    Title: Applied Motor Learning in Physical Education & Sports
    By (author): Jin Wang PhD, Shihui Chen Ph.D.
    ISBN10-13: 1935412523 : 9781935412526
    The importance of the study of the scientific principles of learning human motor skills is evident in that motor learning is a required core course as set forth by the NASPE standards. Applied Motor Learning in Physical Education and Sports goes further than simply providing valuable scientific theories. Authors Jin Wang and Shihui Chen transform those theories into practice in an understandable approach by incorporating case studies and practitioners' implications, making this a comprehensive authority on the topic of motor learning. Written for undergraduate students, PE teachers, coaches, athletes and practitioners, each chapter includes: an introduction to the imperative theoretical models of motor learning, case studies and life examples that illustrate theoretical concepts that can be effectively applied to practical teaching, coaching, or motor learning settings, project topics that integrate theory with practice, clear illustrations, diagrams, and key components of concepts depicting the main ideas.

    “Applied Motor Learning in Physical Education and Sports provides valuable information about integrating sport science principles to practice for teaching and learning motor skills. I believe that physical educators, coaches and practitioners can largely benefit from this applied book that is rarely found in the market. I highly recommend this book to any professionals who learn or teach motor skills. You will find this book informative and valuable with an easy-to-understand approach to effectively illustrate motor learning concepts. As my consultant, Dr. Wang’s approaches, I find, are very effective and useful in motor skill training.” –Anson Dorrance, Head Women’s Varsity Soccer Coach at the University of North Carolina, 22-Time National Champions; former U.S. Women’s National Soccer Coach (1986-1994), 1991 Women’s World Champions
    “Dr. Wang provided effective psychological and technical consultations to me and helped me eliminate competitive anxiety and keep concentrated for achieving the Olympic gold medal at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Italy. I am truly thankful for Dr. Wang’s consultations. Dr. Wang’s new applied motor learning book will help coaches and athletes understand the important scientific principles related to sport skill training.” – Han Xiao Peng, Chinese Free-Style Skiing Aero-Jump Olympic Athlete who won the Olympic gold medal at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Italy
    “This is the book coaches and PE teachers have been waiting for. Dr. Wang, a former elite soccer player and coach, and Dr. Chen show coaches how to take motor learning principles and integrate them into their practice sessions. In their treatment of skill learning, the authors not only show coaches how to break motor skills down into their component parts but they also demonstrate how to enhance learning by taking skills from practice sessions and putting them into actual competition. Applied Motor Learning is a welcomed addition to the motor learning literature because of its theoretical and practical orientations. It is a new approach to the study of one of the most important aspects of teaching/coaching.” – William F. Straub, PhD, FACSM, Certified Sport Psychology Consultant for Association of Applied Sport Psychology Former professor, dean, and professional athlete and coach
    “The information compiled by Dr. Wang and Dr. Chen is extremely valuable. As a physical educator, I especially enjoyed the concepts of the application of practice in various settings and how that can be transferred to the game or competition setting. Applied Motor Learning is easy to follow and enjoyable to read. I highly recommend this for those looking to maximize the efficiency of practice to game transfer.” – R. David Worrall, Elementary Physical Educator, Former GAHPERD State President, and former GAHPERD Elementary Physical Education Teacher of the Year.

    Title: Assessment in Sport Psychology
    By (author): Robert M Nideffer, Marc-Simon Sagal
    ISBN10-13: 1885693281 : 9781885693280
    Will the athlete you're working with put it all together when everything is on the line? What can you do to make sure an athlete performs best when it really counts? Are certain conditions more likely to lead to success (or failure) for her? Will he be able and willing to make the changes required to be more successful? In today's highly competitive environment the answers to these questions often spell the difference between success and failure not only for individuals but also for entire teams and organisations. At the upper levels of performance in situations where competing individuals and teams have all the technical skill and tactical knowledge required to be successful psychological factors become the most important determinants of outcome. The ability to control emotions to communicate effectively and to perform under pressure is what separates winners from losers. Sport psychologists are beginning to uncover the links between thought processes and physiology; as a result today's testing tools have much greater utility and relevance than ever before. Today more than ever before sport psychology professionals must have the skills necessary to bridge the worlds of science and application.

    Title: Case Studies in Sport Diplomacy
    By (author): Craig Esherick, Robert Baker, Steven Jackson, Michael Sam
    ISBN10-13: 1940067057 : 9781940067056
    The growing influence of sport has created a unique opportunity to build international relationships for a number of purposes, including cultural, economic, shared humanitarian, and increasingly, political diplomacy. This book explores the influence and effectiveness of sport diplomacy in improving long-term relations between nations by opening a dialogue with international leaders, raising awareness of host countries and to bridging cultural differences, and in building international relationships through ambassadors that could increase trade and legislative agreements, and even bring peace to nations in conflict. Authored by talented scholars from all over the world, many of whom served as sport diplomats, their unique perspective in each case sheds light on the ways in which sport diplomacy can succeed or falter in achieving strategic objectives between influential -- and in some cases historically adversarial -- countries. A thoroughly intriguing look at sport diplomacy’s past and ongoing efforts to improve relations with countries such as Brazil, Russia, Iran and China, this book brings to the forefront an area in which sport has been able to open up and increase opportunities to build relationships between people, communities, governments and countries.
