BACK TO LISTING The Greatest: The Quest for Sporting Perfection

How do we become the best that we can be, as individuals, as teams and as organisations?

Sport with its innate sense of competition, its psychological pressure, its complex moral codes, its endless drive to innovate and its illusive quest for perfection, provides us with many interesting answers.

In this wide-ranging and provocative book, Matthew Syed, the award-winning Times columnist and bestselling author, explores the mental game of sport. Covering topics such as loyalty, risk, motivation and fear, probing difficult subjects including corruption, race and hooliganism, and with insights into the mindset of some of the most talented sportspeople – from Billie Jean King to Cristiano Ronaldo to the greatest of them all, Muhammad Ali – The Greatest uncovers what it takes to reach the very top.
