Book Review - Stillpower

About the Book 
For years, athletes, coaches, parents, and organizations have searched for the secrets to optimum mental performance. However, in spite of a myriad of tools and techniques, success and contentment continue to be as elusive as ever, until now. Kramer's Stillpower offers a revolutionary explanation for this predicament and provides a basic, yet dynamic, approach for the future. In an accessible style, Kramer reveals the innate principles behind consistent achievement and highlights the misalignment between the experiences of all performers and the strategies of the coaches, psychologists, and experts who are hoping to help them. Virtually all of us -- athletes and non-athletes alike -- are looking outside of ourselves, trying to unlock the keys to happiness, freedom, and excellence with ease. Garret Kramer encourages us to look within to finally find the answers.

My Take on the Book
As a parent of a daughter who seems to excel at every sport that she puts her mind to, and I was amazed to find that the ideas presented in this book made so much sense. I found myself agreeing with so many of his ideas and it was because of these ideas that I kept wanting to read and read and it took me so little time to complete! Not being an athlete in school, I am always looking for ways to support my child in her pursuits and Mr. Kramer has given me so much to think about and to act on and I for one have to say thanks for this and for so much more.
