    KINDLE [On Form by Mike Brearley] An intellectually rewarding book that should be read multiple times Form is not just for professional athletes but for all of us whether we play a sport or not My only complaint was that it was a bit too digressive for my liking something that the author addresses in the second to last chapter which is about the writing of this book

Being really on form is a matter of choice not chanceMike Brearley was perhaps the only international cricketer who could walk into his team as captain regardless of whether he could find a place as batsman such was his mastery over the subtle mental aspects of the game and his ability to time and again transform a struggling side into one of believers The fact that he was a Cambridge major and had become a part time psychoanalyst even while he was playing professional cricket added to this auraHere Brearley sets out to look at what being in form means and how can one control it both from a sportsman and from a psychoanalyst s point of view He does better explaining the former than the latter But then that could be because of my lack of any great knowledge of psychoanalysisThe way he looks at it Brearley differentiates between being on form and being in the zone He believes that the former is a deliberate state which can be worked on while the role of chance or unexplained actions play a larger role in the latter such as days when everything you do works The latter is typically ephemeral Form also can go up or down and loss of form can cause anxiety but he believes that having a solid foundation in whatever one does helps in getting out of a run of poor form That is the crux of the book that good foundation is crucial whether it is techniue in a batsman or calmness in a canoeist or as a psychoanalyst The book is full of examples from different walks of life illustrating this point He also makes a good point that it is easier to fix problems with even a uick fix if the bedrock is strong Apart from this core assertion the rest of the book tends to ramble a bit across many fields not just other sports football canoeing cycling Formula 1 all feature but also literature the arts and of course psychoanalysis While the breadth is impressive it does feel a little all over the placeBut in an illuminating passage towards the end Brearley looks at what makes a good patient from a psychoanalyst s point of view ie one who is likely to benefit and states that apart from good techniue the other crucial aspect is when there is an openness to change an acknowledgement that there is a problem and a willingness to take some action rather than worried inaction That does make sense There is clearly no shortcut in regaining form whether in sports or in life

I have never seen than 30 seconds of cricket at a time and I am not too interested in Freud s theories So why did this book written by the England s cricket captain and psychoanalyst Mike Brearley became one of my favorite books I guess it has to do with its earnestess and heart The author writes with a uniue flair about his personal experiences There is also an honest desire to learn from everybody else around him about good form and a humble intention to pass that wisdom along But the book doesn t really have a main thesis or a clear structure as it takes us from a wide range of topics and situations even some surprisingly touching insights about the demons inside of all of us that can prevent us from reaching that form we aspireMy favorite self help book if you can call it that Maybe in a re read I will learn a few cricket terms so that some of the stories make sense
