“A how-to manual for not only improving your performance in any endeavor, but more importantly, achieving your potential in life”
NHL Hall of Fame Goaltender
In Life as Sport, sport psychologist Dr. Jonathan Fader shares the skills that he teaches professional athletes–to enhance motivation, set productive goals, sharpen routines, manage stress, and clarify thought processes–and applies them to real-world situations.
Dr. Fader’s book is the product of thousands of hours of conversations with athletes and elite achievers in business and performing arts. It offers a compendium of stories, theories, and techniques that have been helpful to players, coaches and executives in professional sports.
What emerges is more than just a set of techniques, but a life philosophy that anyone can live by: an internal code to help translate our talent and drive toward the highest plateaus of performance.
“This book will help you perform better on and off the court. By applying some of the strategies Fader introduces, you can find greater enjoyment and more success in your life.”
NBA All-Star and Assistant Coach, Miami Heat
“Anybody who applies his methods can reach their peak performance whenever it matters most to them."
Chief Strategy Officer, Cleveland Browns
“Fader focuses on not only performing well but on enjoying life more. I certainly try to live my life as a sport. I think this book can help you do the same.”
