"Anthony Robbins is the 'ultimate coach' for that special breed of men and women who will never settle for less than they can be." (Pat Riley, NBA "Coach of the Decade")

    "Great message "

    presented through a mediocre monologue. After a short 90minutes I feel gipped. No question will that I'll opt for a hard copy in the future.

    "Good book, but hard to listen via audiobook."

    Abridged book so I felt that I wasn't getting the full material packed into an hour. Also required critical thinking and a bit of note taking, so I feel this would be an experience better left to an actual book.

    "Not a New Approach"

    It's a short book to motivate people to think about their goals, be committed to them (not just hope they will happen), take actions, assess the results (to measure the effectiveness of those actions), and adjust their plans until their goals are achieved. There is nothing new about this approach. It's more for people who need a push from someone whom they view as a successful role model get started.

    "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.

    "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

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    This is a book which can evoke huge and lasting change in your life. Depending on how much effort you are willing to devote to this programme, you can turn your whole life around....or you could dismiss it as "another useless self help book".

    "He never ever disappoints!!!"

    There is no one better than Tony Robbins. Others try but why have a substitute when you can have the real thing. He raises the bar but shows you effectively and "easily" how to clear it - as long as you do the work. As usual thank you-thank you- thank you for being there when I needed a swift kick up the backside :)

    "A must listen to audio book"

    I was recommended this audio book by several people and it is not hard to see why. Tony makes you believe that your dreams CAN come true. all we need to do is believe in ourselves and take massive action. for me this is a 5 star audio book and I will recommend it to other people who wish to get more out of life.
