Why do sports captivate people? They allow us to watch human beings achieve peak performance, but, beyond physical strength and skill, what´s really impressive is an athlete´s mental prowess-their will to succeed, engagement with their environment, and self-confidence. In Life as Sport , sport psychologist Dr. Jonathan Fader shares the skills that he teaches professional athletes-to enhance motivation, set productive goals, sharpen routines, manage stress, and clarify thought processes-and applies them to real-world situations. Dr. Fader´s book is the product of thousands of hours of conversations with athletes from various teams and sports: power forwards, tennis phenoms, power-hitting outfielders, and battle-scarred linebackers, as well as hedge-fund managers, entrepreneurs, A-list actors, and dozens of other elite achievers in sports, business, and performing arts. It offers a compendium of stories, theories, and techniques that have been helpful to players, coaches, and executives in professional sports. What emerges is more than just a set of techniques, but a life philosophy that anyone can live by: an internal code to help translate our talent and drive toward the highest plateaus of performance. Dr. Fader designs his strategies to be studied, learned, practiced, and improved. He offers his readers the same exercises that he uses in every session with a professional athlete. These exercises help you to get truly engaged, whether you are designing a new business plan, working to inspire a team or individual, or even falling in love. This is what it means to truly live life as sport-to approach it with the same immediacy, wonder, and engagement that athletes feel at their peak during a game. Life as Sport helps you to pursue your own goals with an enriched intensity-not only because it creates new potential, but also because it helps you unlock what was always there to begin with.

Feinde des Sports (eBook, ePUB)

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Er ist der Enthüller im internationalen Spitzensport: Hajo Seppelt deckt seit Jahren Korruption und Doping auf. Während der Fußball-WM 2018 verweigerte ihm Gastgeber Russland die Einreise. Seppelt hatte dessen systematisches Staatsdoping offengelegt. Erstmals erzählt Seppelt von seinen brisanten Recherchen rund um den Globus. In seinem großen Hintergrundbericht geht es um zwielichtige deutsche Sportärzte, Doping in der britischen Premier League und im europäischen Radsport, Stammzell-Behandlungen in China und um Kenianer, die sich auf lebensgefährliche Behandlungen einlassen. Seppelt schildert die Angriffe seiner Gegner und nimmt den Leser mit zu geheimen Treffen mit Whistleblowern. Hajo Seppelt ist es ernst mit seinem Kampf gegen die Feinde des Sports, das zeigt auch sein Forderungskatalog: Ohne Transparenz, supranationale Kontrollen und Abschaffung von Subventionen wird der Spitzensport seine Glaubwürdigkeit verlieren.

A Moral Theory of Sports (eBook, ePUB)
53,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The breadth of our moral experience is more extensive than has been believed over the past several millennia. There is more to morality than being honest and good, or aspiring to universal principles. In fact, in many ways the morality of our distant ancestors bears a remarkable resemblance to the moral experiences of modern athletes. In A Moral Theory of Sports, ethicist Richard J. Severson brings together stories from today´s sports world and the moral practices of hunter-gatherers to shed new light on both sports and morality. Guided by anthropologists, biologists, neuroscientists, and others, Severson discusses what the moral life actually looked like for hunter-gatherer bands in the late Pleistocene epoch and argues that the championing of group success that was the epitome of their morality is the epitome of modern sports, as well. With fascinating analogies and anecdotes from football, basketball, tennis, cycling, and more, A Moral Theory of Sports offers a unique interpretation of human nature and our love affair with sports.

Mindfulness and Acceptance in Sport (eBook, ePUB)
29,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mindfulness- and acceptance-based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness Acceptance Commitment (MAC) are gaining momentum with sport psychology practitioners who work to support elite athletes. These acceptance-based, or third wave, cognitive behavioral approaches in sport psychology highlight that thought suppression and control techniques can trigger a metacognitive scanning process, and that excessive cognitive activity and task-irrelevant focus (self-focused attention such as trying to change thoughts) disrupts performance. Using this perspective, the aim of sport psychology interventions is not to help the athletes engage in the futile task of managing and controlling internal life. Rather, it suggests that sport psychology practitioners should work to increase athletes´ willingness to accept negative thoughts and emotions in pursuit of valued ends. Key aspects of such interventions include: teaching athletes to open up and accept, teaching athletes to mindfully engage in the present moment, and helping athletes formulate the values and engage in committed actions towards these values. The goal of Mindfulness and Acceptance in Sport: How to Help Athletes Perform and Thrive under Pressure then is to provide students, researchers, practitioners, and coaches of sport psychology with practical guidance for implementing mindfulness and acceptance approaches in their work with athletes. This book brings together highly experienced practitioners and shares their working methods, exercises, and cases to inspire the sport psychology profession.

Corpus Approaches to the Language of Sports (eB...
86,95 € *

Recent decades have seen a fundamental change and transformation in the commercialisation and popularisation of sports and sporting events. Corpus Approaches to the Language of Sports uses corpus resources to offer new perspectives on the language and discourse of this increasingly popular and culturally significant area of research. Bringing together a range of empirical studies from leading scholars, this book bridges the gap between quantitative corpus approaches and more qualitative, multimodal discourse methods. Covering a wide range of sports, including football, cycling and basketball, the linguistic aspects of sports language are analysed across different genres and contexts. Highlighting the importance of studying the language of sports alongside its accompanying audio-visual modes of communication, chapters draw on new digitised collections of language to fully describe and understand the complexities of communication through various channels. In doing so, Corpus Approaches to the Language of Sports not only offers exciting new insights into the language of sports but also extends the scope of corpus linguistics beyond traditional monomodal approaches to put multimodality firmly on the agenda.

Games, Sports, and Play (eBook, ePUB)
32,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume presents new philosophical essays on a topic that´s been neglected in most recent philosophy: games, sports, and play. Some contributions address conceptual questions about what games and sports have in common and that distinguishes them from other activities; here many take their start from Bernard Suits´s celebrated analysis of game-playing in his book The Grasshopper and either elaborate it or propose an alternative to it. Other essays discuss normative issues that arise within games and sports, such as about fairness, for example in the treatment of male and female athletes. Yet others consider broader evaluative questions about the value of games and sports, which some see as enabling the display of distinctive excellences. Games, Sports, and Play includes a posthumous essay by Suits defending his claim, in The Grasshopper, that life in utopia would consist primarily in playing games. The volume´s chapters approach the topic of games, sports, and play from different angles but always in the belief that there is rich terrain here for philosophical investigation.
