I also think the chapters in the book on procedurally-based tasks will be applicable to our nursing students who freeze during their early clinical experiences and our music students, during recitals: inserting an IV line properly or performing on stage is more like making a putt than like answering a question on a test.
The beauty of the book is that it not overly-technical, and so is completely accessible to lay people as well as professionals. I'll be recommending it to students.
It has great research and I could understand the sports analogies but I had a difficult time finding a solution to my problem which is why I purchased the book.
