So I bought the book.
BOOM! It nails it. I can relate to a lot of what he says. I've always known that there are just a lot of weak people out there that can't keep up or perform at top levels. That's not something to ignore and say "oh everybody is special in their own way" or "i'm sure he's a nice person so it's okay" - when it's time to perform you have to perform! End of story. This book is for the people who can (or at least have the desire and are working on being able to) perform at top levels. It goes into the mindset of a high achiever. It gives you permission to act the way you already know you want to act deep down inside. If you always listen to the weak people and their beliefs on how you should behave it begins to tame your inner beast! This book is a breath of fresh air in a world where there's an epidemic of mediocrity and conformity and weakness.
If after reading this book you don’t feel like everything is possible, every dream you hold so close to you is reachable, if these book doesn’t make you jump out your seat and run after everything you wanted to do, go see a doctor because there must be something wrong with you! I could barely sit down and read this book, I had to read it standing up because I couldn’t be still, it is that powerful. Go get yours!
Tim Grover has been coaching some of the greatest basketball players to play the game. He started with Michael Jordan and has coached the likes of Dwayne Wade and Kobe Bryant.
Tim is intense and has no room for anything less than your absolute best and when you’ve given everything you’ve got, he’s going to ask you to give a little more. He takes it to 11!
The book describes three types of people, coolers, closers, and cleaners. Coming from the sales world, I’ve always thought that the “closer” was the ultimate moniker ala Alec Baldwin’s famed line in Glengarry Glen Ross, “Coffee is for Closers!” Turns out, the ultimate label desired is the “Cleaner.”
Tim is extremely direct throughout this book. He tells you exactly how he feels and sometimes you might even feel like he’s scolding you. He’s not into the rah rah feel good self-help stuff like the glass is half-full, having a positive attitude, or being filled with passion, etc. All that matters at the end of the day is your ACTION!
This book is filled with all kind of memorable quotes and many about getting into ACTION and to stop “thinking.” He despises many well-known clichés like, “good things come to those who wait.” Tim says, “good things come to those who WORK!”
Amazon readers give this one a 4.3 after 610 reviews. Goodreads has it at a 4.06 after 2,005 ratings and 223 reviews. I give it a solid 4 stars and strongly encourage you to pick it up if you’re in need of a swift kick in the arse!

I think this is what is left to me from this book:
Decide. Commit. Act. Succeed. Repeat.
Yes it motivates for success and this requires complete dedication .Dedication and relentless hard work equals results.
But is that all we want?
Some of my highlights from the book:
-In real life, being relentless is a state of mind that can give you the strength to achieve, to survive, to overcome, to be strong when others are not. It means craving the end result so intensely that the work becomes irrelevant.
-If you want to be unstoppable, you’ve got to make the commitment.
-Cleaner, the most intense and driven competitor imaginable. You refuse limitations. You quietly and forcefully do whatever it takes to get what you want. You understand the insatiable addiction to success; it defines your entire life.
-Being relentless means demanding more of yourself than anyone else could ever demand of you, knowing that every time you stop, you can still do more. You must do more.
-Relentless is about achieving the impossible.
-Relentless is about never being satisfied, always driving to be the best, and then getting even better. It’s about finding the gear that gets you to the next level . . . even when the next level doesn’t yet exist. It’s about facing your fears, getting rid of the poisons that guarantee you will fail. Being feared and respected for your mental strength and toughness, not just your physical abilities.
What I didn’t like in this book is:
• The language he uses is too harsh
• There is a lot of repetition
• Happiness is mentioned only once and not related with success, according to the author there is only one goal in life “success” and when you succeed , comes “Next”
• He says we are born bad : “Born bad. Taught to be good. Or if you prefer: born relentless, taught to relent”. I believe we are born with both good & bad and whatever we feed grows in us.
