Overview

Inner Game Basketball grew out of conversations between Chris Mullin and Tom Mitchell about players, coaches, parents and the game of basketball. The book is written specifically for players who want to gain a competitive edge and a better understanding of the habits and behaviors that are at the heart of an athlete's success: confidence, communication, work ethic, teamwork, practice and concentration. It is also useful for parents and coaches who want to help players develop their mental game.

Inner Game Basketball is not about the Xs and Os of basketball. You will not learn how to run a play, shoot a free throw, or break a full court press. Rather, you will learn about the values within the game of basketball that help you become a better player on the court and a better person in life. Through very basic and easy-to-understand messages and exercises, you will be able to put the things you learn from this book into practice immediately.

Have fun reading Inner Game Basketball and take the time to let the messages sink in. Practice the drills at the end of each chapter and strive for personal mastery both on and off the court!
