In this title, psychologist and public speaker Mumford wants people to be their truest of selves and achieve greatness, no matter their circumstances in life. Mumford uses his experience working with an array of individuals from different backgrounds, including basketball superstars, to exemplify how they achieved greatness and unleashed their potential with the help of his techniques. The author encourages letting go of mistakes and accepting things the way they are. This approach opens the way for embracing changes to habits and makes it possible to reach what the author calls “pure performance.” Readers looking for new paths to inner growth and mindfulness as well as basketball fans who want to know more about how players like Kobe Bryant reached such great performance goals will find something useful in this book. Those who enjoyed Mumford’s previous work, The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Purse Performance, will find this to be a continuation of his story of helping others. Throughout this title, Mumford also discusses some of the books he has incorporated into his teachings.
VERDICT This book is a great addition to any library’s nonfiction collection, especially for sports fans.
