Publisher's Summary

Hamish Brewer (aka the Tattooed Skateboarding Principal) grew up in a home disrupted by poverty, addiction, and family dysfunction. He understands the feelings of fear, lostness, and desperation that overwhelm too many children today - because that was his life. That experience is what drives him to work relentlessly to empower people living in the toughest areas to envision and create a better future for themselves.

Disrupt the norm. That is the challenge Hamish, a Nationally Distinguished Principal, calls educators, students, families, and communities to accept. And as he authentically shares his life experiences and adventures in this audiobook, you, too, will be inspired to...

Believe that something bigger and better is possible. Pursue your best, whatever it takes. Transform your school. Become the educator you always dreamed of being. Leave a legacy that pushes others to achieve their best! Relentless is more than a motto. It’s a mission of total passion and purpose. And it’s the only way to win at work and at life.

Are you ready to take your life and work to the next level? Be Relentless!

STRONG Leadership, "Documentaryish"

There is no doubt that the ideas in this book are the principles schools should be based upon. Sometimes deep down one knows what they should be doing, but are afraid to put it into action. The author is definitely fearless, relentless, and a game changer. It did read a little like more of an autobiography than a reference for educational leadership; however, excellent wisdom and advice is given throughout such as it being okay to "Love" your students. It was also inspiring to see what the writer had accomplished and is still doing to achieve success even in underachieving schools.

Powerful story of leading with love and kindness

Hamish is inspiring. He loves kids and makes it known. I loved reading his book and love pulling strategies from it. I have told my students to not allow anyone steal their future from them. This is powerful and easy for students to understand. Too often students give up on themselves when they should fight harder and go one more round. I love Hamish's love for students and love that he is transforming how educators talk about love and relationships in education. Be relentless and go one more round for kids. They deserve it.

Teachers and admin read!!

What an inspiration for teachers and hopefully more so for admin. I want to go work for this man, I want to be a part of his community! He reiterated the same message over and over, giving more light and material on the goal for teachers and admin. I changed practices in my teaching and I have immediately seen a change and difference in my students and behaviors. Always let your students know that you love them!!

Excellent!

The passion of the author and unique testimonials made the audiobook even more awesome!! I will have to purchase the book to have visual documentation of strategies used to enhance student performance; it was a bit much for note taking. I recommend purchasing Whispersync for this one.

Great Read!

As a new Principal of a Title I School, I came in with a vision to provide each student, teacher, staff and parent with a school where they feel welcome, safe and loved! Listening to Brewer reminded me of the importance of being RESILIENT and never giving up in the pursuit of building ONE School, ONE Team, ONE Goal, striving for “A”cademic Excellence with humility and LOVE.

Enjoyed easy to listen to.

Enjoyed listening to the book more than reading the book. it was nice to be able to go back and say listen to chapter 5 or whatever so that you could go back and review and listen in the car.
