I guarantee this book can help everyone in some shape or form.

Anthony Watson, England Rugby International

One area people don't invest enough time in these days is the mental side... Don gives you the tools to go away and use, to ensure you're training your brain... The tools he has given me have helped me massively as a player on the field.

George Ford, England Rugby International

I found Don's work truly beneficial and his knowledge of the pro sportsperson's mind impressive... Don has the ability to understand and navigate what can be a minefield of distractions and issues.

Pat Cash, 1987 Wimbledon Champion

I am now calmer, cooler... In taming my monkey mind, Don has brought me to heights that I didn't think I would ever reach, not only in tennis but in life.

Coco Vanderweghe, US Grand Slam Doubles winner and twice Grand Slam Singles semi-finalist

Don's practices of achieving mental clarity have stayed with me every time that I have stepped into a race car for the past five years, as well as on a daily basis in my normal life. I can truly say that I wouldn't be where I am today without his help.

Alexander Rossi, American IndyCar Racer and winner of the Indy 500

My sessions on meditation, breathing, visualization, are still clearly in my mind and these are my assets even now. I believe these techniques are useful not only in extreme conditions but also on a daily basis... I hope this book will find many people who need help!

Kazuki Nakajima, Formula One Driver and three-time 24-Hours of Le Mans winner

Quite simply, Don knows what works and what doesn't, so you can trust his advice, just as some of the world's most successful athletes have.

Dr Kerry Spackman, Cognitive Neuroscientist

Don gave me Tools and helped me to enjoy life more and to be a better person.

Mike Ford, Leicester Tigers coach and former England and Ireland Rugby Union coach
