Performing Under Pressure is an essential resource on improving sporting performance in high-pressure situations. Perry's work guides coaches and athletes through nine key elements of the sporting mindset to help athletes to perform at the highest standards, even under the most pressurized of situations.

This valuable read includes empirically-based advice on areas such as embracing competition; building confidence, concentration and focus; maintaining emotional control; learning from and coping with failure or injury; being braver; and being able to push harder. Perry also provides 64 strategies to support each sporting mindset, offering not just the evidence as to why they work but exactly how to implement them.

This book uniquely offers those supporting athletes a toolkit of sport psychology strategies and interventions in a way that is evidence-based, accessible and engaging, whether you are starting out studying sport psychology, on a sports science course, or are a coach of many years' standing, for both elite and amateur athletes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Performing Under Pressure: Psychological Strategies for Sporting Success by Josephine Perry strikes a great balance between reviewing relevant scientific evidence and presenting easy to follow practical tips for how to perform more effectively under pressure. As such, the book provides a great overview of core psychological factors both influencing and determining performance under pressure, and also presents good evidence-based interventions. I would recommend this book to both students wishing to understand more about sport psychology and athletes seeking to both understand and enhance their own mental performance.' - Stewart Cotterill, Head of School, School of Psychology, Sport and Physical Activity; Professor of Sport and Performance Psychology; AECC University College

'There's lots of chatter these days about the mind's power to push you onward or hold you back athletically. In Performing Under Pressure, Josephine Perry goes beyond the cliches to explore which mental factors matter most - and, crucially, provides us with a comprehensive and evidence-based toolkit to build our psychological strengths and shore up our weaknesses. Perry's well-organised and highly readable approach will help athletes, coaches, and students put the theories of sports psychology into practice when in matters most: in the heat of competition.' - Alex Hutchinson, author of Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance
