After careful explanation of each theory, Huber details concrete examples, guidelines, and specific applications for coaching. In addition to summary information, each chapter concludes with ?Your Coaching Toolbox,? which focuses readers on ways to incorporate their newly gained knowledge into their interactions with athletes.
