Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There is wisdom to be gleaned from Bilas, and by the end, it’s easy to believe that the only obstacle to improved toughness is one’s own unwillingness to work at it.” Kirkus Reviews
“Living as we do in the golden age of trash-talking, Toughness arrives just the right time as a corrective.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review (editor’s recommendation)
