APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
If you want to succeed at the highest level, you have to work at a higher level. That’s the core philosophy that Tim S. Grover walks you through in his straight-shooting guide about achieving your dreams. A personal trainer to some of the NBA’s most iconic athletes (we’re talking Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant), Grover isn’t interested in doing things the easy way. Instead, he drills into us that to succeed in life, we need to follow a punishing path that includes foreboding rules like “Winning is selfish” and “Winning is a test with no correct answers.” The crux of Grover’s argument is that succeeding at a goal once is only the beginning—true winning requires showing that level of skill and determination over and over again. He promises that adapting his way of thinking will give you the confidence to ignore your flaws and learn how to not to beat yourself up after inevitable setbacks. This book will appeal to anyone who’s looking to snag a promotion at work or up their game in any part of their life.
Personal trainer Grover (Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable) dazzles with his tough-love take on reaching greatness, bluntly advising there are no shortcuts to success: "I know it's common in books like this for the experts' to give you steps'," but "you can't buy a map to the top." Instead, he offers his "winning 13" principles, which include "waging war in the battlefield" of one's mind, embracing difference, and learning that "winning is a test with no correct answers." He pushes back hard on business-school aphorisms, asking why resting is often considered lazy and wondering how being overworked became a symbol of dedication. Grover also warns against blaming others ("Be your own WTF Department," he suggests), urges readers to hold themselves accountable, and frequently references his high-achieving clients, including Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, as evidence that his perspective on hard work pays off. The plain-talking tips won't work for everyone, and those used to advice delivered with a spoonful of sugar will likely find this harsh. Still, those looking for a take-no-prisoners approach to self-improvement will find Grover's philosophy inspiring.
This book is essential to any high achievers . In any field this is the blueprint to go the extra mile into greatness .
