One of the best
I've read many professional motivation books. But this is one of the best I have read in a really long time. The book starts off strong and continues strong throughout the entire read. Many books start off slow and don't have actual material until the end. This book is full of advice, motivation and everything a leader needs to know from cover to cover.

Too high-level, couldn't get through it.
Any additional comments?
If you are looking for a insights, a how-to or arguably even something motivational then this probably is not the book for you.
This book is heavily reviewed and rated at 4.5 stars and my take on it is definitely in the minority. -- I mean no offense by this review but need to add my voice for those who may think that this is a good addition to a their self-help or fitness collection.
I expected the story to be more motivating, offer insights... something. After over an hour into this book it felt very high-level and redundant.
The author is prominently featured throughout the storyline and though I had already assigned him a significant amount of props for his involvement in training the greats, there was an inordinate amount of time spent hearing about how awesome and no-nonsense he is.
The book feels like a bunch of stories about various sports figures and how something they did or how they looked at things makes them relentless. Unfortunately the stories are short and a little obvious.
It's like an essay about heroes that keeps reading "heroes never quit, heroes overcome, heroes don't just want to be the best, they want to be the best...ever". -- All good points but less than I expected.
For a something motivational from a fitness perspective maybe try "Fitness Confidential" by Vinnie Tortorich
For something motivational from a lifestyle perspective maybe try "Take the Stairs" by Rory Vaden
