Sport Psychology Reviews

"Lavallee, Kremer, Moran and Williams are all well respected authors in the field and have produced a 'must read' second edition to their text Sport Psychology: Contemporary Themes. Covering the core topics within the discipline in a consistent and systematic 'theory to practice' format, the book delivers an interesting, insightful and informative read. I would recommend the book to both undergraduates and postgraduates with a focus on Sport Psychology." - Professor Ian Maynard, Professor of Sport Psychology, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
