Dr. Jim Loehr is a world-renowned performance psychologist, Co-Founder of the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute, and author of 16 books including his most recent, The Only Way to Win. He also co-authored the national bestseller The Power of Full Engagement.
"Drawing upon 16 years of research and clinical experience, noted sports psychologist Loehr presents a comprehensive training program to convert stress into emotional, mental, and physical toughness. Such toughness is needed to achieve maximum productivity, health, and happiness in life, he claims. According to Loehr, the model in this program is a 'quantum leap' beyond that detailed in his previous work, Mental Toughness Training for Sports. Here, he adapts and expands his former model to treat topics such as toughness training for kids, women, the military, and recovering from rough times. Particularly interesting are chapters on the chemistry of toughness and strengthening the immune system. Aided by numerous charts, case studies, exercises, and a glossary, Loehr combines research with readable prose to provide superior stress management advice."--Library Journal
