Are you "only as good as your last game"? Is it really just a matter of "keeping your eye on the ball"? The second edition of Pure Sport explains in everyday language the whys and wherefores of contemporary sport psychology pinpointing what works and what doesn't when it comes to performance enhancement. As the title suggests, Pure Sport goes back to basics by highlighting practical concerns for those who are involved with competitive sport at every level from junior club member to Olympic athlete. Drawing on their considerable experience as both academic researchers and applied sport psychologists, the authors present a powerful array of techniques for channelling and harnessing mental skills with the goal of improving sporting performance. The book is unique in that it is based solidly on the latest thinking across sport psychology but is presented in a style which is immediately accessible to a wider audience. In this fully updated second edition the authors have taken the opportunity to revamp chapters with new examples and anecdotes, and have made the book even more accessible for those without a formal background in psychology. Pure Sport, Second Edition is essential reading for anyone with an active involvement or interest in sport, it will help coaches, teams, and sportsmen and women to develop their mental edge, and realise their true potential in sport and through sport.
