Description

The Brave Athlete solves the 13 most common mental conundrums athletes face in their everyday training and in races. You don't have one brain - you have three; your ancient Chimp brain that keeps you alive, your modern Professor brain that navigates the civilized world, and your Computer brain that accesses your memories and runs your habits (good and bad). They fight for control all the time and that's when bad things happen; you get crazy nervous before a race, you choke under pressure, you quit when the going gets tough, you make dumb mistakes, you worry about how you look.

What if you could stop the thoughts and feelings you don't want? What if you could feel confident, suffer like a hero, and handle any stress? You can.

The Brave Athlete from Dr. Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson will help you take control of your brain so you can train harder, race faster, and better enjoy your sport.

Dr. Marshall is a sport psychology expert who trains the brains of elite professional athletes. Paterson is a three-time world champion triathlete and coach. Together, they offer this innovative brain training guide that is the first to draw from both clinical science and real-world experience with athletes.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

F-ing good book

I normally just click on the stars and do not leave a review. But this book is going down as one of my top ten books of all time to listen to on a run (and I read about 24 sports books a year). Every chapter gets better and better until the best chapter is left for last. This is also one of the only audible books that has a decent pdf that goes with it.

Well worth a listen- useful and accessible

Great book with real life experiences. Didn’t realise it was their first book until they said so at the end. Very polished production. Good use of humour and useful information. Really enjoyed it.

Should be titled "The Brave Elite Athlete"

If you're a pro or elite athlete, then you might benefit from this book. Fair warning, you should listen to the sample audio first, just to make sure you can understand the Scottish dialects, especially Lesley's narration. (Note: if you hear them say "re-juice" what they are actually saying is "reduce." "Fook" means "fuck." Seriously. I laughed out loud when I heard them swear, which is frequently.)
I'm not an elite, but I'm an experienced endurance athlete and trying to come back after an injury. It was discouraging to hear each chapter start out with the author heaping scorn upon other methods (for coping with pre-race jitters and anxiety) -- many of which I've tried with varying degrees of success -- and then for the chapter to end up with just another version of another idea that's not so new. Also, I heard maybe 5 or 6 derisive references to "your local 5K Turkey Trot," then I just gave up listening. Sorry Simon and Lesley, but that's where I'm starting out again after a long recovery. It might not be a relevant or important goal for you or your clients, but it's an important next step for me.
The book is unique in that it employs plenty of tough talk and swearing, which is what some people might need. I was hoping for more actionable things.

interesting and practical

...the authors also did an amazing job reading the audio book version. Kept me interested and wanting to find opportunities to try their strategies. Also made me laugh out loud quite a few times.

Best sport psychology book I've read

Great information, well organized, factual and scientifically sound. Fantastic narration by the authors kept it really engaging from start to finish.

A must-have for runners of all levels!

The audiobook starts off pretty slow and spends far more time than necessary explaining the anatomy of the brain and its functions in athletic performance. I was ready to turn it off and get my money back, no joke. But I stuck it out and I'm glad I did! I'm a competitive runner of 10 years, and played volleyball for the better part of my youth (all the way up to collegiate level), and despite the number of coaches and pep talks I've had, and books/articles I've read, I still walked away from this audiobook with new information that was 100% relatable and applicable.

While I'm a more serious athlete, my boyfriend is a new runner of just 3 months. We listened to this every morning on the way to work while carpooling, and he thought he probably wouldn't gain much from it since it seemed more geared toward experienced athletes. I was pretty shocked at how much he took away from the book and how broad of an audience the book actually targetted. New runners: This book is definitely for you. Experienced runners who think they know everything: This book is EVEN MORE for you.

Deal with that boring introduction and anatomy chapter and your performance will reward you in thanks.

Oh also, their little puns and jokes are actually really silly and hilarious for those who don't take themselves too seriously ;)

It was exactly what I needed!

I loved this book! As a triathlete knee deep in Ironman training, this book came at the exact moment I needed it. I fact my whole training team has decided we needed this together. How can three different people be going through the same mind boggling shit storm of self doubt. I love the “bonus pdf” workbook. And don’t mind the f-bomb being dropped , just can’t listen with kids around. But it is what I am thinking anyway, “where the f—- is the next feed station.” The “Chuck a Duck” has become a great training tool for me.
I would recommend this to any athlete.

great book to help you get out of your head

loved the detailed way the authors explained our the brains and how the conflict of these brains create our emotions/thoughts/internal conflict.
it is one of many books that I've read recently talking more about croc/chimp brain, with others more towards business (principles, pitch anything etc). definitely could relate to a few nuggets in this book, such as the tapering off blues.
working towards races being a chance to deliver a flawless process, using the 1%ers to elevate your performance, really hit home and is something we should all remind ourselves of. this mindfulness approach works in the office, relationships and for athletic endeavors.
