From Publishers Weekly:

Although successful athletes credit attitude, motivation and visualization for many of their accomplishments, few jocks spend even as much as 5% of training time in mental preparation, athletic mental trainer Loehr contends. Development of that element of sports is the purpose of this step-by-step guide to what the author calls the Athletic Training System. Although the text sometimes reads like a long locker-room lecturecomplete with jargon (ideal performance state, positive energy flow, etc.)there is useful advice about self-concepts, muscle-relaxation, meditation and controlling emotions that make this worthwhile for the committed athlete.

From Library Journal:

Loehr believes that mental toughness is learned, not inherited. To help acquire the skill, he offers a four-part formula of self-discipline, self-control, self-confidence, and self-realization. The goal is to minimize the effect of a competitor's negative attitudes and achieve a balance between mind and muscle. This work is a comprehensive primer, though it covers much the same ground as Charles Garfield's Peak Performance ( LJ 6/15/84) and John Syer and Christopher Connolly's Sporting Body, Sporting Mind ( LJ 6/15/84).
