Shelves: 2018-read
The book started out decent, as he explains and uses research that it really is "nurture" instead of "nature." He uses the example of African Americans being great at basketball, which is true, but only because that they have more than likely played it all of their lives. And, since everyone thinks African Americans are just naturally good at basketball, it leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy. But once that was out of the way, I think the book went downhill, at least for me. He explains some ...more

Great read if in doubt of personal physical capability. Running theme of the book is 'what the mind conceives, the body believes'.
A must read for serious athletes, coaches, trainers.
Some amazing step by step guides on several meditation techniques also.

A Dated Waste of Time

I bought this book on a whim (was on my Amazon reading list, but I cannot remember who or where it was recommended). A complete waste of time exploring psychological hypotheses with no real recipe given on what does work. The author tries too hard to be funny and colloquial in his writing - it only comes across as if the book should not be taken seriously.

Good book... but not written in a way instructional books should be. Highly entertaining though.

A journey of a regular guy to become a world champion in power lifting. According to him when he decided to start powerlifting even his sister laughed not speaking about many other people.

He mostly focuses of psychological aspect of the journey and his view is that mental fitness is the most important contribution to success of an athlete.

He talks about Qigong as useful technique. Mentions factors such noice and lightning. Significant attention is given to establishing long, medium and short
This books is so full of different techniques that is can become overwhelming to read cover-to-cover. You could probably spend a lifetime trying to develop all the tools that Judd offers (as he has). I suggest reading until you find a particular technique you want to acquire and begin practicing immediately. Spending time on a single technique will give you an appreciation for the amount of time and practice that goes into learning and incorporating the technique into your daily routines.

I took my time reading this, a chapter here and a chapter there - in between other books.

It is like an old freind now, and I find myself re-reading a few chapters which is not something I do often.

Stellar content on focus!
