Summary

Performance coach Alan Stein Jr. shares the secret principles used by world-class performers that will help you improve your productivity and achieve higher levels of success.

High achievers are at the top of their game because of the discipline they have during the unseen hours. They have made a commitment to establish, tweak, and repeat positive habits in everything they do. Raise Your Game examines the top leaders in sports and business and proves that success is a result of the little things we do all the time.

The basic principles provided in Raise Your Game are simple, but not easy. We live in an instantly downloadable world that encourages us to skip steps. We are taught to chase what's hot, flashy, and sexy and ignore what's basic. But the basics work. They always have, and they always will.

Raise Your Games will inspire and empower you to commit to the fundamentals, create a winning mindset, and progress into new levels of success.

Must listen, a truly brilliant audiobook

Brilliant content, great stories/references and articulated in a manner that grabs you.

A very bold statement, but this is without doubt the best audiobook I’ve had the pleasure of listening to thus far.

Completed within 4 days and genuinely couldn’t put it down.

A must listen.

Great book but not for everyone

Enjoyable listen but heavily sports focused - specifically basketball. I'm a sports fan but struggled with some of the intense analysis of basketball. Lots of references to the corporate environment so not as relevant to entrepreneurs/small businesses. Overall though, I thought had some very useful information

Must read!

Alan understands tremendously what it takes to ascend to the next level - in sport, business or life. With his motivating yet calm tone, this book is a MUST READ for anyone who wants to ‘raise their game’ and push their limits. [This review is from Ed Grayson, son of the account owner.]

Listen AND Purchase!!!

As an avid audiobook listener, after chapter 2, I did something I have never done before. Purchased the hardcopy of a book I was listening to. Not only did I purchase one, I bought 8. Copies for my team. Not a sports team, team of executives, or a team of sales people, but a team of Accountants. Alan Stein, Jr. has done his research! This book is exactly as promised, a compilation of what the Best of the Best do - in an easy to understand, actionable format. My list of quotes and ideas kept getting longer and longer the more I listened. While there were many references to sports icons and teams - all the information is easily applicable to everyone. You will get something out of this book. Guaranteed.

Do not hesitate. This is one of the best!

Good compilation of other people's quotes

Interesting basketball stories. However, the book is mostly a compilation of other people's phrases, traditional management quotes and ideas.

boring and cliche

this is the first book I have ever returned to audible.
with such good reviews I forced myself to listen for an hour, thinking I just had to get to the good part.
the author speaks in monotone and spews cliche after cliche.
I honestly have no idea why this book is so highly rated.

The best part of this book is how it is organized so that you can read the whole thing or only the parts that apply to you.
And where you are in your life at this yun

Alan Leads the way

I've enjoyed Alan's insight for a while on social media as well as his podcast "Hardwood Hustle". Although I've never met him, I've always felt like we connected on how we think about what is right and how to do things well. He is much better at putting those things into words. As a 911 dispatcher, I deal with a lot of immediate situations and will use what I learned and what was reinforced in this book to better myself and hopefully improve my team which will make responders and the public a bit more safe. The self tests are something to share with team members and create personal goals off of. If you enjoy this book, you may want to check out Angela Duckworth's "Grit" also. - Kris Mason

too much sports

take out the sports talk and the valuable part will be left. half the size and twice the quality. almost everything here is a cliche but they are great and worth repeating

Incredible insight for players, coaches and all

This is a great book for anyone trying to achieve. But what a guide book for a basketball player in this day in age. He gives you the most incredible stories from the best in the business and basically walks you through how to achieve your goals and greatness.

Building a team, build it with the team members looking to raise their game

Alan does a great job of bringing in his countless stories as a performance coach with young athletes and how this applies to building great business teams. I enjoyed it so much that I have my 13 year old son listening to it as well.
