    Psychology in Sport aims to bring sport psychology closer to the heart of mainstream psychology. John Kremer and Deirdre Scully take a new and refreshing look at the most recent sport psychology literature, presenting this information in a way which will be immediately recognisable to students of psychology. Written in a clear and engrossing style, this new approach to Psychology in sport will be of immediate relevance to courses on introductory, applied and sport psychology, as well as providing a valuable reference source for general psychological material pertaining to sport and exercise.
