    Never read it but I have The Inner Game of Music which is basically the same thing but more music specific - it got me through a few solo performances...

    Zen and the Art of Motorcyle Maintenance, if you are interested in the idea "What is good." Sample:

    "The principles expounded...were no longer rules to rebel against, not ultimates in themselves, but just techniques, gimmicks, for producing what really counted and stood independently of the the techniques--Quality."

    Good quality stuff in this book.
