Summary
"The experience of flow is still one of the least understood phenomena in sport. And yet it is one of the richest, most memorable experiences an athlete will ever know. Some call it a natural "high." Others refer to it as being "in a zone." Whatever the label, flow is that elusive and desired state of consciousness that athletes, coaches, and psychologists have tried to understand, harness, and employ to their benefit ever since Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi first coined the term back in the early 1970s." "Flow in Sports both explains the phenomenon of optimal experience and identifies the key antecedents and conditions associated with its occurrence. Moreover, the authors specify several thoughts and actions that athletes and coaches can engage in to set the stage for flow to occur during training sessions and performances. Their insights are supported throughout the book with real-life examples, testimonial quotes, and research findings."--Jacket
