      One of my favorite books over the past 12 months, this is a book I will read/listen to on a yearly basis! I think it’s great that so many of the illustrations are sports related but it doesn’t really matter because this book is applicable to all walks of life. Are you a leader of people? Do you want to make some positive changes? If the answer to either of these is, yes, I recommend you read this book.

      I was eager to read this book as Rick Peterson is a renowned pitching coach and sports psychologist who has an excellent reputation for bringing the best out of the baseball pitchers he works with.

      Good practical advice but really missed the potential to be a more comprehensive sports psychology book. Was hoping for a more detailed look at preparation methods across different disciplines. Probably should of read Tools of Titans instead.

    5. Bobbie on said:

      Peterson and Hoekstra offer some practical and helpful suggestions on ways to handle this situation of crunch time, stressed with pressure on a deadline while wanting to be successful. Not only is this a good read, it's a beneficial book that can help to succeed by learning how to handle crunch time better. I recommend it to the reading community.

      Glad i got to read this even though it was in a different field that i am used to but totally understood and can apply it!

      Might be interviewing Rick Peterson this week. Weirdly it's the second thing I've read that mentioned and championed Epictetus' beliefs lately.
