Mind in Sport Summary


Mind in Sport: Directing Energy Flow into Success by K. Jennings

This work examines the nature of mental preparation in sport from a holistic perspective. Utilizing ecosystemic principles, the author - a sport's psychologist - integrates his theoretical insights with practical sporting examples. The book features interviews with four of South Africa's leading sportsmen, including Jimmy Cook, Brian Mitchell and Jonty Rhodes, which illustrate key concepts of successful mental preparation. The mental training suggested in this book moves beyond winning. Kenneth Jennings contends that an athlete should strive for mind-body "oneness" during activity. He argues that the key to becoming inwardly motivated lies in "balance in thinking" and in creative energy flow. Rather than gearing his approach to any particular sport, the author looks at themes that are common to all sporting performances. The application of the key principles to other life contexts, such as working groups in business, is also explored. This book is aimed at the athlete, coach or sports psychologist, although it should also be of interest to any sport lover.
