• About the book

    Espresso Lessons is the companion to Rock Warrior's Way, with practical exercises. A good cup of espresso is big coffee in a small cup. Likewise, Espresso Lessons concentrates the essence of the Rock Warrior's Way method.  You'll need the original Rock Warrior's Way for the bigger story behind the practice, but for no-nonsense exercises to help you improve your mental game on the rock, this book is a gem. Here is a blurb by Julie Ellison of Climbing Magazine about Espresso Lessons.

    About the author

    Arno Ilgner (from his website warrior’sway.com): In 1995, after a thorough search of the literature and practice of mental training and the great warrior traditions, Ilgner formalized his methods, founded the Desiderata Institute, and began teaching his program full time. Since then, he has helped hundreds of students sharpen their awareness, focus attention, and understand their athletic (and life) challenges within a coherent, learning-based philosophy of intelligent risk-taking. Ilgner considers the joy and satisfaction in the effort – the “journey” – intimately linked to successful attainment of goals, the “destination.” Alumni of his courses now include some of the nation’s most prominent climbers. Ilgner has run clinics across the USA and Australia. He has worked with young competition climbers and written national magazine articles based on his methods. He holds a BA in geology, spent several years operating his own geological consulting firm in the Wyoming oil fields, acted as Chief Financial Officer for an industrial tool distribution company, attended the Army Ranger School, and served a non-combat tour of duty in Korea. He currently resides with his family near Nashville, Tennessee.

    Ever experienced a fear of falling, fear of failure, or any other negative thoughts that distract you from climbing your best? Author Kevin Roet's interest in climbing psychology developed because of direct experience with his own fear of falling. If you would like to push your limits instead of finding a myriad of reasons to say "take", then this book is for you. Rooted in modern psychological concepts like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and current scientific research, the book will help break down your fear response and allow you to shift your focus away from your fear. Kevin runs workshops on climbing psychology and has solicited feedback from students, honing his concepts into a very readable and colorfully illustrated book.

  • About the book

    How does it feel to rock climb - the touch, ethics, companionship, landscape, and language? A Feeling for Rock explores such topics in a clever mix of poetry, cartoons, photographs, essays, and interviews with both lifelong climbers and total beginners. Fun for dipping into or a more immersive read, it will brighten your climbing experience. A Feeling for Rock won the Climbing Literature Award 2021 at Banff Mountain Book Competition. "I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. It's thoroughly weird, which is GOOD." - Andrew Bisharat “One of the pleasures of reading this book is you rarely know what Dobner is going to come up with next… If…you too have been wondering where the joy of climbing has gone, I recommend you get yourself a copy of A Feeling for Rock.” - Ian Parnell Read the review by Andrew Bisharat over at Evening Sends here, and the one by Ian Parnell at UKClimbing here.
