Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA Working from the premise that ``it's the state of feeling great that produces great performance,'' the authors demonstrate in a readable manner the technique of moving from one Internal Energy State to another. With the aid of charts, readers are guided through a variety of strategies that include visualization, breath control, and humor. If the authors' message is absorbed and practiced, this book may enter the ``one of the most important books ever read'' category. YAs and others will find that these principles can be applied to all areas of their personal lives. Anne D. Johnson, formerly at St. John's School, Houston
