You will find it easy to read and apply to your own life and sport. The emphasis is on the practical application of sport psychology principles in order to actually improve your performance. You will learn about things like mental toughness, visualization, relaxation, motivation, leadership, how to avoid choking, and much more.

"Amazing work!" As a track coach, this book has been an amazing source for my team and myself. It is easily applicable to real world situations in sports and has actually helped me to focus and push myself in everyday situations. Closing the Gap is my number one resource for coaching my team, and I have already seen improvement in the athletes' performance. Sport psychology is without doubt the most important part of any athletic endeavor, and David Rockwood definitely knows what it is all about. I would recommend this book to anyone even remotely interested in sport psychology or any related subject.
