Performance coach Alan Stein Jr. shares the secret principles used by world-class performers that will help you improve your productivity and achieve higher levels of success.
High achievers are at the top of their game because of the discipline they have during the unseen hours. They have made a commitment to establish, tweak, and repeat positive habits in everything they do. RAISE YOUR GAME examines the top leaders in sports and business and proves that success is a result of the little things we do all the time.
The basic principles provided in RAISE YOUR GAME are simple, but not easy. We live in an instantly downloadable world that encourages us to skip steps. We are taught to chase what's hot, flashy and sexy and ignore what's basic. But the basics work. They always have and they always will.
RAISE YOUR GAME will inspire and empower you to commit to the fundamentals, create a winning mindset, and progress into new levels of success.

This is a great book even for RETIREES. We never stop being members of teams no matter what stage of life we are in. Alan's words inspired me to examine my commitment to self-awareness, communication and service even though I no longer prowl the sidelines on Tuesday and Friday nights.
I've anticipated this book from the minute I heard about based on following Alan on social media and hearing him speak at clinics. The book didn't disappoint -- in fact, it exceed expectations! Alan covered all the bases by breaking up the book in three areas: The Player -- The Coach -- The Team. Regardless of your sport, this book can elevate a program. In fact, I think it's lessons go beyond sports and can benefit any group or organization. Thanks Alan for sharing a lifetime of teaching!
Alan's book is full of lessons for everyone. As a college basketball coach, there is so much information to share with the players and I will be able to do my job better. You don't have to be involved in sports to be able to Raise Your Game by-as Alan writes-making the choice-to act. As you read, you'll feel Alan's passion and his true desire to assist others in getting better. There should be no hesitation in buying this book. Coach Brad
