This concise, engaging text, distinguished by its skillful integration of theory and practice, addresses the key principles of sport, exercise, and performance psychology. It reflects the broadening of sport psychology studies to encompass more widespread human performance research. Emphasizing practical applications of theory, the book helps students interested in pursuing a career in sport and exercise psychology, as well as those focused on such occupations as coaching and athletic training, to recognize the applicability of sport and exercise psychology principles to their everyday lives and future careers. To avoid an overabundance of extraneous theories and research, the text takes a streamlined “less is more” approach by focusing on just the core theories underpinning sport psychology. Chapters address such essential concepts as individual differences, personality, motivation, stress and coping, decision making, and burnout in the context of human performance. Bringing these topics to life are companion “Applying the Concepts” chapters demonstrating how these principles are directly applied in real-life situations. Interviews with researchers, coaches, athletes, and other individuals from performance-intensive professions vividly reinforce the book’s content. Additionally, the text contains insights on theories and research findings that students can apply to their own experience. Critical thinking questions and “Individual Challenge” activities promote understanding and further exploration. An instructor’s package includes a test bank and PowerPoints. KEY FEATURES: Illustrates key theories and research with practical applications Written in a concise and easily accessible manner Provides examples of practice applications in sport, exercise, and other areas of human performance Includes interviews with researchers, practitioners, coaches, athletes, and other performance-intensive professionals Explains how theoretical concepts can be applied to a student’s personal experience

»Nicht nur Freundschaft, sondern die ganze verrückte, ungerechte Welt wird einem präzisen prüfenden Blick unterzogen.« New York Magazine.Beim Tanzunterricht lernen sich zwei kleine Mädchen kennen und werden Freundinnen. Beide träumen davon, Tänzerinnen zu werden. Doch nur die eine hat Talent. Die andere hat Ideen: über Rhythmus und Zeit, über schwarze Haut und schwarze Musik, über Stammeszugehörigkeit, Milieu, Bildung und Chancengleichheit. Als sich die beiden Mädchen zum ersten Mal begegnen, fühlen sie sich sofort zueinander hingezogen. Die gleiche Leidenschaft fürs Tanzen und für Musicals verbindet sie, doch auch derselbe Londoner Vorort und die Hautfarbe. Ihre Wege trennen sich, als Tracey tatsächlich Tänzerin wird und erste Rollen in Musicals bekommt. Ihre Freundin wiederum jettet als Assistentin der berühmten Sängerin Aimee um die Welt. Als Aimee in Afrika eine Schule gründen will, reist sie ihr voraus und lässt sich durch das Land, in dem ihre Wurzeln liegen, verzaubern und aus dem Rhythmus bringen. Dieser grandiose Roman von Zadie Smith, der in den USA und in Großbritannien von Presse und Publikum gefeiert wird, erzählt am Beispiel zweier Freundinnen vom Siegen und Scheitern, vom Beginnen und Enden. »Bewegend, lustig und wahrhaftig analysiert dieser Roman mit der Eleganz von Fred Astaire oder Michael Jackson Themen wie Hautfarbe und Weltpolitik.« Kirkus Reviews

Modernes Klavierspiel

Die von Karl Leimer und seinem Schüler Walter Gieseking begründete und weiterentwickelte Methodik des Klavierspiels hat unter Pianisten und Klavierpädagogen weite Verbreitung gefunden. Aus der Absicht entstanden, der Loslösung des Technischen von der musikalischen Gestaltung entgegen zu wirken, wurde ein System entwickelt, das allen Aspekten des Musizierens wieder gleiche Bedeutung zukommen lässt: der Ausbildung der pianistischen Fähigkeiten ebenso wie der Analyse der Musik und dem Training von Gedächtnis und Gehör. Bedingung aller künstlerischen Gestaltung ist nach Karl Leimer die intellektuelle Aneignung, bei der dennoch die Natürlichkeit des Vortrags nicht vernachlässigt werden darf. Die beiden Arbeiten "Modernes Klavierspiel" und "Rhythmik, Dynamik, Pedal" erscheinen erstmals zusammengefasst in einem Band.
