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
If you've wanted to understand whether you have it in you to be the best, then this book will tell you if the mindset needed. You can decide for torrid if you have it in you.
Thank you, Tim, for such a wonderful book, and for helping me understand who I am, what my strengths are, and what weaknesses i need to address.
The biggest negative of the book is its repetitive nature and the messianic tone. Does get boring at a lot of places.

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!
Sure he doesn't spoon feed everything to you as some 1 star reviewers are moaning about. And?
Read the book, interpret what he says and look at how you can apply it to your own life. I sincerely wish I had this book when I was a teenager.
Thank you TIm. You've unleashed something lying within me that I've left dormant for way too long.
Within the first few pages it's apparent where you're going and that place is going to be extremely tough to get to, heck if it was easy, everyone would be there.
A very interesting & intense read. I found the book by accident as a recommendation from a Bodybuilding.com podcast I was listening too. Wow, I wish I knew of it sooner.
It's written by a top basketball coach about elite athletes, but you can apply most of the philosophy to any aspect of life.
It does repeat its ideas a lot but that's fine - sometimes you need things drumming in. It helped me make a career change and get out of a rut.
It basically tells you what sort of attitude you need to have to be the best at whatever it is you do. And even if you don't feel you need that, it will push you in a positive direction.
I’m not the type of person that enjoys self-help books; I think the majority are either too cheesy or too self-righteous. “Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable” was the latter. The author is very full of himself, and it comes through in every page. Tim Grover loves to constantly mention all of the famous athletes that he has coached, which is fine to an extent, but it got to the point where it felt like name dropping.
However, my main issue with this book is the overall philosophy. Tim Grover postulates that you can only be truly great at one thing; he call this being a “Cleaner”, and encourages the reader to ignore every aspect of his or her life EXCEPT that one thing they want to achieve greatness in. Want to be an expert in the stock market? Welp, I guess you are going to have to ignore your wife and kids. Has it always been your dream to ski professionally? I guess you are just going to have to be poor until you make it big. This all-or-nothing philosophy is, in my opinion, inherently false and I believe a way for Tim Grover to feel better about ignoring most everything but is coaching career. I do think that it is important to work hard to achieve your goals, but philosophy outlined in this book takes it way too far.
A few other disturbing parts of this book:
1. There is a lot of talk that reminds me of an “alpha male” mentality. One chapter is called “When You’re a Cleaner...You Don’t Compete with Anyone, You Find Your Opponent’s Weakness and Attack”. I don’t want to “attack” anyone, I’m not an animal. I know that I can be successful without dragging others down.
2. Tim Grover thinks that everyone has a dark side, which is true to an extent, but he also believes that no one should apologize when they wrong other people. He believes that cleaners embrace that dark side. Do you think that Tiger Woods acted inappropriately and was right to take a break from golf? Tim Grover doesn’t! He thinks that Tiger Woods should not have apologized and that he was showing weakness by doing so.
3. According to this book, you should never be satisfied with your achievements. There is actually a chapter called “When You’re a Cleaner...You Don’t Celebrate Your Achievements Because You Always Want More”. Make sure that nothing you do is ever good enough, and be sure to work yourself into an early grave.
