From the reviews:
Important work for any female athlete wishing to understand herself and her performance better
“The subtitle says it all: 'How Female Athletes Collaborate and Compete.’ That males and females are different in terms of brain chemistry is often suggested, but Steidinger delves into the research and presents the findings in a compelling and understandable manner. This is an important work for any female athlete wishing to understand herself and her performance better, for any athlete wishing to take a leadership role on her team, or any coach wishing to maximize team effectiveness as well as individual success.”
Plenty of practical ideas here that will help girls succeed
Sports psychologist and former competitive ultrarunner Steidinger takes an in-depth look at women and girls in sports in this informative book. [...] Tithe author notes differences between the male and female brain that influence their attitude toward sports: 'Whereas girl athletes tend toward best friendship and collaborative emotional relationships, boy athletes line up in order of dominance in teams and have activity-based, (thinking) relationships.' Female athletes and those who strive to support them will find plenty of practical ideas here that will help girls succeed and find fulfillment in sports as well as in their family and social lives.
