Overview

Experiencing Sport: Reversal Theory marks an important advance in the understanding of personality, motivation and emotion in sport performers. Eleven renowned contributors from Europe, North America, Australia and Asia present the very latest reversal theory research across a range of recreational and elite level sports. The book opens with an outline of the basic concepts of reversal theory and a discussion addressing some of the challenges and difficulties facing reversal theory researchers in sport. The contributors go on to provide detailed accounts of their own innovative research, the different strategies and measurement techniques they used, and how their findings support reversal theory and usefully contribute to knowledge in sport psychology. The book closes with a summary of general conclusions and a discussion about the future direction of reversal theory sport research. With its extensive review of the latest research findings, its presentation of a range of different research methodologies and its wealth of ideas for future research, this book is highly recommended for psychologists, researchers, teachers, and postgraduate students in the fields of sport psychology, human movement sciences, and sport sciences/studies.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathy Silgailis, PhD (William Paterson University)
Description: This is a review of reversal theory sport research which was presented at the First International Workshop on Motivation and Emotion in Sport at the University of Tsukuba in 1996. It also functions as an overview of the basic concepts of reversal theory and critical issues which must be addressed when conducting future research on this topic.
Purpose: The purpose is to explain the basic concepts of reversal theory and measurement issues in reversal theory research, review results of reversal theory sport research, and discuss challenges related to future research.
Audience: This is an advanced sport psychology book and therefore will appeal to researchers and graduate students in sport psychology.
Features: This book is organized in three sections. Section I covers the basic concepts of reversal theory and measurement challenges in reversal theory sport research. Section II is a review of research related to high-level and elite performers, and Section III contains research data on recreational participants. An important feature is the appendixes which contain three questionnaires commonly used in this research. Clear graphs, tables, and illustrations are also provided, in addition to current references related to sport reversal theory research.
Assessment: Research sport psychologists and advanced graduate students will find this book useful. It is well written and logically organized. However, a section specifically addressing the practical applications of reversal theory in sport would make this book appealing to sport psychologists who work directly with athletes.
