Excellent, easy to follow
This book is an easy read and introduction to this topic, I bought it to use within my coaching of snooker but have found it beneficial in improving my outlook to life generally. I recommend this highly.

In pursuit of excellence,
excellence is what i wish,
once i was a feckless dreamer,
now no being is supreme,
so why waste time,
wallowing in ignorance,
why be just a big fat fish,
in a tiny little pond?
Look Beyond!
and if the quickest route
means a taste of forbidden fruit,
what the hey, it's all in pursuit of
excellence!
- Children of Eden
