Leading sports psychologist Jim Afremow, author of the successful debut, The Champion's Mind, knows what makes good athletes great. Especially When they come back to win after facing devastating injuries, tough obstacles, or seemingly insurmountable odds. Now, in The Champion's Comeback, he offers winning strategies for athletes of any skill level or age to get mentally psyched for competition, quickly rebound after a loss, and overcome injuries (and the fear of re-injury). In clear, engaging language, Afremow explores the psychology of commitment and shows readers how to develop the core confidence of repeat champions. Featuring unique tips and advice, including guided imagery scripts, easy-to-follow mental training exercises, and motivating stories of famous "comeback" athletes, The Champion's Comeback is the ultimate athlete's handbook, encouraging readers not only to stay in the game, but to achieve greatness, no matter what.
