It’s not often that I find a book on performance that has incredible re-readability. It’s even rarer when the author of that book is someone I know personally.
That’s why I wanted to let you all know about a The High Performance Athlete, written by Dr. Jason Winkle. Dr. Winkle and I met a few years back when I was working with Indiana State Football, and I have a lot of respect for who he is and what he does. So I was very excited when I read this book and got so much out of it.
The best thing about it in my opinion, is that while the book is geared toward athletes and coaches, the principles of high-performance that he stresses in the book can be applied to anyone trying to get better.
Dr. Winkle worked as the Associate Dean at the College of Nursing, Health, & Human Services at Indiana State for much of my time there, and he was occasionally invited to work with and speak to the football team at Indiana State. He is a tremendous public speaker, and I highly recommend him if you’re looking for someone to speak to your team. You can find more information here. » Read more
