Review


"If there were any doubt about the importance of mental toughness and its effect on performance, this book dispels them thoroughly and convincingly...The range of contexts in which mental toughness can be used is illustrated by the many case studies that are described here, but its value in developing leadership and management effectiveness is the area in which it has particular value. Practicing leaders and managers, especially those currently being developed, will benefit from diagnosis of their mental toughness, and from learning how they can use appropriate strategies to enhance their capability."
 --Peter Cheese, Chair of ILM 

"Mental Toughness has emerged as an important concept which can be used to help individuals understand their own capacity, strengths and weakness and helps coaches, managers and leaders understand the problems individuals and organizations may face when dealing with change. This timely book is very welcome - it describes in a very practical way an idea which appears to have almost unlimited application."--David Eva, unionlearn and Chairman of CWP 

"I have worked with the authors for the past 5 years and have seen at first-hand what difference understanding mental toughness can make in developing a truly high performing organization. This is a timely and valuable addition to the reading list for anyone involved in people management or people development particularly in times of change and challenge."
--Neil Scales, CEO and Director General of Merseytravel 

"Twenty-eight papers explore the study of how effectively individuals respond to stress, pressure, and challenge and consider how mental toughness can improve performance for the individual and the organization." --Journal of Economic Literature 

"This is a fantastic resource for anyone using Mental Toughness coaching and for those who want to deepen their knowledge of the concept and its uses. You will find sound research and very useful case studies, examples of the broad range of practical applications and an insight into why Mental Toughness plays such a key role in empowering both individuals and teams. …A great read." --Aliya Ali-Afzal, Associate Director Executive MBA Careers, Hult International Business School

"I purchased this book as I have been inspired by both Doug and Peter presenting at Resilience At Work conferences in 2010, 2011 and 2012. This book is packed with the essentials and more for understanding mental toughness and developing it. As a Mental Toughness Coach and Trainer, I find this is a valuable, informative reference guide."
