    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.

    Really good!

    This book is chalk full of interesting and helpful insights to change the way you approach your athletic training and performance. The book is root d in science but presented in a very accessible way.

    While this book is written for endurance athletes, it has helped me in all my athletic pursuits - golf, pickleball, etc.

    Perfect for endurance athletes of all sorts

    This book is full of advice you can apply to any type of endurance event. Read well and with humor, the information is easy to grasp and clearly focussed on potential problem areas. What you get is solidly grounded in science and some of the scientific details are included, but not to the extent that you feel overwhelmed if you don't have a science education. The authors both come from the world of triathlon--swim, bike, run as in Ironman or Xterra--but they are careful to make their lessons applicable to any competition that requires racing or training for extended (more than 30 minutes) sessions of one or more mode of progression. The suggestions provided will work for cross-country skiing, roller blading, racewalking, wheelchair racing, and so on. If you find the occasional four letter word off-putting, this may not be for you. The explanations are given in the same direct language that athletes use when talking amongst themselves on long workouts of all varieties.

    Never left a review before....

    I have done, probably, 9 mental toughness courses. I practice 2x a day; an hour at a time. I thought I had heard it all (just said with different words.) This book took me by surprise! I listened to it three times; the accompanying PDF is priceless. I'm very picky about the narrator of my audiobooks and these guys were amazing. I hope they write, and narrate, another book soon. Thank you, both!

    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.

    Really Disappointing

    First, let me say I’m in the U.S., and I found the accents of the readers, particularly Lesley, made them VERY hard to understand in parts ... plus she’s just not that good at telling a story. But I wasn’t reading the book for entertainment, I was reading it for knowledge which, as it turned out in the bitter end, I book didn’t really contain any of.
    I was particularly put off by the arrogance of the authors. Apparently feeling proud of yourself for finishing an Ironman is silly ... you must win it. Simply participating is, in their words, bullshit.
    I have never given what I would call a bad review before ... but the authors and the book in general deserve it.

    Terrible

    I thought the book was going to be about sports psychology. It was more about eating disorders. Not for the true athlete. Maybe for a beginner or for people with mental problems.
