5-0 out of 5 stars Great investment
When ever you buy a book containing psychology, you think to say "I knew that!", but this book pinpoints the essens of bowling psychology. I've focused on several things that for sure will make me a better bowler.

5-0 out of 5 stars very helpful book
I purchased this book to help with my bowling, since as anovice bowler,
I was dismayed by my embarrassing performance when bowling with friends.
I would bowl a strike and then have a string of gutter balls.

I found this book really helpful, not just for bowling, but for achieving excellence
in other sports. I was able to apply the lessons to other challanging areas in my life.

The book gives a comphrehensive overview of this incredibly popular sport.The writers have laid out a step by step mental
plan of action that accounts for most contigencies and can used when someone has to psychologically prepare
onselfto perform at a high level.

The use of acronyms such as RALLY ( react, accept, learn, lean, yes )and the examples
of positive self talk particularly useful.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best bowling books to date
I think this is one of the most up to date and detailed bowling books to date.It dives into the mental game aspect of the game and just helps you with the skills that most bowlers will need to take their game to the next level. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The most comprehensive so far
A must read for anyone with an injured horse.This book will expose you
to the whole world of physical therapy treatments utilized by physical therapist,
sports medicine doctors, body workers, and others in the human world which
therapists like Mimi Porter are applying to equines. History of these treatments,
covering over two decades, validates their effectiveness bythe thousands of horses
successfully returned to pre-injured condition.It's important to note most of the
therapies discussed are not offered by standard veterinarian care.I particularly
like the incorporation for bodywork techniques, such as, cranialsacral and
myofascial release which offer more effective healing than traditional massage.
And ifyou wantan alternative to injecting your horse with medication there is an
excellent section covering iontophoresis.Even though it is not a protocol book,
and finding someone that is trained in many of these methods can be difficult,it's the

individual awareness and knowledge that will create a demand for much needed equine therapists. Well written with many excellent photos make this an enlightening and enjoyable read.

5-0 out of 5 stars The New Equine Sports Therapy
I found Ms Porter's book to be indispensably useful regarding Equine Sports Therapy, and also interesting to read. Each chapter focuses on a major theraputic modality, and discusses its basic scientific theory, techniques for proper use, and pros and cons. Ms Porter's holistic approach to Equine Therapy was much appreciated. Throughout her book she supports the horse as an individual, and stresses that each plan of treatment must be centered on that horse's individual needs, rather than just based on a manufacture's recommendation.

I would recommend this book to any Equine Vet, Therapist or Care-giver. It's a valued addition to my library.

3-0 out of 5 stars so-so
I bought this book expecting a very in-depth well written book on equines. What I got is something quite diffrent though. It was vauge, and poorly written. If you a beginer however, it is a fine book, I will give it that. ... Read more

Product Description
The contemporary sport manager must be an entrepreneur who uses marketing and financing skills to yield optimum social and economic benefits. Financing Sport Second Edition provides the most in-depth exploration of traditional and innovative revenue acquisition methods for sport organizations.

The first edition of this groundbreaking text published in 1995 has been adopted in universities throughout the world and has been translated into Chinese and Japanese. Rather than simply updating sections of various chapters—common to most new editions—the authors approached each chapter as though writing the book for the first time. The business of sport is fast paced and ever changing. The content of the Second Edition captures the many new and creative ideas managers in sport organizations have implemented in response to their dynamic work environment. The second edition also maintains its original focus on conventional income sources available to sport organizations including ticket sales premium seating options concessions and the sale and execution of corporate sponsorships.

Financing Sport maintains a strong practical orientation. Numerous vignettes or mini-cases drawn from actual practice are interspersed throughout the book. Students enjoy knowing how capital financing and revenue acquisition practices are actually being used by sport organizations; therefore the authors include numerous real-world examples to illustrate many of the best practices employed by sport managers. This "nuts and bolts?treatment allows readers to confidently transfer the methods to effective practice. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A bit outdated but an easy, quick read and good information
The book is a bit outdated because some of the things it talks about in relation to some of the stadiums and things to come are in existence or never came to be.The concepts are relevant and can be applied in a useful manner.The book is written in such a way that anyone can comprehend the material.It's simple and straight-forward.The chapters are slightly long, but it all flows so it makes for a quick read.

2-0 out of 5 stars [Two-and-a-half stars out of Four] The CFL and Arena Football ARE NOT (!) Minor Leagues!!
Good, well written and intended book on Sports
Management and styles that have been successful,
but the lack of knowledge on the Canadian Pro
Football and Arena Football leagues is abismal!

Let;'s get this straight once and for all. The
NFL (National Fascist League) is not all that and
is only one of three Pro Football leagues oppora-
ting in North America. The CFL is now 101 yrs./ old
and the Arena League [now called Arena Football 1]
is going on twenty-four years and the NFL is now

In Minor League Pro Football there are currently
seven leagues, for example. Af2 (10 yrs. old) /
Indoor Football League (formerly know as the Inten-
se Football League) / Southern IFL / American Indoor
Football Association / Independent Indoor Football
League / Continental Indoor Football League {CIFL} &,
if it survives, the dying American Pro-Indoor Football
League (APFL). The NFL's game sucks! It's become a
big Corporate Crap League. NFL E was better and more

4-0 out of 5 stars College football fans should love it
This coffee-table book is a more-or-less pictorial history of college football, and contains many great full-color pics along with info and stories, and should make a great gift for a college football fan! While not the comprehensive history of college football such as say Ken Burn's is for baseball it contains many great full-page pictures from the last 100 years.In addition it includes summaries by decade of the great college football teams, epic games, "all-decade team,"Heisman winners, and innovative figures of the decade (although I'd personally say listing the conference Commissioner who created the "BCS" is a suspect honor...).

Also listed are fun "Campus Culture" tidbits by decade including major books, movies, news stories of the day, and other - everything from "the foxtrot" and Thomas Edison in the early part of the century to "facebook" and the O.J. verdict in the latter part.But the book is mainly devoted to college football - throughout the book are also featured great pieces on such legendary figures as Bear Bryant, Ernie "The Express" Davis, Dick Butkus, Knute Rocke, and stories such as the "U," the Flutie-comeback game, and more. In addition to pictures also featured are many classic game-program covers; one other creative feature is a large illustrated foldout of the "all-century" team - greatest players/coaches.

Overall, a very enjoyable collection of pics and information. One thing I found quirky - the book lists the national champs from each decade up to 30's, when they then are replaced by the Heisman award trophy winners. I suppose SI couldn't fit both on one page so just they stopped listing the national champs - but it seems strange they consider the individual award more important than team championships (in any event a listing of national champs can easily be found on-line, if one cares to, in tandem with reading this book). Overall, this book will provide college football or American sports fan plenty of enjoyment, and lives up to its title of "THE College Football Book!"

5-0 out of 5 stars Immensely Practical, Enlightening and Surprising
As the title suggests, this book was written for people who have interest in homeopathy and athletics and dance, but its value stretches beyond helping the athletically-inclined to perform better and more safely.This is the first homeopathy book I have read that constrains homeopathy to a specialized area: as such, it has deepened my understanding of homeopathy in general because it applies homeopathy to another area that I know something about, athletics, and that almost functions as another rubric through which I have been able to learn about all phases of diagnosis and treatment.It will be useful to the coach, sports medicine professional, athlete or significant other to an athlete.

It is obvious that Thomas knows athletes due to his use of varied examples throughout.According to the book's bio, he was a Physical Education Officer for the Royal Air Force, where he rehabilitated injured athletes.He captained the RAF at rugby and has led numerous expeditions to hike major mountain ranges.He began using remedies in 1976 and subsequently trained as a homeopath.He now practices in North Wales.

One of the illuminating things about this book is that it broadens the homeopathic concept of "correcting an imbalance" in a person.For years, I have used homeopathy to neutralize illnesses.Here, the definition of an "out of balance" person includes healthy people who get injured or who want to remain in balance when they are pursuing challenging athletic activities.

This book is complete in itself.You can use it even if you have no experience with homeopathy.Thomas uses a methodical approach to introducing homeopathy, which I include here in some detail since so little information is available on amazon.com.

The book is organized into 3 main sections:

*Homeopathy, A Basic Outline

Ch 1, Towards a Speedy Recovery: overall homeopathy primer, with sports examples. Includes comments about using homeopathy in conjunction with other treatments.
Ch 2, Homeopathy in Practice: background on the athletic patient, including physical and mental symptoms.Also references for older athletes.Choosing remedies and learning to use remedies in a methodical and practical way.
Ch 3, Principles of Homeopathic Treatment: more on homeopathy, dosages, provings, treating the specific injury or the whole person.
Ch 4, Homeopathic Symptomology: this chapter is excellent for overall learning.Thomas gives the best process for diagnosis that I've yet come across.It's very methodical and applicable to homeopathy in general.He illustrates the importance of the description of the pain, which shows you how to use the Materia Medica much better.You'll learn to differentiate between a tearing pain and a throbbing pain and how that can help you to choose the right remedy.A doable list of questions to ask.
Ch 5, Managing Homeopathic Treatment: more on remedies, prescriptions, dose frequency, changing symptoms.Excellent examples for dancers and athletes of several types and ages.

*Applying Homeopathy

Ch 6, Traumatic Injury and First Aid: you'll learn about administering remedies in different ways that are widely applicable.I was grateful for this chapter when I spained my ankle on Christmas evening (2nd/3rd degree) while playing in the snow.I followed his advice, and was on my feet three days later.My wife, who has seen numerous injuries professionally, was amazed at my recovery.Thanks to this book, I avoided spoiling the holiday (for us and medical people) by foregoing a trip to the emergency room.He includes any injury you can think of: fractures; muscle tears; older players; after old injuries; unconscious players (he was a rugby player, after all ;-).The "After Old Injuries" part is especially fascinating.He explains and gives examples of athletes who injured themselves years before and how these injuries don't really heal, how they manifest themselves later on and how to treat them.

Ch 7; Overuse Injuries and Conditions: how to manage athletic performance; anxiety and fatigue; the effects of long-term activity; managing performance through high-stress events like tournaments; pain as a signal; warning signs and (of course) remedies for over-exertion.

Ch 8, Local Treatment for Specific Injuries: the foot; the ankle; the leg; the knee; thigh, hip and groin injuries; genital injuries; shoulder injuries; arm, elbow, wrist and hand; back and neck; the cervical spine; head injuries.Again, Thomas, while focusing on specific injuries, gives examples of how to treat the whole person.For example, a leg injury, even though it is the immediate complaint, may be secondary to a wider imbalance in the athlete, so he gives you a broad perspective.However, this chapter is extremely useful and specific.

Ch 9, Treating Common Conditions: a wide range, these "conditions" affect athletes' performance.A selected list: alcohol (hangovers); altitude; anxiety; asthma; athlete's foot; blisters; burns; common cold; confidence (lack of); cramps; diarrhea (food poisoning); flying; hangover; hay fever; headache; ingrown toenail; nerves (pre-preformance); tinea cruris/pedis (jock itch); warts; wounds.

Ch 10, Descriptions of Remedies (Materia Medica): this is notable because the descriptions are all focused on athletics, which enables someone experienced with homeopathy to learn the remedies more completely.

*Advanced Uses of Homeopathy

Ch 11, Susceptibility to Injury: this is illuminating and enlightening.A select list: predisposition to injury covers how a person's constitution predisposes him/her to certain types of injuries; psychological factors; treating the potential for injury; results of injury; treating the whole person.

Ch 12, Enhanced Performance: using remedies to avoid injuries.By definition, athletics and training are about pushing oneself to higher limits.Another way to look at it is trying to find different levels in which one can be in balance.However, training always has the potential to get one off balance.This chapter recognizes the inherent tension in athletics and teaches the reader to use remedies to help maintain balance while challenging oneself.This was illuminating to me in seeing homeopathy in a wider context than treating "illness."Think of it as "proactive homeopathy."

Ch 13, Other Complementary Therapies and Techniques: how to use homeopathy in conjunction with other techniques.A select list: acupuncture/acupressure; osteopathy; chiropractice; Qi Gong; reflexology; Alexander Technique; hypnotherapy.

Appendices: homeopathic suppliers and organizations; homeopathic first aid kit; further reading.There are also remedy and general indices.

In sum, Thomas offers a practical approach to using homeopathy to enhance the well-being of patients, loved ones or yourself.There are too many useful pointers to mention, but here are some highlights:

*Using Arnica in contact sports by putting one tablet in a water bottle.Also useful when the athlete is returning after injury.
*Special focus on dance.
*Several examples of different types and genders of athletes: top performance, middle age, recreational.
*Thomas describes three phases of treatment, with remedies for each phase.
*In-depth diagnostic case shows how to use the Materia Medica's sections methodically to find the right remedy.
*Addresses the emotional and physical aspects of athletic performance and injuries in a practical way.Offers a rich description of what injury means to an athlete, from emotional and physical perspectives.
*Offers homeopathic treatment advice for specific injuries while addressing the whole person. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for NASCAR fan of any age
NASCAR Pop-Up: A Guide to the Sport is illustrated by Doug Chezem and provides over 65 pop-ups and pull tabs and a 12-second sound chip to accompany a vivid history of the race car in general and NASCAR in particular. While unsuitable for a lending library, this is the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for NASCAR fan of any age!

I purchsed this for my neice and she loved it!!! She works for a marketing group where NASCAR is her client.

4-0 out of 5 stars Extremely detailed!
Wonderful pop up book - however, this is not a book for young children.The pop ups themselves are complex and fairly fragile.Additionally,there is a substantial amount of very small written text that require the reader to turn the book in several directions to read each.For Nascar fans this is a wonderful book,as the amount of detail is amazing and offers a wide variety of interesting facts about this sport.

Note from the designer--

I have found that the atmosphere from the tropical printing and assembly plant in China is locked inside the shrink wrap. The month on the ocean and the tropical air hold the moisture inside the paper and the electronics. Once the shrink wrap is removed, the book breathes and the released moisture that is trapped inside the paper and electronics will evaporate and clear all the wiring inside the back cover.

When you open your book, let it "air out" as you read it and the sound chip will activate by removing the tab quickly in the light. One of my copies had to air out for a day before the chip triggered. Once the moist air is released all should be fine. Enjoy the book while you wait for the sound to catch up! ... Read more
