“In The Zone” the name of the book is great for the type of book it is, Because this book does a great job of telling how the human body and brain react when there “In The Zone”.

This is a lovely book for athlete sorts of any stripe to take in. By chance, I read it in bits but it worked out well to consider the ideas that it presented. The last roughly 1/4 - 1/5 of the book is all of the references that the book is based on. So while it could come across as "woo woo", it is quite well researched "woo woo".
