Read about computer studies that measure fan energy in the ballpark, lab tests that prove how positive emotions are contagious, and learn how energetically savvy fans can enhance their team's performance. This book even answers the age-old question: is your favorite sports stadium a sacred space? "The Joy of Sox" starts by laying a foundation of scientific evidence in support of these mysterious forces. It then charts the path by which these ideas have unfolded during Dr. Leskowitz's production of a documentary film of the same name, that led him to interview ballplayers, fans and scientists (including such Hall of Famers as Larry Dossey, William Tiller, Dean Radin, Donna Eden, Esther Hicks and Michael Murphy). The book's final section is a series of energy exercises that show fans - of any sport, in any town - how to maximize their team's performance by tapping into their own heartfelt enthusiasm and transmitting it most effectively to their team. This book is a Trojan Horse - it brings esoteric research into the social mainstream while camouflaged as a book about popular sports. But by uncovering the New Science concepts that underly the familiar events of baseball, "The Joy of Sox" works its transformative magic on our teams, our selves and our society.
