Not the full book

It would have been nice to know this is an extremely condensed version. I have the physical book and it’s not the same. Feel very ripped off!

Why do I feel half the book is missing.

I own this book, it's 512 pages long. How much did they take out to make it an hour and a half long? Feeling ripped off here.

90-minute condensed version of the book. AMAZING

Why read a 500 page book when you can get a 90-minute summary of the most important parts, narrated by one of the world's greatest motivational speakers?
The reason this is my favorite audiobook is because its narrated by Tony Robbins himself. He is an extremely energetic and persuasive speaker.
Listening to this tape is like attending one of his $5000 seminars but for a mere $15.

It's the type of book you will listen to again and again.

Don't think the book is audiobook is worse because its short. Its actually better. No one wants to listen to a 12 hour audiobook anyway.

Short but Helpful

Tony Robbins is a great motivational speaker without a doubt. This book is helpful in giving a quick motivational boost but there is not much more to it. I'd say you're almost just as well off watching free motivational videos online instead.

Abridged was way too abridged

Too short on substance. I felt cheated. I hope the written product is much better than this was. Not worth buying this audio version.

Too short

What would have made Awaken the Giant Within better?

If this were the entire, unabridged book. This is only equivalent to about 1/3 of the book, which is dense in material. In this audiobook, you get a very short, shallow view of Robbins' coaching methods.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Too short

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

Yes, but only online as videos, which are more apt to be short-form.

Lame. Not the whole book.

Would you try another book from Anthony Robbins and/or Anthony Robbins?

This is a very condensed version, so I'm a bit miffed I spent this much money for a fraction of the book. Also, his voice is grating and very irritating. And it's from the early 90's, so he keeps saying "pause this cassette tape", which I could get past, but overall it's just annoying. The content is OK...though I can think of lots of other better self help books. Try "You are a badass". Much more approachable, less eye-rolling king of stuff.

Would you be willing to try another one of Anthony Robbins’s performances?

Probably not.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Sure. It wasn't a total loss.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Wow.

Literally incredible.

I am sure it works. I am sure.

I would have loved a bit more of his own steps through his personal story but at least its short and sharp.

I am starting NOW.
