I bought the book a while back. I was just looking up other books and decided to write a review for this one. This book helps anyone who reads it, maybe not athletically so much as MENTALLY. A huge part of the game is mental, and developing a personal playing strategy. I thought this book helps tremendously for aspiring players and future coaches.
