This was an excellent "outside the box" recommendation.
This book has 111 user reviews on Amazon.
I'm only editorializing because it's not a bowling book per se, but this one belongs on every serious competitors book shelf no matter what sports they play.

On July 3 2012, A forum member wrote: How about having a section in the Wiki for books? Could we have them rated too by those of us who read them?

A template was created wherein members of the forum could rate instructional material. The idea was to create a somewhat dynamic list of our members ratings. The Bowling Bookstore is an Internet Vendor of Bowling Instructional media and other bowling related material" onclick=";return false;

Creation of these rating polls is an ongoing process, e.g. Search for 123xyz which was embedded as a potential unique string This will return all polls created with this string.

Search Key: 123xyz Use the above search key to pull all polls used with this template.

If you've read, watched, or listened to, please take the time to rate it via the poll.

The Inner Game of Tennis: The Classic Guide to the Mental Side of Peak Performance
by W. Timothy Gallwey, Zach Kleiman and Pete Carroll (May 27, 1997)

Editorialize if you'd like to complement your rating

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em

Thanks for adding this book to the library for review. The current state of bowling or "modern bowling" has made a lot of the instructional information obsolete. It is unfortunate because the dwindling popularity has reduced the likelihood of new books in the future. Thankfully, Mark Baker has put his vast knowledge into book form for today's game. What sets Gallwey's book apart is it works no matter how much the physical game changes. The mental side of sports may eventually change, but for now, no other book performs as well as "The Inner Game of Tennis" for developing the mental aspect of competition.
