"The contents of this book are truly unique, as no other resource of its kind exists. Many of us who have taught applied sport psychology graduate courses and worked with athletes would have benefitted considerably if such a text had existed previously. Fortunately, it does now. And, fortunately, sport psychologists with interests in directly applying their knowledge to athletes will benefit considerably in the present and the future."

-From the foreword by Robert N. Singer, professor emeritus, Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology, University of Florida
