  2. 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
