Written by an international team of expert contributors, this unique global and authoritative survey explores in full but accessible detail the basic constructs and concepts of modern sport and exercise psychology and their practical application.

The book consists of 62 chapters, written by 144 contributors, deriving from 24 countries across the world. The chapters are arranged in nine cohesive sections: sport and exercise participants; the influence of environments on sport and exercise; motor skills; performance enhancement; building and leading teams; career, life skills and character development; health and well-being enhancement; clinical issues in sport psychology; and professional development and practice. Each chapter contains chapter summaries and objectives, learning aids, questions, exercises and references for further reading.

Its comprehensive scale and global reach make this volume an essential companion for students, instructors and researchers in sport science, sport and exercise psychology, psychology, and physical education. It will also prove invaluable for coaches and health education practitioners.

Each chapter is written in an accessible style appropriate for undergraduates, while also providing the most current research findings in the content area... the depth and breadth of information provided make the book a must-have for those teaching those courses... Summing up: Highly Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers." - L.J. Burton, University of Connecticut, in CHOICE, October 2014

"This extensive collection of articles represents perhaps the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the sport and exercise literature available, with chapters addressing everything from the physiology of motor behavior, to performance enhancement, to motivational interventions with athletes. Moreover, this is the most truly international presentation of the field available, giving voice to perspectives from around the globe, and from top scholars in multiple disciplines. Whether one's interest is in the basic science or applied practice of sport and exercise psychology, this is an essential volume." - Richard M. Ryan, Department of Clinical & Social Sciences in Psychology, University of Rochester, USA
