Have you ever felt like there is more beneath the surface of your life just waiting to rise up? 

After his life was shattered from a near-death car accident, author R.T. Stokes was challenged with restructuring and finding greater meaning in his existence in one of the unlikeliest places: deep in the ocean on a Navy submarine.

Serving on that cramped submarine only a few months after the crash forced Stokes to slow down, think about how he was living his life, and what he truly wanted out of it. It was on that ship he realized that the key principles of submarine operations that enabled vessels to overcome the great physical pressure of being underwater were also principles we could use in our daily life as we work to overcome difficulties and adversities and fight to bring our best selves to the surface, each and every day.

In The Relentless Rise, Stokes provides readers with tips and methods to help examine what is really happening beneath the surface of their own selves to better understand who they really are, what they are actually capable of, and what challenges they need to overcome to pursue their own Relentless Rise.

The Relentless Rise maps out effective strategies for self-improvement in conjunction with actual submarine operation, giving readers a Navy-quality structure that could be implemented in whatever their life mission is, and help them rise above the pressure and emerge from the surface with fulfillment.
