This textbook is great for reviewing theoretical perspectives related to sport psychology. The contributing authors provide some contemporary approaches to older models. Future research implications are nice for students to assess and decide for dissertation interests.

very good book, sometimes too many studies, which makes it confusing to read in some chapters. However, in general this good provides a good broad overview of sport psychology.

I've never read such biased unscientific hogwash in my life. I got about halfway through when I realized the author is a gender politician spreading lies and propaganda. At one part of her book, she states that male athletes are less likely to use "moral" considerations during competitive sports and that female athletes are more likely to be concerned with things like fair play and honesty, etc. No surprise this nonsense is written by a female, and a feminist academic at that. Of the 180 pages I read (bear in mind, this narcissistic piece of garbage is more than 500 pages), it reads more like a man-hating rant. Empirical evidence alone disproves the author's theories of "female good, male bad." Female athletes try so hard to be "tough" that they often exhibit the most unsportsmanlike behavior. They are more likely to get into altercations on the basketball court, that's for sure. Sorry, but this is another book to add to the growing pile of post-modern crap. Not all of us are so gullible to buy into the idiotic blabbering of an elitist snot insulated inside her academic closet.
