facing challenges, and coaching. This edition has been updated and contains new chapters on deciding and choosing a path. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
