About this title


Behavior theory explains not only why we do what we do, but especially skiing and ski teaching behavior.

From the Author:

     Several years ago, Lance Armstrong and his ghostwriter, Sally Jenkins, wrote a book entitled "It's Not About the Bike". They were right. It wasn't about the bike. It was about what we do with a bike, or, biking. More precisely, it was about bicycling and how it brought Lance back to life after his bout with cancer. Whether biking, bicycling, or coming back to life, we are doing something, or, behaving.
     The same can be said about any other thing that we do and especially sports. For example, tennis is not about the racquet. It is about hitting a tennis ball or playing tennis. Similarly, rowing is not about the oars and the boat, but about making the boat move. Running is not about the shoes, but what we do with the shoes. Fishing is not about the fish. And, skiing is not about the skis. In all instances, it is about what we do when we do them, or, our behavior. What follows is a more in depth analysis of what is going on when we are doing something and, in particular, skiing.
