"As a 5x Major League Baseball All-Star, there were many times where I was 'in the zone'. The crowd was silent, the baseball moved in slow motion looking like a beach ball and everything that could go right did. Away from the baseball diamond, my heart yearned to be in the zone as well, where I could have peace and joy despite the circumstances in my life. Dr Bill's book will help you play your game and live your life in the zone! This book will not only help you to be the greatest athlete you can be but it will inspire you to be the SAINT God calls you to be." --Mike Sweeney, Former Kansas City Royal, now Studio Analyst for the Major League Baseball (MLB) Network
"In this fast-paced read Dr. Thierfelder pulls back the curtain to reveal the psychological and physical training secrets of world-class professional athletes and Olympians alike. This Pro-Sport Doctor and Sports Agent rattles the cage of traditional training techniques to produce immediate, remarkable and quantifiable, results. He leaves zero margin for excuses or mediocrity and unabashedly reminds all of us that virtue and hard work are currency in our everyday lives. This is so much more than another self-improvement book; it is a blue print for turning your peak performance into a common occurrence. Less Than A Minute To Go is as appropriate and necessary for a business person, parent or military leader as it is for a coach. If you are leading anybody (and we are all leading somebody) you need to read, Less Than a Minute To Go!" --Michelle Holden, Leadership and Management Consultant
"If you love peak experiences - moments of acting perfectly in the right way at the right time in the right place - you will learn here how to acheive them ever more frequently. I don't quite trust people who don't love and respect sports. I trust Bill Thierfelder a lot! He gets it. He sees the sheer beauty of the perfect act - of doing exactly the right thing, at the right time , in the right way - especially in almost impossible circumstances." --- Michael Novak, author of The Joy of Sports
"Bill Thierfelder has taken sports to a whole new level in this comprehensive look behind the scenes as an Olympian, sports agent, and president of one of the best small colleges on the planet. He will show you there is an alternative to the muscle-breaking, steroid pill-taker and the whiny athlete who is making millions. Bill shoots with .50 caliber automatic bullets at the current sports scene and if you are there, or just curious, read this with your headlights and siren on!" -- Humpy Wheeler, former President of Charlotte Motor Speedway and legendary NASCAR promoter.
