High Performance Vision: How to Improve Your Visual Acuity, Hone Your Motor Skills, and Up Your Game

Donald S. Teig. Square One (squareonepublishers.com), $17.95 trade paper (160p) ISBN 978-0-7570-0399-8
After decades of working with athletes, from Little Leaguers to professionals, Teig now shares his knowledge and experience in a guide focused on vision. Teig distinguishes vision from more than mere eyesight: it is the ability to see and interpret the world, and deeply understanding how it works will transform how one plays sports. The book's first second begins by asking readers to set their goals clearly, and then covers the biological basics of vision in easily comprehensible terms, complete with detailed diagrams, questionnaires, and charts brimming with information about preventing injuries and measuring one's skills. Part two focuses on Teig's program, which includes various eye exercises to be performed at home, in the office, or during one's sport. Teig is meticulous in his instructions; each graphic reinforces the information clearly detailed in the text, and there are descriptions of various devices and tools that can be used for sharpening vision. This book should be a mandatory textbook for anyone who participates in or coaches a sport. (Nov.)
