This is by far THE BEST book I have read on the subject. I\'ve been really inspired from it. I\'ve read it only once but I\'m quite sure that a full comprehension needs more work! It\'s amazing how much stuff is involved in being competitive in IPSC which I didn\'t even considered until I read...

A great read which covers a vital aspect which is often overlooked - the "mental game". Written in simple, clear language, this is an essential addition to any IPSC shooter's library.

After having read this book, I finally realised how complex IPSC really is. Saul's book really give's the shooter a chance to structure their approach to the sport. If your starting out in the sport, or even been competiting for a while, this book is a must. After having read it you will come...

This book is a perfect complement to Brian Enos masterpiece "Practical shooting - beyond fundamentals" (or vice versa). While BE writes about "shooting" this book covers the other aspects of IPSC.

I have to say that out of all coaching books, this is one I always go back to. The section about mental preparation there is written in a way as if Saul himself was there next to you, coaching you. It is rare to find someone from our sport writing in such details about everything that goes...

If your starting out in the sport, or even been competiting for a while, this book is a must. After having read it you will come away with a far better understanding of how to prepare, how to compete and how to win. It is by far the best book I have read so far on how to actually deal with the challenges that the sport throws at you.

It is rare to find someone from our sport writing in such details about everything that goes through a competitor's mind while competing, and this one has surely helped me "survive" some major matches. Thank you Saul!
