    "Bring clarity and strategy to your life!"

    Anthony Robbins is the authority on "Life Mastery". I recently bought the newly revised copy of Awaken the Giant Within which made me hesitant to buy this audiobook.
    But Anthony cuts through all the extra, unneeded content within the audio book and gets straight to the point. I still have the hard copy for reference which is great.
    I highly recommend this book for someone who wants to be able to formulate and articulate the things they do in life an why they do them. Anthony gives unbelievable strategy for accomplishing everything you could ever want.

    "NO ONE DOES IT BETTER"

    On those endless TV infomercials, Tony Robbins comes across as an insincere, hyperactive pitchman who's main goal appears to be separating losers from from their hard-earned cash. The really astonishing truth, however, is that Robbins is not only legitimate, but a source of insights and techniques that work better than those of ANY other motivational or spiritual guru whose work I've encountered. I had a difficult time at first overcoming Robbins' high-intensity speaking style. But once I began stopping the tape to respond to his questions and actually applying his techniques (a combination of Neuro-Associative Conditioning and goal-setting wisdom), my life went through a major transformation. I continue to return to his work when my emotional muscles need strengthening and am always surprised at the solidity of the "science" behind what he does. This particular abridgment is concise and powerful and worth its low price many times over.

    "Not worth it"

    I was expecting so much more. It was such a let down. I went out and bought the book afterwards to see if it lost something as an audio book, it certainly did. The 90 minutes didn't do it justice.

    "Smoke Signals"

    The first 18 minutes of this program was Tony introducing himself and being very vauge on what he can do for you in this audio.

    Here's the entire program, in summary:
    1. Decide what you want.
    2. Take Action to go get it.
    3. Notice what works and what doesn't.
    4. If it doesn't work, try something else.

    WOW! Brilliant! Thanks, Tony!!

    The most helpful "take-away" I got from this audio was how you can get RICH by re-purposing old content from other programs and selling it as a separate program. The rest of this audio program is bits and pieces of his other programs re-purposed, and mashed together.

    BOOORRRINGG!

    "Tony Robbins is a master"

    This is an excellent listen. Tony Robbins is not only a motivational speaker, but he is also a psychologist that helps you attain the mindset of a highly successful person. While listening to these tapes, I felt like I had a secret insight into the many luminaries of our society--Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, among others--and what kind of thought processes and stamina they possessed in order to acheive all that they have.

    I feel that I can become a highly successful person now too, with some practice. The only limitations that exist are those that I set for myself.

    "An early Robbins work"

    This audio was really helpful for me. There are some nice motivational phrases, however doing the exercises will get you the most benefit.

    I've heard that since this book Robbins has changed his style, preferring to focus completely on your motivation toward a goal, rather than in this book he also leverages your need to be motivated away from a situation - such as poverty, or neglect.

    In his more recent works you might find his style has evolved with the research he's done on motivation and goals?

    "His methods work!"

    I used these methods 10 years ago to quit smoking.

    I'm glad I could get "Awaken the Giant Within" on my ipod!

    "Anthony at his best"

    This audiobook is short and swet. Tony gets straight to the point with helpfull tips and an outline for changing your behaviors. I think there should be more of his boks on audible.

    "Not that good to be honest."

    Not, bad. But not so good either. To be honest, I was sort of dissapointed. It was an abriged audio so it was not very organized.

    "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.

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