Publisher's Summary

John Tesh has achieved more in life than he ever dreamed possible. But the road to success has been anything but easy - and those challenges have become the secret to his success. Through his story, we can learn how to be relentless, how to achieve what we didn't think was possible, and how to handle our inevitable discouragements.

In this engrossing memoir, Tesh describes how the obstacles that shaped him - including being suspended from college, living homeless for months, and facing a deadly disease - shaped his remarkable life. You'll hear, in never-before-told stories, how Tesh became the youngest correspondent at WCBS News less than 36 months after he was working at a gas station and sleeping in a public park. You'll go inside the unconventional way he composed the now-iconic theme song for NBC Sports basketball and how he and his wife, Connie Sellecca, created the popular, nationally-syndicated Intelligence for Your Life radio program. From live commentary for two Olympic Games to his decade-long role as co-host of Entertainment Tonight and the outrageous gamble that resulted in one of the most successful Public Television concert specials in history, you'll learn how Tesh applied his unique process of focused practice, grit, and perseverance while maintaining a single-minded pursuit of his goals. In 2015, he fought and received treatment for a stage-three cancer diagnosis, but when the cancer returned, he and his wife turned to relentless faith and divine healing scriptures to manifest a victory over the disease.   

Relentless is an astonishing story of how obstacles create opportunity and how faith will lead to triumph.  

"Perhaps best known as a musician and cohost of the early years of 'Entertainment Tonight,' John Tesh provides a memorable narration of his thoughtful, candid, and altogether charming memoir. Tesh's performance is carefully articulated, and personally enveloping for listeners. With occasional Bible quotations peppering the text, both Tesh and his wife Connie Sellecca's deeply held faith is evident. Their shared faith helped the pair successfully overcome repeated serious health issues and other family challenges. Tesh's impressive life and career evolution are here, and the audiobook is a marvelous listening treat." (Audiofile Magazine)

Powerful with Intention

I picked up this book after following John, his wife Connie, and their son Gib on their Intelligence for Life Facebook pages and podcasts. My mom is dealing with Liver Cancer right now and we listened to this book together as we travel from our ranch near Houston to Dallas for her treatments. I had already known of his journey over the years from the podcasts and wanted to find something that was positive for my mom to listen to as we traveled our 3 1/2 hour journey the past two weeks. This book is engaging for the mind as you live John Tesh's journey of becoming who God created him to be. From a guy who just is looking to survive transforms unknowingly into an inspiration for others wanting to survive- this book is funny, enduring, and a message of how to go after the things that matter to you. Thanks for the great story of Life with Purpose, Grit, and Faith.

An interesting story, a sudden ending

The book appears to build up to how Tesh overcame cancer with spiritual healing. Then he dispenses with the topic in a few sentences, in the final chapter. No description of method, his healing journey, nothing.

Incredible Book by an Incredible Man

This book chronicles the life and times of John Tesh thru his beginnings as a college student who was homeless for a time to his ride as a network broadcaster to his Entertainment Tonight years to concert performer to his journey of faith. I found especially interesting his travels to a healing faith that we all seek. Long before reading this, I experienced the healing of our Lord Jesus Christ thru the same methods outlined in this book. I cannot recommend this book more highly. it is easy to listen to due to Mr. Teshs broadcast training. Praise to our Lord for directing me to this marvolous book.

Honest & entertaining with good life lessons

It was very engaging and interesting to see the life story of a true go-getter who has been willing to expose his road of humility and true fulfillment. As someone with a very different personality type, I was still able to glean some great nuggets for my own journey. I also appreciate that John read the book himself which gives even more authenticity to the experiences described.
