My friend Bill Thierfelder, a great leader and motivator, puts the words and descriptions to what we leaders try to do every day to challenge ourselves and our teams to be at our best, all the time. —Coach Mike Krzyzewski, from the Foreword

Dr. Bill Thierfelder knows what it takes to win. As a student at the University of Maryland he dominated the high jump, winning fame as an All-American and Irish national champion. Later he earned his doctorate in sports psychology. He became a private coach and mentor to the world\'s top athletes...and revealed to them his hard won secrets for success.

In Less Than a Minute to Go: The Secret to World-class Performance in Sport, Business and Everyday Life, Thierfelder, now President of Belmont Abbey College, reveals the secrets to:

• Becoming a world-class performer
• Preparing your mind to win
• Making peak performance a common occurrence
• Playing with a passion that never ends

But Thierfelder does more than give peak performance techniques.

In these pages he shows why sports are worthy of our deep attention and effort, whether as athletes or as avid spectators and fans.

He shows how sports can and should engage the highest parts of our nature that, in fact, only when we are so engaged can we truly excel.

And he reveals how sports train and prepare us for other arenas...where we all are players and where our choices have more significance than any World Series or Super Bowl.

Join Dr. Bill Thierfelder in an exploration of sport—and of life—as you have never considered them before.

Let this world-class athlete, mentor and coach teach you what he has taught so many others, from college students to superstars: How to give your very best when the clock is ticking...everything is on the line...and you have Less Than a Minute to Go.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Less Than A Minute To Go is a blueprint for people who want to excel. Dr. Thierfelder's background and training enable him to expertly intertwine the experiences of sports and life. If you want to learn what it takes to be successful and improve your quality of living, this is the book to read." --Jerry Richardson, NFL Team Owner, Carolina Panthers

"As a 5x Major League Baseball All-Star, there were many times where I was 'in the zone'. The crowd was silent, the baseball moved in slow motion looking like a beach ball and everything that could go right did. Away from the baseball diamond, my heart yearned to be in the zone as well, where I could have peace and joy despite the circumstances in my life. Dr Bill's book will help you play your game and live your life in the zone! This book will not only help you to be the greatest athlete you can be but it will inspire you to be the SAINT God calls you to be." --Mike Sweeney, Former Kansas City Royal, now Studio Analyst for the Major League Baseball (MLB) Network

"In this fast-paced read Dr. Thierfelder pulls back the curtain to reveal the psychological and physical training secrets of world-class professional athletes and Olympians alike. This Pro-Sport Doctor and Sports Agent rattles the cage of traditional training techniques to produce immediate, remarkable and quantifiable, results. He leaves zero margin for excuses or mediocrity and unabashedly reminds all of us that virtue and hard work are currency in our everyday lives. This is so much more than another self-improvement book; it is a blue print for turning your peak performance into a common occurrence. Less Than A Minute To Go is as appropriate and necessary for a business person, parent or military leader as it is for a coach. If you are leading anybody (and we are all leading somebody) you need to read, Less Than a Minute To Go!" --Michelle Holden, Leadership and Management Consultant

"If you love peak experiences - moments of acting perfectly in the right way at the right time in the right place - you will learn here how to acheive them ever more frequently. I don't quite trust people who don't love and respect sports. I trust Bill Thierfelder a lot! He gets it. He sees the sheer beauty of the perfect act - of doing exactly the right thing, at the right time , in the right way - especially in almost impossible circumstances."  --- Michael Novak, author of The Joy of Sports

"Bill Thierfelder has taken sports to a whole new level in this comprehensive look behind the scenes as an Olympian, sports agent, and president of one of the best small colleges on the planet. He will show you there is an alternative to the muscle-breaking, steroid pill-taker and the whiny athlete who is making millions. Bill shoots with .50 caliber automatic bullets at the current sports scene and if you are there, or just curious, read this with your headlights and siren on!" -- Humpy Wheeler, former President of Charlotte Motor Speedway and legendary NASCAR promoter.
