Secrets of Asian Sport Psychology is a collection of 22 chapters in which applied practitioners from the Asian-South Pacific region provide accounts of working
with elite athletes in sports at which the country in question excels. So, for example, the text includes accounts of Diving, Gymnastics, and Aerials Skiing in
China, Archery, Speed Skating, and Taekwondo in Korea, Baseball and Judo in Japan, Rowing, Track Cycling, and Triathlon in Australia, Rugby in New Zealand, Wrestling in Iran, and so on, all written by sport psychologists who provided support for the elite teams of those countries. Other chapters, notably Boxing in the Philippines, Golf in Taiwan, and Shooting in India, provide case studies of
the psychological characteristics of some of the world's best performers, based on the athletes' own accounts of their sporting journeys or accounts provided by those close to them.
