Publisher's Summary

"There's a secret to mastery that you may have never heard, a single little thing that only the very best in the world know how to do. In fact, I believe it is the only thing anyone can do to gain true mastery at anything, and it's an equal opportunity principle. It can be applied to fulfill your potential in business, in sports, in your relationships, as well as your overall life. Do you want to know what it is?"
In the crowd, Jason leaned forward, laser focused. Kicked off his basketball team after a season-ending fight, his only chance to play ball again was to sell enough books door-to-door over the summer to get back on the team. He never needed wisdom like he needed it now. But little did he know that the answer he was seeking was about to change his life forever. Pound The Stone is the intense and inspiring story of a young man's journey through the obstacles, defeats, and eventual victories that come while developing grit on the path to mastery. Told in the same engaging fable style as Chop Wood Carry Water, this is a deeper dive into the timeless principles that guide and inspire anyone who seeks greatness in life, and covers everything from true success, to the perfection trap, the value of failure, why courage is contagious, and why vulnerability can save your life. Pound The Stone will move you, inspire you, and hopefully encourage you to choose love and courage over fear and shame.

Good Message but lots of Borrowed Content

If you're looking for a good parable with lots of good lessons in it, this would be a good read but not a lot of original subject matter. A lot of the content is borrowed from other popular titles like G.R.I.T., Legacy or recycled from Chop Wood, Carry Water. The Pound the Stone premise is taken from Greg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs' Pound the Rock philosophy. The "TD" character is supposed to allude to Tim Duncan without actually getting permission to use the name. If you've read a lot of the popular titles in the field of leadership then you can skip this one. If you haven't, then it's worth the time.
