Whether it's understanding how a player copes with the pressures of taking a penalty, or how a coach motivates their team, sport psychology helps us to get into the athlete's mind. In this enlightening overview, the authors integrate biological, social and cognitive approaches to investigate the impact of behaviour, thoughts and feelings on performance and help us comprehend the psychological effects of playing sports. Whatever your level of study, this wide-ranging introduction will give you a deeper understanding of the effect of key psychological principles on the experience and performance of sports.
