Editorial Reviews

Dustin Pedroia
Dorfman is the best sports psychologist in the world.
Jeff Krushell
You'd be hard pressed to find a better man in the sports world. I've seen Harvey work with perennial All-Stars, MVPs, ordinary players, amateur athletes and coaches; they all walk away better than they were before they met him.
Deirdre D. Young
The greatest gift I ever gave my son was an introduction to Harvey Dorfman. Harvey is a gifted and skilled practitioner ... a remarkable human being.
Jim Abbott
When I was playing major league baseball, Harvey Dorfman's teaching would help guide my approach, on and off the field. Little did I know that years after I had retired, I would still find myself asking how Harvey would view a certain situation.
David Brooks
Dorfman illuminates the way the body and the mind communicate with each other.
Roy Halladay
I truly believe the mental side of baseball saved my career. I thank Harvey for showing me the way.
