Description - Winning by Stuart H. Walker
Addressing the competitor-whether in sailing, tennis, golf, baseball, or other sport-Stuart H. Walker demonstrates that what competition means to the competitor is the main determinant of success and failure, and that what it means to you can be turned to your advantage. Dr. Walker writes, "Competence leads to courage, creativity, and fun. Lack of understanding and lack of control lead to fear, depressions, and incompetence-and no fun. Competition is too good to waste." For the paperback edition, Dr. Walker has written a new chapter, "Cheating," in which he discusses why cheating seems to be on the increase, what it signifies, and what should be done about it.
