In his new book, I Hope the Hell I Win! Turning Hope into Reality... How Winners Win, Dr. Steven Rosenberg, Ph.D., brings to bear all of the knowledge and experience he has acquired during his career of helping professional athletes achieve peak performance, gathering his wisdom in one volume and thus enabling the athlete-at whatever level of expertise-to become the best athlete that one can be...and the best person one can be.
Dr. Rosenberg's holistic approach to becoming a good person and a good athlete, through adopting a sound philosophy of life combined with such techniques as hypnosis, meditation, biofeedback, visualization and nutrition, has practical applications for everyone. Readers, during the course of learning how to master the inner game to succeed at sports and life, will be treated to an exposure of a wide variety of techniques, including those already mentioned, plus yoga, transcendental meditation, Rolfing, t'ai chi ch'uan, and the power of positive thinking. While teaching us how to better listen to the body as well as the mind, Dr. Rosenberg also sheds light on the value of vitamin and mineral supplements. Finally, he shows us how to cope with sports injuries, highlighting the importance of focusing on prevention as much as on cure.
Backed up by extensive scientific research, he integrates all of the information and counsels us on how to take charge of our own minds through concentration, enabling us to take full control over our bodies; how to break the "disbelief barrier," freeing us all to break through to peak performance; and, ultimately, how we can harmonize body, mind and spirit into an integrated whole. This is a book that not only athletes everywhere, both professional and amateur, but everyone in everyday life will want to keep on their shelves. Thanks to Dr. Rosenberg, now we all "can do it!"
