Description

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.

repetitive ...

literally just tells different stories of the same point for over 6 hours. the book really needs a few lines. if you want to be unstoppable, dont make excuses, always show up, work hard regardless of circumstances and always believe there's no limits on people. anything can be solved if you're willing to go the distance to solve it. lastly, understand that the negatives will most likely be you will be very alone, and misunderstood, but will be legendary and always get the job done. There you have it, the whole books message.

Boastful and repetitive... no need for a book.

The narration is great, a few times the expressions used made me smile. Unfortunately though it feels as though the same story is being told over and over again. I kept thinking to myself : "I get it, Michael Jordan had an amazing work ethic. You are an amazing trainer, please stop it with the boasting." It kind of comes off as weird advice, to be truly unstoppable you must become somewhat of an ego maniac where nothing matters but success. No room for compassion or empathy, just get whatever you want by any means necessary. Some stories were entertaining and brought on good points albeit they we're always the same ones. Show up, do the work, dont give up, always aim higher. The tone is very pretentious. I did not enjoy it.

I wouldn't want to hang out with this guy

The voice over dude sounds like an arrogant asshole. There's a difference between confidence and arrogant. In that way Grover comes across as a failure. The stuff he talks about is fairly legit as I've heard it in similar other books but it feels more like when you sit in a bar or a party and the guy wants to go on and on about how awesome he is too drunk to know that it's getting old.

it's okay but kinda basic

I loved his story and inspiration to be a quote on quote cleaner but found at times he's selling himself to whomever other athletes or team managers might be reading it. Again nonetheless absolutely pure knowlegde on the subject and for me especially since I plan on playing professional basketball this book is nothing but benefitional

The book is legit

I go through two books a month on audible and I’ve returned every motivation book to draw except this one. You may not like everything he has to say but his position is simple, true and I was motivated throughout the entirety. I plan to listen to it again in a couple of months.

One of the best

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.

Make sure it’s what you’re looking for!

Depending on what you’re looking for this book may be for you. If you’re looking for a sports(mainly basketball) book about an outstanding trainer and the exceptional athletes he has trained; the ins and outs of being in the top 3% of all athletes and the sacrifices they often make...this book is for you. If you’re looking for insight on how they got there...make another selection Parts of the book are interesting if you like hearing about the exceptional athlete’s thought patterns and those that play beside him. The author coins these patterns into three types(coolers,cleaners,closers). They’re easy to understand and doable but here’s where the book gets repetitive and redundant and you may start to fade away. Although the author doesn’t like the cliche motivational quotes, etc....he does a lot of this just in a different way. I was a little surprised by all the 5 star reviews especially those that said they were super motivated from it. He’s definitely not talking to you! A cleaner or closer wouldn’t listen to this(at least not in its entirety)....mainly because there’s no insight on how to become that type of person. No practical application. That’s why I said it’s a sports book about an exceptional trainer and the athletes he trains. The author got to toot his horn, over and over and over again...which made the book too long. Overall it wasn’t bad, but I do feel I could have used that time better if I had chosen a book with practical application and less obsessions over the great ones!

Too high-level, couldn't get through it.

Any additional comments?

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

Tremendously repetitive and not very practical

The whole premise of the book is that you have to be very disagreeable to be unstoppable. If you are into that, I think you can benefit more from reading Steve Jobs' biography. The tone of the book is very arrogant disguised in a cloak of "objectivity", but I didn't hear a lot of objective and/or practical advice. If you want more practical advice on being better and "unstoppable" you're better off listening to The Little Book of Talent", at least you'll have some science backing up Daniel Doyle's statements as well as a more balanced approach to success.

Awesome

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.

Finally ...a book that motivates

Typically I find that most self motivation books are .... for beginners.. the "you gotta have a dream, get motivated and stay motivated" kind of banter that generally helps someone who is starting off -- aka the Rookie of entrepreneurship... This book is for A type personalities. The people who don't take isshhh and truly have the mentality of being "relentless" I've read/listened to it multiple times and often refer back to it when I need a pick me up.. Thank you for this book!!

This literally did change my life

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.

Mildly distrubing

Written from a male point of view for males. No criticism on this point, but if the potential reader identifies as female, this may be helpful to know. I guess I can sort of see how someone might get something out of this book, however, I'm somewhat surprised it received so many positive reviews. Some suggestions encourage a complete lack of empathy and respect for others. For example, while the author doesn't outright condone of extra-marital affairs (and other egregious acts), he definitely provides the reader with a condoning tone. I actually found the book a bit disturbing. Even more disturbing were the plethora of positive reviews. I'm not sure what that says about society. Are we that eager to get ahead?! Sigh. Just not the book for me.
