"In my 30+ years in cycling I have had many opportunities to see extremely physically talented athletes fail to live up to their potential because they were never able to balance their physical talent with the mental side of sport. During that same time I have seen good athletes have championship winning performances due in part to their mental strength. Now more than ever, with so much information available to everyone instantaneously, many athletes tend to look everywhere except to themselves for improvement.

Carrie Cheadle's "On Top Of Your Game" is a fantastic resource for every level of athlete from weekend warrior to World Champion who is looking to strengthen their mental game and thus improve performance by looking within. With an easy to read format, "Take-Aways" & "Tools" at the end of each chapter and the "...there is no right or wrong way" approach, Cheadle definitely has a winning book on her hands. Drawing on personal experience as well as the experiences of the many athletes she has worked with, a nice balance of real life and textbook examples is achieved to make easy understanding for everyone."

"I started this book while going through an injury and when the first few pages opened up with a personal story by Carrie of overcoming an injury herself, I knew I was going to benefit from reading the rest The way she uses her own journey as an athlete, and combines that with her extensive studies in sport psychology, makes this book a 'must have' for any level of athlete. We just don't give enough credit to the power of the mind. Don't be lazy Read this wonderfully written piece of work and start the process now."
