Reviews

"Firmly grounded in theory, this book provides a stellar analysis of the influential role of perceived self-efficacy in athletic development and functioning.  It is uniquely broad in scope, offering a masterful overview of the foundation, research, and application of self-efficacy theory in the field of athletics.  Because of the scope and depth of coverage, this book is an invaluable resource for theorists and practitioners alike seeking an understanding of how beliefs of personal and collective efficacy contribute to the quality of athletic life.  But it is about more than sports.  The insights it provides can also serve one well in other life pursuits.  This is a truly outstanding book that has the makings of a classic in the field of athletics."

-Albert Bandura
