Summary of Choke
The Secret to Performing Under Pressure
Why do some people choke under pressure? Learn how to stay cool under fire.
Psychology professor Sian Beilock answers many compelling questions, among them: Why do people choke, and what can you do to avoid choking under pressure? Beilock points out steps you can follow to hold up better in a pinch. Some are small and easy, others more complex and systemic. Though the author makes the same points – or the same sort of points, in different ways – her ideas apply to many fields. getAbstract recommends her book to athletes, salespeople, leaders, speakers, teachers and anyone who wants to perform well in the clutch.
