Reviews


For many years, I've admired Dr. Csikszentmihalyi's pioneering work and tried to apply his concepts on the football field. Some people have labeled my approach as 'intense, ' but the more accurate term might be 'in flow.' Being totally absorbed in the task at hand is essential to becoming a sports champion. Flow in Sports tells you how to get into that positive, winning mindset.

Head Coach, Super Bowl Champion Dallas Cowboys (1992 and 1993)
Head Coach, NCAA National Champion University of Miami (1987) Flow in Sports is a fascinating read. Finally, someone has put into print what I always strive for when I work out and compete. For athletes who are looking for a book that shows how to maximize their sense of enjoyment and unleash their true potential, this is a goldmine of information.
