內容簡介


2016年度體育記者馬修‧施雅德全新作品,探討心理層面如何影響人們成為偉大的運動員

如果讓費德勒教導我們關於長壽,我們可以學到什麼?黑人和即興爵士樂家之間的共同點為何?從認知神經科學家的眼中,我們能從運動選手的表現中發現什麼事實?為什麼荷蘭球王克魯伊夫認為美感比贏球更重要?暢銷書《一萬小時的神奇威力》作者馬修‧施雅德將在本書回答以上的問題,以風趣及爭議的議題,探討心理因素如何影響運動員的表現。在個人、團隊或是組織中,我們該如何成為頂尖人物?在激烈的運動比賽過程中,充滿先天的戲劇性、競爭優勢、心理壓力、道德感及追求虛幻的完美表現,這些層面的因素都充分影響人們的表現。作者將透過遺傳學、心理學、經濟學及社會文化和運動學的觀點,分析人類的競爭天性與勝負關鍵因素,以及該如何面對人生的賽局。

What can Roger Federer teach us about the secret of longevity?
What do the All Blacks have in common with improvised jazz musicians?
What can cognitive neuroscientists tell us about what happens to the brains of sportspeople when they perform?
And why did Johan Cruyff believe that beauty was more important than winning?


Matthew Syed, the 'Sports Journalist of the Year 2016', answers these questions and more in a fascinating, wide-ranging and provocative book about the mental game of sport.

How do we become the best that we can be, as individuals, teams and as organisations? Sport, with its innate sense of drama, its competitive edge, its psychological pressures, its sense of morality and its illusive quest for perfection, provides the answers.
