Although I didn't dislike the book. I'm surprised at the sheer raving in reviews about it which mention no negatives.
The book was Jerry Moffats interpretation of sports psychology that's already widely out there, having already read several similar books especially 'The Chimp Paradox.' By Dr Steve Peter I don't think it brought anything new to the table, although I did find it more succinct and enjoyed the anecdotes.
My main gripes were with the editing, the splicing of quotes sometimes mid sentance made sections hard to read, the constant quoting of Bruce Lee became grating, and as someone above mentioned it needed proofreading.
I did find as a low grade climber the whole book read like it wasn't aimed at me. Although the techniques can be applied to all climbers the constant examples of aiming to climbing 8a+ and winning competitions were unrelatable and I found that demotivating.
All in I think I got something out of it, it reminded me to practice things I already knew and I don't regret buying it. However, £30 is a lot. I would sacrifice the fancy cover/diary aspect, which for me doesn't add anything, for it to be a cheaper.
