    "Disappointed"

    I've heard so much about Tony Robbins and this book that I didn't think twice about buying it. Maybe my expectations were too high but I didn't enjoy it at all. Robbins sounds insincere, like a bad actor.
    That said, I'm not sorry I purchased it. This is one of those books that people talk about a lot but I couldn't sit down to read. I like having the chance to listen to it while I walk somewhere or do the dishes.

    Story
    "Does not worth it at all"
    What disappointed you about Awaken the Giant Within?

    It did not attract my attention and it is boring to listing to someone who talks about himself for 20 minutes. I simply stopped listening


    What was most disappointing about Anthony Robbins’s story?

    The first 20 minutes he was talking about himself and how great he was. That was 20% of the whole audible book. I was so disappointed that stopped listening


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    By just talking about himself


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Awaken the Giant Within?

    It is only 100 minutes and thinking of cutting part of it. For sure the 15 minutes of first 20 minutes can be cut with no effect on the content.
    Also, the funny inspirational sentences that is read by a voice of a woman in between. It is distracting. It feels like using a soft female voice to cover the weakness of the audible book. Like people who cant sing but bring pretty dancers to have a good show!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to about 10 audible books and this has been the most useless and aggravating one so far. It supposed to be motivational and make me feel better but I am mad now

    "SO Not Worth It!"
    What would have made Awaken the Giant Within better?

    More content


    Would you ever listen to anything by Anthony Robbins again?

    Yes, if there was more content


    What didn’t you like about Anthony Robbins’s performance?

    It seems like he is attempting to get the listener excited about what he's saying by reading with an exaggeratedly breathless, excited tone of voice. Come on -- are readers really that easily manipulated?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Awaken the Giant Within?

    The scenes where he describes all his wonderful toys (as if to say, "See what my system has done for me?").

    "Extremely motivating!"

    Each of us possesses that giant within us - we simply must zero in on our strengths and ACT with a consistent sense of urgency.

    "Still one of the best at what he does..."

    Tony Robbins is still one of the best gurus out there, and this was one of his original programmes. Reading his books was not as powerful for me as listening to his actual recordings. To actually hear Tony's enthusiasm, energy and passion in your ears, in stereo, is far more engaging. Even listening to a ten or twenty minute segment while walking to the bus stop can fire you up. You have an edge over most people who listen to their own negative inner voice, or replay negative comments from their past. In this programme, he covers 'pattern interrupts' and how to erase those old 'mental tapes' many people play on a loop to themselves. Break old patterns and learn new ones.

    Story
    "Short but Very Sweet"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This book is long enough to explain the method but short enough to get you fired up into taking action.


    What other book might you compare Awaken the Giant Within to, and why?

    This is a short version of alot of the books that I read. Also, Anthony Robbins is very like Jim Rohn when he speaks. He is, however, very much unique and his presentation - in my opinion - is amazing. My mentor.


    What about Anthony Robbins’s performance did you like?

    His delivery and passion could sell absolutely anything.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His story about how he cried, believing that his life was worthless - then not too many years later when he arrived at his seminar and thousands of people were fighting to see him. Result!


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to change your life or any aspect of it - listen to this. It is the shortest self-development audiobook - but the strongest to get you motivated to make more progress and develop a plan to succeed.

    "Keep on listening to this one"
    Would you listen to Awaken the Giant Within again? Why?

    This book, shortened as it it, is ideal for train journeys. I listen to it when I know I am going to have a difficult day and find it very helpful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Awaken the Giant Within?

    Listening to Tony's story as a child and having no food yet someone took the initiative and delivered a full Thanksgiving feast for no charge. This inspired Tony to provide many 1,000s of these food baskets for other needy families at Thanksgiving.


    Have you listened to any of Anthony Robbins’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Anything by Tony Robbins is awesome to me.

    "A giant in personal development"

    Tony Robbins is one of the biggest names in personal development over the past 25 years. This relatively "slim" audiobook distills some of the advice of perhaps his most well known book, and acts as a perfect introduction to the rest of his work. Robbins' delivery is quintessentially American personal-development guru - to be fair, he almost invented the style! Whilst this audiobook is a good way to discover if he's for you, a lot of it now sounds very dated - especially in light of more "scientific" development titles such as 59 Seconds and The Happiness Advantage. Still, worth a listen to anyone curious.

    "How much does this actually impact?"

    High energy type that Mr R is, I didn't find that this actually moved me on in a meaningful way.
