REVIEW: (see more below)
"This book will be a very useful addition to the tool kit of any coach or performer." Greg Chappell, MBE, former Australian Test Cricket Captain.

Many sports people will say their best performance was the easiest. Why is this? Why should a peak performance feel so much easier than an average one? They were in The Zone! This book contains both theoretical and practical steps that will help you achieve a peak performance more often. The simple, easy-to-follow techniques will show you how to get into The Zone and achieve more - with less effort.

Underpinning all your actions are habits. Due to their nature, they remain concealed; slowly, they can corrupt your performance, and worse still, your movement - and you won't even notice. Remarkably, we trust these habits entirely and resist any efforts to change them. And you will - just wait until you try some of the experiments in this book! Yet, if we can discard these habits and the ideas that go with them, the results can be amazing.

If you want to take your sport to a higher level, you will have to venture into the unknown. The involves going to new places you don't yet know. Keep in mind that you cannot achieve what you don't yet know, purely by doing what you do know.

"In this terrific book Roy Palmer succeeds where many have failed: namely to talk about 'the zone' coherently, elegantly and best of all practically." Malcom Balk, author of Master The Art of Running

"I've finished reading your Peak Performance book and it is truly great, I will definitely recommend it to my running club mates in Australia." Clayton Percy, athlete, Australia.

"Your techniques have enabled me to use my neuro-musculo-skeletal system more efficiently. I have fewer overuse injuries and my recovery times after hard training sessions or competitions are shorter." Jo Bowyer, Sports Osteopath, England and GB Fencer

"I found your program very useful. Your explanation is clear and insightful. I've learnt how to focus 'in the moment' and not on the end-results too much. I've learnt to 'let go' some unnecessary extra tensions that normally comes with competitions." Hwai Tah, squash player, Malaysia.

"This has brought about huge improvements particularly when swimming over longer distances. I am able to swim distances at a constant pace by maintaining my feel for the water rather than gritting my teeth, fighting the water and seeing my times drop off. This improves the quality of my training and most important of all, training is a lot more fun." Jonathan Mooney, Swimmer, United Kingdom
