'Mental toughness is an idea whose time has come. Solidly anchored in scientific research, the book presents an overview of what mental toughness is, how to measure it, and factors leading to its development. Written in an engaging style, it is accessible to scholars and students alike.' -- Robert J. Vallerand, Universite du Quebec a Montreal 'This is a welcome contribution to the sport psychology literature, focusing on a topic which applied sport psychologists deal with constantly but which has rarely received specific attention in this way. This book will go a long way towards helping to correct this situation, and is written in a very accessible, no-nonsense style that I find very appealing.' -- John Kremer, School of Psychology, Queen's University, Belfast
