Let $p(z)=a_0+a_1z+a_2z^2+a_3z^3+\cdots+a_nz^n$ be a polynomial of degree $n$. Rivlin [12] proved that if $p(z)\neq 0$ in the unit disk, then for $0< r\leq 1,$ $${\max_{|z|=r}|p(z)|}\geq \Big(\dfrac{r+1}{2}\Big)^n{\max_{|z|=1}|p(z)|}.$$ In this paper, we prove a sharpening and generalization of this result and show by means of examples that for some polynomials our result can significantly improve the bound obtained by the Rivlin's Theorem.
