Take It to the Limit

Julie Ridge, Author Rawson Associates $16.95 (207p) ISBN 978-0-89256-281-7
Ridge, an endurance athlete who was the first to swim twice around Manhattan island, here joins with health-and-fitness writer Zimmer to produce a guide to maximizing athletic performance and satisfaction from that performance. The approach begins with mental preparation: readers are encouraged to believe they can do anything they set their minds to, and urged to establish personal goals. The authors caution against going too far and show how to cope with the depression that follows a competitive event, whether won or lost. The book's second half offers information on nutrition, exercise and the like. Although intended as inspiration for achievement in any aspect of life, this book will appeal primarily to endurance athletes. January 30
