Direct, blunt, and brutally honest, Tim Grover breaks down what it takes to be unstoppable: You keep going when everyone else is giving up, you thrive under pressure, you never let your emotions make you weak. In "The Relentless 13", he details the essential traits shared by the most intense competitors and achievers in sports, business, and all walks of life. Relentless shows you how to trust your instincts and get in the Zone; how to control and adapt to any situation; how to find your opponent's weakness and attack. Grover gives you the same advice he gives his world-class clients - "don't think" - and shows you that anything is possible.
Packed with previously untold stories and unparalleled insight into the psyches of the most successful and accomplished athletes of our time, Relentless shows you how even the best get better - and how you can too.

"Tim Grover is the master of mental toughness. This book is the blueprint for discovering what you are capable of achieving, getting results you never imagined, reaching the highest level of success - and then going even higher." (Kobe Bryant)
This is a very blunt, no-nonsense message. It was and is exactly what I need to hear. This book keeps nay-sayers out of my head and the only voice I hear is mine. It's never enough. Get on my level or Get Out Of My Way.

I love this book and always refer back to it. It is one of my top five business books and I consistently recommend it to business professionals in any field.
I've read many professional motivation books. But this is one of the best I have read in a really long time. The book starts off strong and continues strong throughout the entire read. Many books start off slow and don't have actual material until the end. This book is full of advice, motivation and everything a leader needs to know from cover to cover.
If you are looking for a insights, a how-to or arguably even something motivational then this probably is not the book for you.
This book is heavily reviewed and rated at 4.5 stars and my take on it is definitely in the minority. -- I mean no offense by this review but need to add my voice for those who may think that this is a good addition to a their self-help or fitness collection.
I expected the story to be more motivating, offer insights... something. After over an hour into this book it felt very high-level and redundant.
The author is prominently featured throughout the storyline and though I had already assigned him a significant amount of props for his involvement in training the greats, there was an inordinate amount of time spent hearing about how awesome and no-nonsense he is.
The book feels like a bunch of stories about various sports figures and how something they did or how they looked at things makes them relentless. Unfortunately the stories are short and a little obvious.
It's like an essay about heroes that keeps reading "heroes never quit, heroes overcome, heroes don't just want to be the best, they want to be the best...ever". -- All good points but less than I expected.
For a something motivational from a fitness perspective maybe try "Fitness Confidential" by Vinnie Tortorich
For something motivational from a lifestyle perspective maybe try "Take the Stairs" by Rory Vaden
If you're looking for something to motivate you, this is it. The most important thing I got from this book was the mindset of never being satisfied with "good enough." This book gives examples from Kobe, Jordan, Wade, etc and explains why they are who they are and what separates them from those that aren't. It helps to have knowledge of basketball & the NBA, but it's not necessary. The overall lessons in this book apply to anyone in any field looking to find that "hunger" within to be the best.
I loved the whole book and the different stories about Jordan, and all the other players that were driven to be the best. Its a great reminder that the great one's didn't just wake of with that talent, and the time training we don't see that makes them the best, and make it look so natural.
How Jordan would walk into the visiting teams locker room to pretend he was just saying hi to someone, when he was truly starting the mental game for the night.
It is a book worth listening to and give you insight to what it truly takes to be the best in anything. Be it a father, in business, in sales, etc.
Grover does a good job describing 3 basic personality types and it seems like he is a really good personal trainer from his stories; but, he doesn't give any kind of action plan to become relentless; all that this book is - is just personal stories. I wish I had my money back for this audio.
The basic premise of the book is that you have to constantly be working at your craft (whatever it is) in order to be relentless. If this concept produces any revelation to you, you've got bigger problems than listening to this audio.
Grover I want you to contact me and send me a check because if you were to cross a bear in the woods and me, you would hope the bear handles the issue before me. (You would have to read/listen to his book in order to catch this reference, but I'm sure Grover caught it.)
An amazing book for anyone who doesn't just want to be good, but be so good they are unstoppable! I read the book first then listened to it. I could listen to this every month...it is that good!
