Tony is an exceptional personality - however this audiobook strikes me as a money grubbing bombastic soapbox performance - informing the listener with gusto what he is 'going' to tell you later - By the time he gets to the information (that may have been nuggets at one time) to you - you have have lost interest.
in my opinion - This is a big pitch to get the reader to signup for 'freedom funds' or tony funds - or something else that Tony has setup to trap or sucker listeners into -
trap or sucker? maybe those are not the correct terms but what do you call it when someone with the clout of Tony Robbins writes a book with accompanying documentation sends you to a entity, company, fiduciary or whatever - and he is obviously getting some financial or other stipend from?
Tony's description of his move to Florida makes sense on a financial level - but it saddens the listener when he goes over the top with his braggadocio...
'my wife and I with our 200' foot of ocean frontage - yada yada yada..'
Admittedly Tony Robbins can pitch a point - he has a knack, a real gift - there may be some nuggets tucked into this - but Tony does a poor job of pitching to the audience in this audiobook - often underestimating the average reader's financial savvy - going far far to in depth into the obvious - other times glossing over information that is of real use -
This audiobook presents itself in an altruistic manner - the reality, sadly, is the opposite
Next time - if you really want to 'help' people - and are writing from the heart and not from the perspective of lining your bank accounts - get to the point - forget the tiresome setups - come up with a digest of real information.

...and a boring one at!
Nothing very wrong with the information in this book, but nothing new either. Despite the incessant announcement that you're about to learn a secret only TR's billionaire friends share, there is nothing here that a mediocre junior financial advisor doesn't know or can't tell you.
The constant name dropping is very annoying as are the inumerous attempts to lead the reader /listener to contact organizations in which TR has a stake or interest and that will "help" you design your perfect financial future.
TR might very well be a genius communicator and one of the best salesman ever. In the field of Finance... well, he is the guy who was successfully sued by Wade Cook by the tune of $655,900.
Finally, I understand it is not easy to read 20 plus hours of what basically is a compilation of dry college textbooks interspersed with sponsors ads, but couldn't the narrator at least pretend he was awake?
It's in stark contrast when Tony's voice suddenly changed to Jeremy Bobb's. Jeremy's voice pales in comparison when compared to Tony's in terms of energy, motivation, and congruence. Jeremy's voice just lacks heart and soul. Sadly, Tony only narrated the first and last chapter of this audio book. It's hugely disappointing. I would have given 5 stars if the whole audio book had been narrated by Tony.
I was really looking forward to this audio book since Tony Robbin's book, Awaken the Giant Within is probably my favorite book of all time. This book is now my worst book of all time.
The problems I had with this book are:
#1 Tony Robbins only narrates 2 chapters in the book, and the other narrator is not very good. The last chapter which is about an hour long is Tony Robbins asking the reader to donate to his charity, which is nice but not what I wanted to pay for and listen to for one hour.
#2 Too Long. The book is over 20 hours long and it seemed the first 9 hours were devoted to 401K plans which bored me senseless. The remaining 11 hours were better, but far from interesting.
#3 I do not trust the stock market which the majority of the book is about. Of the approximate 10 millionaires I know personally, all of them made their money in Real Estate or in owning their own small business and 0 from stocks. All of the people I know as well as myself who have invested in stocks have lost money.
#4 Mr. Robbins says not to trust a lot of Stock Brokers and Mutual fund information due to the fact that the information they provide can be manipulated, but than uses the same type of manipulations to prove that his techniques would provide greater profits and zero losses. It also seems that he may be, or will become an investment partner and profit in some of the investments he is pushing. There is a long disclaimer at the end of the book that should be a warning to all.
I sincerely doubt a large number of the 5 star reviewers that this book has received actually read or listened to the book.
Less repetitive hype and more relevant investing information. After the first two hours of hype your first lesson will be, wait for it, the benefits of compounding ... ooh ah.
Some good trashy fiction that will erase this experience from my memory!
I initially liked Tony's energy and enthusiasm but ended up feeling more like he's a snake oil salesmen.
This was my first Tony Robbins experience. Of course I've heard of Tony, and his success, which is the only reason why I didn't delete this book after the second hour (and yes, that's my second regret regarding this book).
Stop trying to sell me to read the book, I already bought it, nothing but empty promises and sales pitches with generalized stats. This book is aimed for people who makes less than 40k per year who will never breakthrough their financial struggle, but who want to see or taste some sort of light before their motivation is depleted and they have to start another one of these books. The only person who id going to make money from this book is Tony
No I will not, he is just scamming people giving false hope to make money, so he himself can become more wealthy. Huge infomercial in text. I can also give concepts of compound interest and how much money one can make from it. In theory everything sounds great
All the sales pitches, stop trying to sell me the book, I already bought it get to the point. Stop with the foreshadow sale. "Ill show you ways the super rich are avoiding taxes, we will cover this in chapter 5.2." this is basically how the book is.
Waste of my credit. This is just like a fad diet book, with tons of promises and not real results. If you want a real book read "Third Circle Theory"
May be high school students or young and inexperienced people with the money.
Get to the point... It is repetitive fluffy and not enough substance to learn. In the first chapter alone, I started to get headaches.
Not sure - Stop repeating the same stuff....
Disappointment and annoying!!
I am surprised by 4.5 rate reviews along with Tony Robbins's reputation. It appears that this book was written for his financial wellbeing. It is very basic and common sense.
Heres 20 odd hours of your life youll never get back. Im not exagerating when i say it took over 10 hours to learn anything. The information within you could find on google by typing I want to be wealthy. I can read Tony Robbins until the cows come home, but in this case. The cows came home and dumped on my carpet.
This isnt only Tonys worst book. Its the worst self help book ive ever read and read several hundred.
No problem with Bob other than it wasnt read by Tony. Bob is clear and articulate but its like going to Rolling Stones concert and hearing Mick jagger is ill but his great voiced pal Bob is standing in. If Tony couldnt do it, he shouldnt have done any of it and been honest about the section READ BY
I would cut the throat of the genius who thought that partnering up with the financial institutions this book was selling for. This book is Tony Robbins, looking like hes selling out. I say looking like, in the hope its not true.
Im a huge Tony Robbins fan but Tony should buy back every copy he can and burn them.
Shorten it by about fifteen hours to start. The repetitiveness of ideas and weak examples that go on and on get old while trying to obtain some actionable advice from his experts.
Shorten it to a few hours and read it himself. He couldn't even subject himself to this 21 hour marathon
Sure, I think Tony is a great motivator but this falls way short of my expectations
Sir John Templeton seems to cause the greatest hypocrisy in the book, by going on and on and on how you cannot time the market, but Sir John made all his money by timing the market. And give up on the trillion with a T and billion with a B and million with a million. Give us credit for being able to hear and knowing the difference.
I was very disappointed starting after probably listening to the first five hours waiting and waiting and waiting for the advice that kept on being teased to be forthcoming. Also, a few of what i consider to be his "best ideas" are structured products that give you all of the upside and no downside and indexed annuities which supposedly do the same are available where? I haven't been able to locate either of these two nuggets in the real world. I suppose I'll have to listen again :( and see if I missed it
Although Robbins initial intent may have been to educate the "average" investor, his unfortunate and continual promotion of Stronghold Financial, of which he HAS ownership interests, creates the same mistrust and skepticism of which he claims to be fighting against. It would appear that his interest in the $1 Trillion+ market of "average" investors - of which he has a very strong following from his previous books, audios, and seminars - seem to cloud his ability to deliver objective solutions to problems that have and are already being addressed. The underlying feeling and criticisms from the material presented gives me the feeling of being corralled into a set up for additional products and services from Stronghold Financial. Robbins has had a unique ability to propagate and promote throughout his entire career. The difference with this book and his past work is that Robbins doesn't come across as having the background nor is the authority in the financial services industry. He talked to a bunch of people and relates those experiences but he has little experience being in the trenches as a financial advisor or running his own fund managing millions of dollars of other peoples money. In his previous work HE was the one who walked the walk and was therefore able to talk the talk with conviction. That is what was compelling with his self-help business and what I found valuable. This current book doesn't display those characteristics. I bought this book entirely on his past reputation and would say this is not his best work.
