Sport psychology: from theory to practice
"Sport Psychology: From Theory to Practice, Fourth Edition" fills a need for an applied sport psychology book based on credible, published research. A deliberate attempt is made to base application on theory while avoiding scientific and statistical jargon so readers at various levels of education, past experience, and expertise can feel comfortable with the book's content. Sport examples from media publications and from the author's own experiences as a sport psychologist nurture the connection between the professional literature and real-life sport experiences.
