Inner Game Basketball grew out of conversations between basketball great Chris Mullin and sports psychologist Tom Mitchell about players, coaches, parents and the game of basketball. The book was written specifically for players who want to gain a competitive edge and a better understanding of the habits and behaviors that are key to an athlete's success: confidence, communication, work ethic, teamwork, practice and concentration. It is also valuable for parents and coaches who want to help players develop their mental game. Though written by a Hall of Fame player and former basketball head coach, this book is not about the Xs and Os of basketball. Readers will not learn how to run a play, shoot a free throw, or break a full court press. Rather, they will learn about the values within the game of basketball that help you become a better player on the court and a better person in life. Through basic, easy-to-understand messages and exercises, athletes of all ages will be able to put the things they learn from this book into practice immediately.
