"Jeffrey Martin is widely recognized as the leading scholar on disability sport and exercise psychology, and that expertise comes through in this Handbook. In compiling this volume, Dr. Martin demonstrates the grit of a marathon runner with his attention to detail, persistence and resilience, as well as his thoughtful reflection. Many handbooks summarize research, but unlike many sport and exercise psychology works, this handbook delves deeper into the issues. This book not only provides a wealth of information, but much food for thought."
-- Diane L. Gill, Professor, Department of Kinesiology, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
"A decade in the making, the Handbook of Disability Sport and Exercise Psychology is a tour-de-force, serving as the first major work on the subject. At once authoritative and comprehensive, the Handbook has the breadth and depth more typical of an edited volume, but with the steady, unifying voice of a single author. With coverage of topics ranging from philosophy of science to psychological intervention across the sport and exercise domains, a project of this scope was a Herculean undertaking. Jeffrey Martin was clearly up to the task, crafting an invaluable resource for scholars and practitioners alike."
-- Britton W. Brewer, Professor, Department of Psychology, Springfield College
"Martin's incisive critique of disability scholarship, comprehensive overview of disability sport and exercise psychology knowledge, and thoughtful presentation of next research opportunities makes his text an instant classic. An accessible and complete volume, the Handbook of Disability Sport and Exercise Psychology will be regarded as the defining resource that catalyzes the next wave of advances on this important topic."
-- Alan L. Smith, Professor and Chairperson, Department of Kinesiology, Michigan State University
"Jeffrey Martin, a preeminent scholar, in the psychology of disability in sport and exercise, presents the first truly comprehensive textbook addressing the current literature on this topic. This text represent a pinnacle in Dr. Martin's contributions to his discipline that will likely catapult the field and ignite new ideas from investigators and practitioners. This text's unique contribution to the literature is most apparent when considering phenomenological differences between able-bodied versus disabled, movement-associated identity, and considerations for performance enhancement. Not surprisingly, these contributions broaden our knowledge of the human movement experience for both able-bodied and disabled."
-- Edmund Acevedo, Professor and Chair, Department of Kinesiology, Virginia Commonwealth University
