Sobre o livro
What goes through an athlete's head when their life's work is at stake? What separates those who can stay at the top from those who can't? How do daredevils suppress the fear of death? What exactly is that near-mystical state known as 'the zone'? Drawing on over a hundred interviews with elite athletes from sports ranging from F1 to swimming, base jumping and cycling, 'The Zone' investigates the mental processes by which champions are made. Interview contributors include: Usain Bolt, Sebastian Coe, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Greg Rutherford, Christ Hoy, Victoria Pendleton, Lewis Hamilton, Damon Hill, Novak Djokovic and more.
