Stillpower: Excellence with Ease in Sports and Life Stillpower: Excellence with Ease in Sports and Life

by Garret Kramer

Book Reviews

"Garret Kramer has overturned much of the conventional wisdom about coaching and performance . . . Stillpower is an insightful and profound book."
-- Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"A clear and quiet state of mind isn't just a key element in sports; it's also important in finance, relationships, and life. The principles introduced in this book apply to so much more than athletics."
-- Jean Chatzky, author of the New York Times bestseller Money 911

"In covering sports for more than twenty years, I am always looking for what separates the good athletes from the great ones. Garret Kramer looks outside the box when it comes to athletics . . . Stillpower is a must-read for someone serious about performance, or for the casual fan who wants to learn what really makes athletes tick -- on and off the field."
-- Ian Eagle, CBS Sports/YES Network/Westwood One Radio

"Stillpower is not just one of the best books on improving sports performance ever written -- it is a must-read for coaches and performers in any field of human endeavor. While you work on your game or career, the ideas in this book will go to work on you."
-- Michael Neill, author of Supercoach

"The brilliance of Garret Kramer's perspective is that he takes the often complicated process of achieving one's best performance and turns it into a direct, natural, and positive understanding . . . Stillpower provides the simple, yet powerful message the sports world has been looking for."
-- Sean Hutchison, US Olympic swimming coach

"As I reflect back on my personal quest to develop character through the sport of football, I greatly identify with the wisdom and principles of this book. Stillpower is a profound playbook for the athletic and life journey. Garret Kramer shows us that people become what they think in their heart, not in their head."
-- Tyrone Keys, founder of All Sports Community Services, Super Bowl-winning defensive end -- Chicago Bears

"Garret Kramer understands the importance of having 'your head right.' Stillpower reveals the optimum mental functioning of an athlete and the real source of that functioning. Under this paradigm, individuals involved in sports will enjoy the character-building benefits often promised by participation. Even children will find athletics more enjoyable and, at the same time, achieve high levels of success. I know this may all sound like a tall order, but this book honestly offers that potential."
-- George Pransky, PhD

"I was first introduced to sports psychology in the 1970s when I was playing professional baseball. Like all athletes, I was constantly in search of that magical place called 'the zone,' where the game slows down and pitches are suddenly easy to track. Contrary to what most people think, however, finding your way to 'the zone' doesn't come from grinding or strength of will -- it comes from another source. Stillpower reveals this surprising source. If you're a serious athlete, coach, sports parent -- in fact, anyone -- I strongly suggest you read what Garret Kramer has to say about getting to the top of your game, on and off the field."
-- Rick Wolf, sports psychology expert and host of THE SPORTS EDGE, WFAN Radio, New York

"I first heard Garret Kramer speak in 2009, and I was instantly intrigued by his message and approach to athletic mental performance. Stillpower takes a unique perspective that will challenge your traditional beliefs. If you keep an open mind and really listen to what this book has to say, you will realize how much easier and more positive life can be, and why the notion of 'no pain, no gain' will never help in your pursuit of success."
-- Rob Naddelman, president of Baseball Factory

"The message introduced in this book is the reverse of any mental strategy or technique that I have ever tried. Stillpower has shown me that my thoughts and moods create my perceptions. So, instead of being victimized by my circumstances, I determine my own performance level -- no matter what is happening outside of me. As a result of understanding the principles of thought and consciousness, I now find myself in 'the zone' way more often. Thanks to Garret Kramer I just had the best year of my professional career."
-- Colin Wilson, Nashville Predators forward
