    This review is from: Coaching the Mental Game: Leadership Philosophies and Strategies for Peak Performance in Sports and Everyday Life (Paperback)

    For amateur “weekend warrior” coaches such as myself this is a topic that is far to often barely touched on if talked about at all. Telling kids to concentrate, focus and be mentally tough without teaching it like any other skill is like giving them a bat with no instruction and telling them to hit. Some will pick it up better than others due to their own make-up but all can get much better with a coach teaching them. The mental game can be taught as a skill the same as any physical skill we teach them.

    This book is one that has the authentic “been-there-done-that” feel to it. It’s well organized with great real world examples and has multiple lists at the end of each topic on how to make our athletes aware of the mental game and how to practice getting better at it.

    This is a book you will read and re-read if you’re truly interested in being the best coach you can be. It’s one of those books where you can just open to any page and pick up a great idea or tip.

    I Wish I Had This Book When I Started Coaching!, September 12, 2003

    Harvey Dorfman is a no-BS kind of coach and his latest book is a great tool for coaches, teachers, managers, or anyone who wishes to get the edge. As a former basketball coach at various levels, I wish this book was available 15 years ago because it would have saved me a lot of trouble and mistakes!

    Coach Dorfman covers three vital areas in the book: The Coach as Leader, Communicator, and Teacher; Impact Terms for Coaches, and Impact Terms for Athletes. He provides real life examples from professional, college, and high school coaches and athletes that are easy to relate to.

    This is the 4th time I bought this book. I have given three away and the last one is worn out. Trying to make the most out of a player’s ability is not complete until the mental aspect is addressed and this book helps with that approach. If you coach baseball, you need to have a copy.
