"This is a useful resource on key issues and insights in sport and performance psychology. As the first volume in the series to examine research and practice related to the psychology of excellent performance, this book is a unique contribution to the field. Domains such as dance, music, theater, business, executive coaching, the military, and education are discussed in the context of psychology of performance excellence. Because of the breadth and depth of its information, this book is most suitable for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in sport and performance psychology." -- DOODY'S

"This book is a unique and significant contribution to the literature in that it represents a
positioning of sport psychology more strongly with performance psychology than health
psychology; it challenges the descriptor of 'sport and exercise psychology' that has held
sway over the last two decades." -- International Journal of Sports Science & Coaching

"Performance psychology, particularly as it pertains to sports, is a relatively new but fast-growing field, and the latest research findings and their practical applications are revealed in this foundational work. This is the first edition of a comprehensive book on this important new science, to be hopefully followed by other editions with updates, as more research is done... This book is a pioneering work in a new field, and its editor and 70 contributors have provided us with information and original research not available anywhere." -- BizIndia

"The Oxford Handbook of Sport and Performance Psychology, edited by Shane Murphy,
represents a breath of fresh air in the field of performance psychology as it incorporates new areas, reexamines old ones, and offers ideas for new directions. By incorporating the words sport and performance psychology into the title, Murphy defines the field by joining forces with the newest proposals (Aoyagi, Portenga, Poczwardowski, Cohen, & Statler, 2012) and echoing the new journal from Division 47 of the American Psychological Association, Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology." -- Gloria Balague, PsycCRITIQUES
