W. Timothy Gallwey -The Inner Game of Tennis The best book on our philosophy of managing is not a management book at all. It's a book about tennis written in 1975. It doesn't say anything about business but it says a lot about performance, and it has influenced the whole concept of what is known today as "coaching". Buy it here
