Fantastic. Wish I would have read this years ago

I've now purchased 5 copies of this book to give as gifts. Fantastic material covering everything needed to reach what Loehr calls the IPS Ideal Performer State. I also like that Loehr includes a section on physical conditioning being key to being mentally tough. I have two friends who are professional MMA fighters and they've got a lot out of this book as well. Highly recommended.

The New Toughness Training For Sports

Very interesting points made in this book. It's a quick read and very well-written.

Greatest book on mental preparation for sports

All I can say is that my husband a college baseball coach of 35 yrs thought this book was so important he sent it to the Cubs trainer and the pitching coach for the Padres!

This book changed my life!

This little book read like a novel. It helped me understand better what I already knew and opened my eyes on aspects I was not aware of. The principles and philosophy described apply not only to sports, but to life in general. Anybody who has ambitions beyond sitting on the couch watching TV all day/night should read this book.

A step-by-step guide to competitive toughness training.

I loaned my "Mental Toughness" book (his first) to a friend who has yet to return it so I ordered this book written 12 years later. I devoured it in a 6 hour plane trip, loaned it to my coach for whom I had to buy another copy to get it back. And now my friend who still has my copy of his first book wants to borrow this one. I'll buy her one instead! Loehr discusses developing Mental, Physical, and Psychological toughness through evaluationg your wekanesses, developing strategies for turning them into strengths, and through a series of introspective exercises aimed at finding out why you are't as tough as you want to be. He teaches how to keep a training log and has a variety of ideas for developing yourself into an athlete who can play at the top of her game when it counts, during major competitions.
