Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sports psychologist Lynch has worked extensively with Olympic and world-class athletes; Huang authored Thinking Body, Dancing Mind (Bantam, 1994). This latest book is aimed at athletes at every level, from the recreational beginner to the seasoned competitor. Applying the principles of Taoism to physical training, the authors emphasize that the greatest reward of sport is the inner process itself and that external results such as winning or gaining recognition are mere by-products that come from ha0ving met the spiritual challenge. By watching the breath, carefully visualizing outcomes, repeating affirmations, and vigilantly applying insights learned through these techniques, physical training becomes a spiritual journey of joy and discovery.
