Product reviews for Release Your Inner Drive

Dr Martin J. Turner, Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology, Staffordshire University.
Release Your Inner Drive very skilfully applies well-grounded, contemporary psychological concepts to an array of achievement situations. The infographics communicate complex theory in a really digestible way, designed to help readers make sense of the mental aspects of performance, and apply thinking skills within their particular domain. As an academic and practitioner, I think the inclusion of research and references is really important and I particularly appreciated this aspect of the book. Many of the graphics are eye-catching, but also accurate, helping people to remember what they read, which helps them apply what they read to their world. The graphical way in which the content is presented allows the reader to easily understand the tools being introduced, and the theory behind the tools. Information is chunked in such a way that the reader is able to take away key pieces of information easily. The advice is not only useful for people wishing to fulfil their potential, it is also important for well-being. Indeed, many of the concepts are as much about maintaining and enhancing well-being as they are about achievement. My favourite part was Chapter 10, where growth mindset is really clearly applied. I also like the fact that the reader is given options as to how to use the book, prior to and after reading it.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in fulfilling their potential or inquisitive about how they can harness psychology to improve their performance.
