Mental Training for Skydiving and Life
by John Derosalia
Book Description This is a peak performance handbook--for individuals and teams--for skydivers and non-skydivers alike. It’s a "how to" book that teaches practical methods and techniques for designing realistic plans to achieve goals. Best of all it's filled with creative and innovative mental training tools that are simple to use and can be applied immediately. John DeRosalia is a master at motivation and performance enhancement. He’s been training the ‘best of the best’ both in and out of skydiving for over a quarter of a century. The 2 chapters on teamwork alone are invaluable. The chapter Video Games—the Creative use of Visualization and Imagery, is ingenious, extremely effective, and lots of fun. The chapter on Performance Anxiety can make a difference immediately. This book is an exhilarating experience. It can change your life.

Parachuting: The Skydiver's Handbook
by Dan Poynter, Mike Turoff
A free-falling parachuter, strapped onto a snowboard with a Cheshire grin and arms spread wide, graces the book's cover (as does his recently departed airplane, pitched at a rather precarious angle). Don't be misled: only a few pages of The Skydiver's Handbook are dedicated to skysurfing, one of the more radical aspects of parachuting. Instead, Dan Poynter and Mike Turoff's parachuting guide is exhaustive, addressing all levels and styles of skydiving, and providing a glut of like resources. The guide opens with a why-do-this analogy: "If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. If you want to experience the element, get out of the vehicle." Novice skydivers will learn the basics, from tarmac preparation to the first static line jump. And yes, experienced jumpmasters will find enough advanced material to hold their interest: free fall and canopy progression, equipment updates, and emergency procedures. All readers will appreciate the glossary and the lists of skydiving centers, parachute equipment dealers, and literary material. --Rob McDonald -
