The world of sports psychology and in the introduction of mental skills coaches has exploded into the athletic mainstream over the last few decades. Before then, the attitude regarding such training was extremely conservative and “old school”—the prevailing philosophy was that “any athlete who needs to talk with a shrink needs to have their head examined.” Fortunately, with today’s modern athletes, the dark ages of mental training in sports have gone away and times have changed for the better. But as with any growing industry, there are lots of new and untested pathways to one’s mental performance training in practices and games. But depending on who you talk to, the advice that is given can vary widely—and sometimes, even be contradictory. The Secrets of Sports Psychology Revealed by Rick Wolff, one of the pioneers in the field of sports psychology, is based upon his many years of clinical, hands-on work with top professional and amateur athletes in a variety of sports. He provides real insight into what does—and doesn’t—work. Specifically: Do pre-game visualization techniques really work? Is it OK to be superstitious, or are those rituals counterproductive? Does taking a deep breath or two in a tight situation really help? What’s the best way to learn how to make adjustments in one’s game? These direct questions, and many others, are presented and answered in this easy to use how-to guide aimed directly at athletes and coaches. The answers are right to the point and are based upon the author’s observations and work over the years with top athletes.

Is your mind actually able to send and receive messages from other people’s brains? Explore these secrets now revealed by the author’s quest. Enjoy the facts and results of the latest neuroscience as they now unfold. Revelations of Your Self-Help Book Secrets begins with explaining the brain’s function, the role of quantum physics, and our current incomplete knowledge of the neuroscience of dreaming. This fascinating journey through science and self-help literature explores what we call “psychic phenomena.” Author Lancaster Adams is a medical doctor, surgeon, scientist, and medical missionary. In the book, he describes his quest to comprehend the underlying science of a disturbing dream, one with a premonition he had just before his father’s illness killed him. Across a span of 6,000 miles, the dream communicated hard facts about his father’s previously unknown mortal illness. The incident prompted real communication that confirmed his father’s impending death, prompting him to ask how this type of premonition is possible. Using light-hearted humor and anecdotes, Revelations illuminates how our brains actually work. Perhaps through our shared humanity, we can identify aspects of our lives that will prove we are not alone in an existential nothingness. And, perhaps we can also learn the answers our brains hold that the best computers in the world can’t answer.
