Working from a combined vast experience, the authors break down the elements of mental toughness into a package that is easy to understand for players, managers, coaches, and parents. Their goal is winning baseball. They show how every at-bat or pitch is a test, particularly as players advance to higher levels. The book will help build attitude, confidence, and the ability to focus and make adjustments, helping players reach their maximum performance. In Mental Toughness, many leading professional players share their insights and offer a glimpse into the minds of major leaguers―how they think and why they act in the ways they do. Praise for Mental Toughness: "A very important book...it should be required reading for all professional players."―Keith Lieppman, Oakland A's director of player development. "I wish I'd had Mental Toughness around when I was a kid trying to figure out how to get to the big leagues and the Hall of Fame. It's a great book."―Don Sutton, Hall of Fame pitcher. "I can't imagine a better helper than Mental Toughness. It's a book that can show you how important the mental game is, and how to master it."―Orel Hershiser, Cy Young Award winner.

Review:

This well-done study will be useful to players, coaches, and students of the game of life. (M.L. Krotee CHOICE)

Athletes and coaches of any sport will appreciate the aspects of Mental Toughness. (Burt Angeli Daily News)

Use the lessons offered up from the sports world...and apply them to virtually every aspect of business: it works. (Diane C. Donovan, editor, Midwest Book Review Midwest Book Review)

Many of the lessons are valuable to life in general...in school, in business settings, even over the poker table. (Daniel Gabriel)

Athletes-especially teen athletes-will benefit from this solid self-help guide. (Library Journal)

Very impressive. This book should be a must-read for young players desiring to learn to succeed. (Dusty Baker, Chicago Cubs Manager)

Mental Toughness is so good that it is a must-read for future athletes and non-athletes alike. Reading this book will put everyone far ahead of the game. From all my experiences as an athlete, your mind controls everything. The sooner you learn how to match the mind with the physical ability, the sky is the limit. Good luck and good reading. (Mark McGwire)

This book is comprised of great stories, which I think could apply not only in sports but in the game of life. (Gary Carter, Hall of Fame Catcher, MVP in two World Series, 11 time All-Star)

I wish I'd had Mental Toughness around when I was a kid trying to figure out how to get to the big leagues and the Hall of Fame. It's a great book. It helps players, coaches, parents, and people in every walk of life figure out how to turn losses into speed bumps rather than roadblocks. Every agent and every team ought to be required to give this book to the players they represent and sign. (Don Sutton, Hall of Fame Pitcher, 324 wins, never missed a turn in the rotation in his 23-year career)

Getting to know my own mental skills and the minds of my opponents has always helped me be a tougher competitor. If that's something you aspire to, I can't imagine a better helper than Mental Toughness. It's a book that can show you how important the mental game is, and how to master it. (Orel Hershiser, Former Cy Young Award winner, World Series MVP, pitching coach for the Texas Rangers)
