The idea that elite athletes possess some kind of sporting intelligence is not a new idea, but the research around it has been quite scattered and piecemeal. It was time for a coherent theory of sports intelligence – which is what Garrath Rosslee tackled for his Psychology doctorate – and which he’s turned into an accessible book for athletes at all levels.
The best news about sports intelligence is that you don’t have to be born with it – you can learn it – and this book explains exactly what sports intelligence is, and how it can work for you. It both explains the theory, and gives you pointers on how to put it into practice.
So, whether you play a sport at club level and want to move yourself into the next league, or are a professional player who wants to compete internationally, this book is for you – it will give you an approach to boosting your performance, and help to take you to the next level.
