Tim Grover is the performance expert who helped to raise the game of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant to the legendary levels everyone knows them for. Taking over Michael Jordan’s personal performance team when he was in his early twenties, he’s been working with the world’s top athletes for over three decades.

No one knows more about winning than Tim. No one knows more about fitness than Tim. No one knows more about mentality than Tim. But Tim also knows about our hidden insecurities, the ones that drive us and we need to use to our advantage.

Tim’s new book, Winning, opens the lid on what it was like to work with two of the greatest basketball players of all time. It is every bit as awe-inspiring as you would expect because none of Michael, Kobe, or Tim was interested in being anything except No. 1.
