Should have been included with Awaken the Giant

The content is inspiring, however a lot of it seems to be a regurgitation of the Awaken the Giant Within. The primary difference is the format of this offering is more along the lines of a daily devotional. Anyone looking for a motivational book will not be greatly disappointed, I just think the Awaken the Giant Within was much more in-depth in inspiring people to take positive action. Robbin's is an excellent narrator.

simple to understand

Thanks for all your work...

Part 1 is better

Truthfully, I really don't think Robbins needed to write a whole other book on pretty much the same topics he preached in his first book/part, Awaken the Giant within. In fact, he actually repeats some of the lines verbatim. I definitely enjoyed that book much more than this one and overall, feel that both should probably be sold together as one.

Delightfully thought provoking.

What made the experience of listening to Giant Steps the most enjoyable?

Perfect for my busy schedule. I was able to nibble, or dig in for a delightful meal of thought provoking nuggets towards my own self-help. I would encourage any one who desires to get the most out of their lives to START now...with this book.

I understand the other Reviews...

Would you listen to Giant Steps again? Why?

Yes so I can write down the action plans

Any additional comments?

The other reviews are pretty much correct. My rating is different because the reason I got this book is because the reviewer who said "should have been included with Awaken the Giant Within" I needed a quick "do it" book to read on my 5 hour drive (after all of these years I can now read @ 2 speed) to entrepreneur training and specifically needed something about action. I knew I wanted Tony Robbins and with the limited selection on Audible, that review pretty much led me to first read Awaken, then Giant Steps, and now Power. The first two are definitely in that order (overview to action). The titles are too cheap for my credits so I purchased them outright. Price is just fine to buy all. My problem is procrastination. I read 2 to 5 books every month (since 2005) and still procrastinate. I found my problem... trying to act before changing my beliefs... bottom line, because I read the books below in the following order I finally realized why I was allowing procrastination to lead. Switching the order and re-reading would have taught me the lesson faster. I recommend the order below.

Pursuit - Devos
Magic of Thinking Big
21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership - Maxwell(anytime)
Today Matters (3)
15 Laws of Growth (3)
The Closer's Survival Guide - Cardone
Pitch Anything
The Oz Principle (5)
The 5 Minute Rule - Mel Robbins (2, 8, 11)
The Four Agreements - Ruiz (1, 4, 7, 10)
The Alchemist
Awaken the Giant Within You - Tony (6)
Giant Steps (9)

Obviously there are way more books, but I only have 5 minutes to write this review so that I can 5, 4, 3, 2,1 ... GO ACT NOW... after learning that to get to action I must first change my agreements/beliefs and associate Pain and Pleasure appropriately so that I can grow, lead, and improve my health (while the health reference is from Maxwell's Today Matters I just stumbled on a summary of Unleash the Power within and this might be an additional guide to the health piece), mind, and finances so I can go and help others do the same!! ;)

Hope this helps!

Giant Steps

This is a great book to have from Audible.com. I set up my kindle at work and let this book play in the back ground as I work tickets on the computer. I find that I tend to get more work done with less errors and still absorb what is being said.

Anthony Robbins has a great speaking voice that just seems to get into my head, even if I am focusing on other things.

Catching my breath! Not finished yet!

If you need motivation, get this. Plan on taking small bites. Tiny steps. It is good but frankly, overwhelming. I lost weight and saved money after just listening to 17 minutes of this.

A bit too basic

What disappointed you about Giant Steps?

Not much helpful and didn't realize it wasn't a true book but rather a daily listen to reflect.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anthony Robbins again?

Maybe...I am just not motivated by such speakers...It's just not in my personalty.

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

Same raspy voice and high energy delivery.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment for the reasons given above.

Relevant but Dated Music Production

Anthony Robbins is always relevant and one of the best motivational gurus around. HOWEVER - poor music mars this production - very dated keyboards make this sound bad. Get past that and try to focus on Anthony's words. But he really should re-record it. The words are timeless, the music isn't!

Too obvious

This one stop solution for all issues is too over simplistic. I have been a huge fan of his book "Awaken the giant within". I would rather recommend that title instead.

an annoying delivery

I think what Anthony was saying was good but could have done without all the dramatic music all the time

Simple steps towards a better life!

If you could sum up Giant Steps in three words, what would they be?

Simple. Inspiring. Motivational.

What did you like best about this story?

Robbins is great at presenting life situations that everyone can relate to.

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

This is the first one. Short, sharp and highly practical.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Small steps to giant changes!

Any additional comments?

Listening to this audio-book on my way to work made me enter the office with a spring in my step and massive smile on my face. Hopeful and excited about the day ahead and confident that I have the tools to make a difference!

Short audio book but full of critical insight

I really like this book, especially chapter 6 and 7 which are used to describe emotions, what they mean and how to use them.

A great guide to excellence by Tony Robbins

I have read and listened to this book and do not get tired of it. Why? Because, like a great dish, has all the ingredients to satisfy your appetite.

Worth a listen

Clear bullet point strategies on how to improve your life in general. Have a pen & paper to make notes about how you can make changes personal to you.

Love this book

Just the inspiration I need!
This book helps to ask yourself the right question and see things in a different perspective, so that you allow your true inner self talk and think rather than the mind taking over

This book is quite good but...

If you have goals and strides as well as a semi positive mindset you will find this book half useful, but if not you will find this extremely valuable and it WILL touch home so you may more positive and productive life.

If you are a more focused and positive minded person this will still help and will give you plenty of metal back ups just in case for struggles, stress and depression, but don't be fooled there's allot more life skills.
