This book is spiritual in nature. It deserves a high score, for one, it promotes many motivations and values that are deemed effective according to modern psychological dissertations. One goal setting method that the author mentions especially captures my mind - before a match or a tournament, the soccer player would lie down in the locker room imagineer his purpose from recalling his childhood experiences kicking soccer balls by the beach. He's not only recalling the event, he's recalling the smell, the humidity, the emotion, the very reason why he's doing what he loves doing. When he positions himself in that state, he's invincible. To win is to win with the mind. This book is a very powerful book on the subject.
