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 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.

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.
