The Tao of Sports
By Bob Mitchell. 5.5" x 8.5", 83 pages, paperback. Unlike other sports books, this text offers a refreshing look at the mysteries and challenges of athletic competition. Part philosophy, part poetry, part common sense, The Tao of Sports is a Zen guide, a coaching manual, and an athlete's spiritual roadmap to self-discovery and to understanding the great paradoxes of the Game: defeat and joy, struggle and serenity, anarchy and peace, fear and confidence. Easy to read, but thought provoking.
