Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
An all-new production of the phenomenal best seller, now featuring exclusive new conversations with the authors!
For more than two decades, legendary trainer Tim Grover has taken the greats - Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, and hundreds of relentless competitors in sports, business, and every walk of life - and made them greater. Now, for the first time ever, he reveals what it takes to achieve total mental and physical dominance, showing you how to be relentless and achieve whatever you desire.
Direct, blunt, and brutally honest, 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.

Top reviews from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If this was the first book you had ever read on sport psychology, then it would probably be quite insightful. However, some of the content on a "champion's mindset" wasn't particularly original.
If you are less interested in basketball references and examples and more interested in sports psychology/the champion's mind there are better books out there.
Top reviews from other countries
I'm not sure if the author taught this mindset to Kobe Bryant, developed this theory from observations of top athletes or just needed three convenient ways of saying "good, better, winner".
Teenage-me would have spooned this stuff up, but as a grown up I find it hard to buy into all these psychological insights that seem to built on barstool anecdotes.
Plus the author is just too much: "Like my friend and client Charles Barkley... threw a guy through a plate glass window... told the judge "I wish I'd taken him to the third floor and thrown him." Oh behave!
There's nothing about how to actually gain the Cleaner mindset. At times he skates close to giving some useful tips, but then just name drops and moves on.
And ultimately I couldn't take the Closer, Cooler, Cleaner concept seriously. I mean really? Are those the best names he could come up with or just the first ones that popped into his head?
There were a few key takeaway points for the real world, but overall this book was just self promoting the author & was directed at other basketball stars that might want to use him.
1. The Cooler
3. The Cleaner
A person that you give a job to, and you will get the desired result. You will not get anything above that or extraordinary. The desired result will be satisfactory, and in the borders of what you asked for. You are not going to get anything exceptional.
Closer is a level above cooler. Closers are people that you can give a task to do and they will deliver great results back . They will deliver it the majority of the time, as long as not too many variables are thrown at them.
This is a whole new level, a “ I do not think” person. They are so well prepared, they do not think and just do. They spend hours and hours of time (years actually) getting prepared, that no matter what is thrown at them they are going to deliver that end result at all times, over and over and over again. They will be exceptional at it. Their instincts are so dead-on, that no matter what variable, what problem is thrown at them, they can adjust on the fly and have the ability to get themselves in the “zone”.
Tim Grover talks about a few of the athletes he has worked with, from the late Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. Reading this book made me also think of soccer super star, Cristiano Ronaldo and how he is a cleaner too. These lessons from sport can be applied in business too. This is one of the best quotes I got from the book: "A great leader knows the best way to get people to raise their performance is to put them where they can truly excel, not just where you want them to excel. Cleaners don't block others from reaching the top with them, if they're capable and ready."
Overall a great read, especially if you are one of those people wanting to keep doing better and better.
1. Mentality of great basketball players
2. Their daily rituals
3. Their mental strength through tough times
4. How you can toughen your mind to become great.
Q. Best thing about the book?
The blunt style of author. Tim uses straight forward approach. No bull_hit no indirect message. Just pure simple easy ways to become great.
Q. Any criticism about the book?
If you are a self help reader then you won't find it that much helpful. Author is giving general advice by relating it with basketball players.
Good read though
