    Loved the book. Great little pearls of wisdom throughout. Loved the explanation on breathing techniques, self talk and goal setting.

    "For those who Compete"
    Would you listen to The Art of Mental Training again? Why?

    It is an excellent work that possesses lessons that will allow me to review and communicate with others and better develop my practice.


    What other book might you compare The Art of Mental Training to and why?

    I would compare it to Dan Millman's Way of the Peaceful Warrior. It very much has that vibe where a teacher is able to show the path to another. Another book it would go well with is Nerve by Taylor Clark. I have listened to both of them back to back and they pair well together.


    Which character – as performed by D. C. Gonzalez – was your favorite?

    The young wrestler who is panicked before his match. I have witnessed this so much in others and myself.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Art of Mental Training?

    Life is only a journey and unbeknownst to us our self-talk is the driver. That voice resides within and moves me in ways that are not positive. Listening to what is said - even in the deepest reaches of the psyche is of value. Changing their message is challenging and vital to being the Mental Warrior that resides within. It's only a journey, be at peace.


    Any additional comments?

    Be positive.

    "The art of mental training"

    Quite energising. I found it really uplifting. I was going through some personal turbulence when I stumbled into it and it was quite helpful in reversing some negative patterns that were beginning to cloud my thinking.

    "a lot of information put into one book"
    If you could sum up The Art of Mental Training in three words, what would they be?

    This book could be described as mental training guide. Has a lot of insights to other athletes strategies and has techniques and methods for you to become a better athlete.

    "A MODERN CLASSIC"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Mental Training to be better than the print version?

    This is an Excellent work that teaches "The Science of Achievement". I highly recommend either edition. Covers all the essentials in an entertaining and easy to understand story format while teaching one how to acquire the Champion Mindset and much more. This work was clearly created for listeners from all walks of life who want to never settle for accepting anything less than that which they can truly be.

    A simple and concise - Modern Classic.
