  1. NEW! Sport Psychology, 2nd Edition

    Sport Psychology, Performance Enhancement, Performance Inhibition, Individuals, and Teams,Second Edition has an engaging two-color design, and includes more online instructor resources such as a companion website, chapter-by-chapter test questions, PowerPoint lecture slides, video links and recommendations, and more!

    "The book is thorough with a very large range of topics covered, some being particularly unique compared to other textbooks. There seems to be an increasing awareness within the field of factors that inhibit performance, rather than a sole focus on performance enhancement, and this new edition captures this shift rather well. Within the performance enhancement chapters that do have some overlap with other textbooks, Professor Gallucci conveys a deeper understanding of the complex issues surrounding these topics, which is a welcome advancement within the field."
    - Ian Taylor, Loughborough University, UK, School of Sport, Exercise and Health Science

    "This is a well-written book that will be of interest to athletes and coaches interested in improving their understanding of sport psychology and their own psychological approach to sport. Current theory and research in the psychological factors are discussed, and these are explained in a very readable manner."
    - Rafael E. Romo, Texas A&M International University, Curriculum and Pedagogy

  6. Mental Toughness, The Mindset Behind Sporting Achievement, Second Edition

    Mental toughness is one of the most common terms used in sport – by athletes, coaches, spectators and the media. However, it is also one of the least understood terms. This book examines the characteristics and development of mentally tough sport performers, and presents the cutting-edge research in this area. Within these chapters, the author proposes that mental toughness is a personality style and mindset, and presents a compelling case for its inclusion within the positive psychological paradigm.

    Now packed with even more rigorous scientific evidence and bang up-to-date anecdotes from the world of sport, the book presents a fascinating explanation of why some athletes are successful, and how and why they stay on top.

  8. Planet Sport

    Series: Shortcuts

    Sport generates some of the most intense feelings and levels of commitment. It is big business globaly, but also the source of the most powerful personal identifications and individual and collective pleasures. Sporting events are routine and embodied, whether in the gym, on the field or at the training ground, and they are also spectacular, for example in mega events at the stadium or, for followers at a distance, through the media of television, radio and the Internet. Large numbers of people are caught up in personal and collective investment and public engagement with sport. Why does it matter so much?

  9. Sport and Exercise Psychology

    Written in a lively, accessible style, the book is brimful of vivid contemporary examples and insights from the world’s leading athletes, to provide a compelling bridge between theory and practice for undergraduate and postgraduate students of sport psychology, health psychology, sport science, physical education, kinesiology and leisure management.

    Instructors who adopt the book will be able to access a wealth of online teaching resources.
