This new collaborative effort between coach and player/doctor combines Dr. Niva’s neurological expertise with Macci’s renowned coaching techniques, offering readers a practical roadmap to fortify their minds and overcome mental obstacles.

BILLION DOLLAR MIND explores the intrinsic link between the mind and personal success, connecting fundamental neurology principles with the teachings that have shaped the careers of tennis stars like Venus and Serena Williams, Sofia Kenin, Andy Roddick, Jennifer Capriati, and Maria Sharapova under Rick Macci’s guidance.
