Recommends it for: athletes
This book is designed to help athletes get stronger mentally physically and emotionally. It goes into great detail about all the types of weakness and how to improve them. It also includes training exercises to mark your progress in all kinds of categories. The theme of the book is to improve all aspects of your game.This book is similar to most sports movies because the protagonist team always has to overcome the same physical emotional and mental hurtles that are talked about in this book.

I have this love hate relationship with sports psychology books.

On one hand--I'm an active brazillian jiujitsu competiutor in my thirties and I never competed or participated in sports in high school or college--it is good for me to read this stuff. My mental game is sorely lacking. I compete often so it is good for me to be feeding myself this material and constantly improving my mindset.

On the other hand, I get bored reading this stuff. There isn't really a story (except for anecdotes pepper

If I could give 10 stars I would. Best book, not just on toughness in sport, but life in general. Anyone looking to be more resillient in any area of their life (work, family, relasionships) should make this book their next book.

My uncle gave me this book in High school and it has been one of the most influential books to my life. Before this book I didn't think about playing sports I just did. For some reason I just connected with this book and have re-read, and recommended many times over the years. I've read countless sports books and this one will always be at the top for me. ...more

I read it like 15 years ago so I don't really remember. But come to think of it, I am pretty tough. That doesn't look like it spelled right....tough. Ram Tough. It looks like though. Anyway, I don't know if it's because I read this book, but ask around, I'm pretty tough. I mean I've been training for it so......you know......for sports. Yeah, when it comes to sports I am definetly tough. I don't like to brag, but I've training for it, you know, for toughness.....in sports especially. So I guess ...more

This was the first competitive book I've read, and I love it. I am not sure if it is because this book is truly amazing or if it is simply because I love competition, but this book was jampacked with wonderful insights! It helped me understand the whole picture of mental, physical, and emotional health. All three work together to perform a tough athlete who performs at their peak. If you are an athlete aiming to perform their best, read this book. It does not disappoint. ...more

This book shaped me. I read it in high school as a tennis team assignment, but still find quotes come to mind from it when I'm in tough situations. It is all about being in control of your physical, mental, and emotional self so you can be in your ideal performance state, which we all want to be in at all times in everything we do. You don't need to read it cover to cover, but it's worth pulling some concepts out of. ...more

Competitive sport is tough on the mind. So the mind requires as much toughening and training as the body. Loehr provides a no-nonsense walk-through on how the mind and body work in unison to competitive success, or how the mind can obstruct it. I get several clues from this book that I use in my daily training and in races. Nothing revolutionary, but common sense in a well organized fashion.

This author had some interesting ideas about how to compete at your top level more consistently. Some of the ideas were standard, some were new. The book was only 200 pages and probably didn't really need to be that long but was worth the read. ...more

It was OK. So much of this was common sense but it had some good tid bits. My son was reading it. His coach recommended it.

I preferred this book to The Mind Gym. Both are great, but this one resonated with me a little more. Every athlete should read both these books.

The book is no longer new, but is still very timely and uselful. Love the concept applied to business and particularly a job search. Lots of great tips and motivators.
