The book focuses on engineering Power Rituals to help you bring your A-Game, to help you achieve your Ideal Performance State, to rise to any occasion. The book begin with a story of a green gecko. I would consider a friendly-looking green gecko on the cover. The book is a positive and inspiring read with lots of interesting academic research and lots of great stories about the unique rituals of famous people.
Update: based on early feedback people are strongly preferring the more serious, less whimsical designs. They say it needs to look like a book written by a Ph.D. Thanks!

We love those immortal movie scenes where a character battles back from adversity. Overcomes tremendous odds. Seizes the moment of great importance. Those scenes are why we buy the ticket.
Raw and courageous Katniss Everdeen stepping up to save her sister and become the first volunteer from District 12 in the Hunger Games.
Robin Williams soaring Carpe Diem speech from a desktop in Dead Poet Society.
Louis Zamperini standing bruised but unbroken in that Japanese prison camp.
Jimmy Chitwood taking that last shot in Hoosiers.
We are stirred and inspired as we identify with these heroes. Don’t we all desire to come through against all odds for all those who have believed in us and for all who may be counting on us. For the very best and highest reasons, we need to be clutch. This book will help.
