Went through this text while in my first semester of a Sports and Performance Psychology class, SOOOO GOOD! My outlook has changed for the better and I feel more excited and prepared than ever to move forward in this career. Would love to meet the author and shake his hand!

I started a class while I was deployed and knew that I wasn't going to receive a paper version of this book in time. While I do enjoy reading digital books, I've always preferred highlighter to paper for text books. Well, a kindle version of this book worked perfectly in a pinch. I downloaded the night before class and got an "A" in the class. In the future, I just might do another e-textbook. Oh yeah, the text was written clearly with excellent references. It could easily be a good leisure read. Not bad for a textbook.

While I initially purchased this book for a class that I was taking this semester, I was surprised by the fact that this book had opened my eyes to a whole other side of sports that I was failing to see.

Probably only 1 of the 2 or 3 textbooks I've read so far in college. The author has some really good points & its easy to comprehend even if you don't have a Sociology background. Thoroughly enjoyed this paired with the class I took. Came in good shape, going to send back soon.
