Praise for The Competitive Edge
"We were impressed by this book when it first came out in 1984. Never before had such a combination of credentials been brought to bear on the subject: the mental side of distance running.
Rich Elliott had been a national-class distance runner, was a successful coach, had made a comprehenseive study of the psychology of sport, and—wonder of wonders—he could write with clarity, intelligence, and imagination."
