I saw a book at the BCA tournament in Vegas this year concerning mental aspects of pool. But I did not get the title or author. I can tell you what the book was like..it concerned attitudes of olympians, among others, toward competition. The book was described as helping Alex Pagalayan(sp?).
The book was kind of like a mixture of:
The inner game of tennis (Galwey),
a mind for pool or
Pleasures of small motions (Fancher)
BUT UNFORTUNATELY I CANT RECALL THE TITLE.
The book was a new book (written in the last 3-5 yrs)
Thanks for your help
Sorry to be so vague
