Summary:

An unsolicited review from the forums:

This is a book based on "The Inner Game of Tennis" by Tim Galway. The author, Barry Green, a bassist, read "The Inner game Of Tennis" and contacted Mr. Galway about co-writing a version tailored for musicians. It deals with the noise and interference in our minds that disrupt our ability to perform at our best.

At first I found the book inspiring, especially the formula "P=(p-i)" (Performance = potential-interference) If we can remove, limit or manage interference, we will perform better. However, with all the great information and ideas in the book, I've had to force myself to finish it. I really felt the entire book could have been condensed to about 30 pages...but then again I've never been much of a reader. I may give "The Inner Game of Tennis" a read too:)

Description (book jacket or other publisher notes):

By the best-selling co-author of Inner Tennis, here's a book designed to help musicians overcome obstacles, help improve concentration, and reduce nervousness, allowing them to reach new levels of performing excellence and musical artistry.
