    Usually I find these US style personal improvement ideas at best irritating and at worst utter drivel, however this book has perhaps changed my perceptions. The book itself offers numerous techniques for doingjust as the title says, Awaken the giant within, and the techniques seem to work for me, and I suspect would work for others. Tony Robbins writing style is easy and straightforward and for the most part doesn’t take it too seriously, with some notiable exceptions. I would certainly recommend the book although you should note that it in part reads like Robbins is name dropping as much as he can and in others feels like those tacky shopping channel infomercials for Robbins other ‘products’. If you can ignore these elements, get reading and see whether that giant can get up from its slumber.

    This review is from: Awaken the Giant within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Physical and Emotional Self (Paperback)

    Every once and awhile I get on and see what they are saying about Robbins. I must tell you, I am surprised to see so much negativity. But then you have to step back and ask why? I would have to say that most of the negative reviews where because people thought they where going to purchase a book and open it up, then the next morning they would be rich and happy. As ridiculous as it may sound, that is really what they believed deep within themselves. I will tell you that this was the first book I purchased of Robbins. I APPLIED the material to my life and went from a depressed kid that worked in a restaurant to a happy person that now makes six digits trading stock, as my father would say, “not bad for a twenty-two year old”. Did Robbins do this, no I did. Robbins did teach me how to apply my attitude and skills to master my financial, physical, time, emotional and relationship skills. If you are looking for a simple, easy, no effort needed, way to change your life, then this is not the book. If you are looking to take your life to another level and are tired of being confused on how to do it, then this is the book. By the way, someone said that he charges a lot for his seminars and that is how he makes money. This is true, but he is the only one that I know that gives a 100%, no questions asked, money back guarantee on everything he sells. So, obviously what he gets for his seminars must be worth it, or he would be out of business by now. Best of luck, Dave

    Self-improvement of ASTOUNDING quality and quantity, 14 July 2001
    By A Customer

    An absolutely incredible quantity and quality of self-improvement strategies are packed into this inspirational book! Robbins’ intensity and commitment almost physically jump out at the reader, urging you to wake up, take control and massively improve the quality of your life and those around you. I bought this 5 or 6 years ago and continue to dip into it every so often to shake myself up a bit. Just about every page contains an immediately applicable suggestion or strategy for changing your life for the better.

    Is it all as straightforward as he describes? My view would be yes… and no! Sometimes no amount of focusing and mind control can change some of our deep-rooted patterns? But this book is still brilliant. Many of the ideas here have improved my life.

    Some of the ideas and techniques are very simple, some far more complicated. The concentrated power of the writing is sustained throughout as Robbins continuously emphasizes the need to commit to lasting change. Early on he suggests the importance of decisions – your decisions about what to focus on, your decisions about what things mean to you, and your decisions about what to do to create the results you desire. He distinguishes between being those who are interested in personal change and those who actually commit to making things happen.

    Raise your standards, change your limiting beliefs, change your strategy. Ask yourself empowering questions such as “what is great about this problem?” or “what am I excited about in my life right now?”. There is a brilliant chapter on “transformational vocabulary” in which the author suggests that merely by changing the words we regularly use we can profoundly change our reality. As with many of the suggestions in this book, I have tried this and it works, especially if you keep working at it.
