In other words, you choke. Sian Beilock, an expert on performance and brain science, reveals in Choke the astonishing new science of why we all too often blunder when the stakes are high.

In lively prose and accessibly rendered science, Beilock examines how attention and working memory guide human performance, how experience and practice and brain development interact to create our abilities, and how stress affects all these factors. Sian Beilock, a leading expert on the brain science behind human performance, is a professor in the psychology department at the University of Chicago.

Choke: What the Secrets of the Brain Reveal About Getting It Right When You Have To

Choking is the failure to perform at your best in high-pressure situations — on the sports pitch, in exams, on-stage, during a business presentation, wherever. Sian Beilock's fascinating book outlines where and why people do it causes can vary , why some are more liable to crack than others, and how to minimise the risk that you'll be among them. Unsurprisingly, there's a whiff of self-help about the book, most evident in the grey boxes that litter the text, repeating and highlighting key messages. It is, however, genuinely helpful. I now understand why I perform comfortably in academic tests yet make like peanut brittle in music exams, and have some idea of what to do about it.
