much more than about skiing

teaches you how to let go and be in the moment

As I'm off skiing soon this was a practical choice. Not my favourite type of book. I prefer to lose myself within the pages than take mental notes.

Great book. I always read this before going skiing, and take it with me. By now I think I have internalised the material but there are some important concepts I remind myself about.

Leave it to me to ski once and then need to read a book about skiing. The irony is that this book is all about not thinking, not over analyzing, not criticizing yourself. It's like a yoga manual disguised as a skiing book. I'm glad I read/skimmed it, and will try to remember to just breathe next time I ski.

I may revisit this book after I have read The Talent Code by Coyle.

How to learn complex activities with Deep Deliberate Practice.

He also writes on Tennis, Stress, and Work
