by Dr Mark S Elliott
What’s mentally demanding about your sport?
Is it – waiting for kick-off? Making mistakes? Taking a penalty kick in a big match? Receiving a poor decision from the referee? Being close to victory/defeat? Performing in front of the national coach?
For years, athletes have been told that these types of external events and scenarios are why playing sport competitively is mentally challenging. They have been brought up to believe that the sources of their anxieties, distractions and frustrations lie within their sport. However, according to leading sport psychologist, Dr Mark Elliott, this is deceptive and wrong.
In Facing Frankenstein you’ll realise why it’s wrong. You’ll discover the TRUTH about why you need to be mentally tough and be shocked to learn that it’s got nothing to do with sport itself. Instead, you’ll find out that you’ve created a mental monster that is more cunning, clever and capable than any of your physical opponents. It is your true opponent in sport and you must defeat it! Crucially, the book provides you with the means to do so through its groundbreaking mental training system, The Six Pathways to Mental Toughness programme.

"This book is great. Not like most other psychology books that just give you tips and tricks. This book gives you exercise and training to give you a strong mind, it doesn't just tell about what a strong mind in sport is but it gives you the tools to attain it. Fantastic. I recommend to anyone wanting to improve at their sport."
"This is a fascinating sports psychology book which works on many levels. Not only does it provide insightful anecdotes into the mental machinations of some world class athletes, but it also provides the reader with the tools and a methodology by which they can develop their own mental toughness. It's a must for any sportsperson looking to develop the edge over their competition, or for even the casual reader with an interest in the area."
