The Joy of Sox: Weird Science and the Power of Intention

The Joy of Sox: Weird Science and the Power of Intention is a potentially life-changing book that’s focused on the science of consciousness research and how invisible energies can influence results and outcomes across all aspects of life -- including what happens at the ballpark!

The book takes an unblinking look at the powerful, invisible connection that the Boston Red Sox fans built with the players on the team through their own distant intentions. Based on a documentary film with the same name, The Joy of Sox explores how the well-known "home field advantage" at a ballgame is the result of far more than just support from fans in the stands and the comfort of playing in a familiar environment. As it turns out, intangible energies are the key.

Written by Harvard psychiatrist Eric Leskowitz, MD, a key member of the documentary production team, the book describes computer studies performed at Fenway Park and in the laboratory, outlines the existence of invisible "fan energy" and its impact on Boston Red Sox players, and shows how emotional resonance creates team chemistry. Surprisingly (or maybe not-so-surprisingly!), these experiments revealed how invisible forces such as remote intention, healing prayer, and interpersonal brainwave interactions bring fans together in a way that can lead to peak performance on the baseball diamond.

The Joy of Sox is a remarkable, one-of-a-kind book that beautifully highlights the interplay between the world of sports fans and subtle energy. It artfully uncovers something most sports fans have intuitively known all along -- there is an undeniably powerful connection between true fans and the teams they love. Their undying loyalty builds an energy bridge that helps the team, and it’s the same energy that can also help fans (and non-fans) get into the zone of peak performance in their daily lives.

The Joy of Sox documentary film was broadcast nationally on PBS and features appearances by David and Donna. It is now viewable at no cost on YouTube. You can watch here for free. The Joy of Sox book is available on Amazon.
