Book Description

July 1 1999
Sports today seems all to often to be poisoned by greed, incivility, and violence. Part philosophy, part poetry, part common sense, The Tao Of Sports is a spiritual roadmap to self-discovery and to understanding the great paradoxes of sports, athletics, and the Game: defeat and joy, struggle and serenity, anarchy and peace, fear and confidence. Witty, passionate, and thoughtful, The Tao Of Sports is a Zen guide, a coaching manual, an athlete's playbook, and a very engaging, informative reading for any fan who ever rooted for a player or a team.

Review

If Lao-tzu, who wrote the original Tao, had seen DiMaggio and Griffey, Wilt and Michael, Jim Brown and Joe Montana, he might have been moved to compose a sports version of his classic. Bob Mitchell has seen them and has done it. The Tao of Sports will improve your game--and your mind.
-Dick Schaap, sportscaster, ABC/ESPN

Sports is the defining metaphor of our time. In The Tao of Sports Bob Mitchell shows with intense clarity and humor how sports can be a doorway for spiritual awareness and transformation.
-Dean Ornish, M.D., author of Eat More, Weigh Less --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
