This book helped me, as a guy with a low frustration tolerance threshold, to deal with the bad stretches in a round. It's mostly about accepting that you control your thought process and not the other way around, but you have to work at it just like your form. Most people don't have that mental discipline naturally, just like most people can't pick up a Tbird for the first time and launch it 300 ft.
This book helped me tremendously with my confidence, especially the "aim small, miss small" ideology.
