Here's the review I originally did for Argus - also available as a PDF download on the VCC website.

There have been many books written on the physical aspects of training for rock climbing but the subject of mental training has been largely ignored. Ilgner goes some way to filling the gap with his "Rock Warrior's Way". The book has been developed over 10 years from the course that Ilgner teaches and there is an impressive amount of research and reading behind it.

Ilgner invites you to delve deep into your psyche (if you have the stomach for it) and discover that there are things lurking there that are limiting your performance. Once you have learnt to observe these inner workings in an objective way, you can use the practical advice and exercises to help you break your old habits and to focus your attention impeccably on the task at hand.

To get maximum benefit from "The Rock Warrior's Way" will, like any form of training, take effort and commitment. If you decide to tread the warrior's path, you will definitely want to own a copy. That being said, anyone could gain valuable insight and probably some kind of a performance boost just by reading this book once.

"The Rock Warrior's Way" will be useful to anyone looking to climb better, climb harder or just to enjoy their climbing more.
