Bud Winter’s “Relax and Win” is finally here! His original 1981 classic has been updated with several new chapters, interviewed by yours truly. Why pay $330 for a rare book on eBay? Click here if you don’t believe me!
The first half of the book was based on mental and physical training methods used to prepare flyers for combat in World War II… techniques that were once locked under the heading “classified information”. This book offers a step-by-step full 6 lesson relaxation course with great results.
You will learn the single word he uses to program your mind to get ready for any stressful situations, not just Track. Bud Winter starts off with real life stories from the controversial 1968 Olympics and the “Black Panther/Black Power” movement. Imagine the pressure Lee Evans had after the Tommie Smith and John Carlos demonstration?
In addition, he interviewed several world class coaches and athletes from all sports, such as John Wooden, Dick Vermeil, Bill Walsh and Mark Spitz.
I interviewed Frank Dick at the Global Coaches House (while at the London 2012 Olympics) for insights on figure skater Katarina Witt, decathlete Daley Thompson and tennis star Boris Becker.
At 316 pages, this book is regularly priced at $34.95, but it is on sale for $29.95 (plus shipping) until Dec 31, 2012.
Orders will begin shipping Monday December 10, 2012.
Continental USA orders must be received before Wednesday, December 12 to ensure delivery before Christmas with USPS Priority Mail.
Highly recommended, but then again, I am biased
