Here he provides a succinct but comprehensive account of major theory and research in sport psychology, whilst maintaining the readable style and student-centred approach which made the previous book so successful.§Key issues covered include:§§Personality and sport §Attitudes to sport§Aggression§Social factors affecting performance §Arousal and anxiety §Motivation and skill acquisition.§There is an emphasis not merely on learning about sport psychology, but also on developing critical and creative thinking.
