5.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh review, almost 7 years later! November 29, 2004
Hi all, I originally wrote a review for this book back in 1998.

See 'Easy and exciting to read, with amazing results., January 11, 1998

Reviewer: A reader'

That was me! At that time I was back in the UK and finishing up in University. In my original review, I emphasised how easy it is to apply the lessons that Mr. Robbins suggests in this book. Having recently reviewed the posts near to mine, I noticed something very interesting. Very few posts have been marked as 'helpful' where the post is giving the book a positive review. But WOW! Look at all the 'helpful' agreements for all those that have something negative to say about it!!

Those people who say nothing good about it, obviously haven't applied the everyday principles to their lives, to help themselves. Now, I'm not suggesting that one should solely rely on just this book for all their advice. Indeed, one should seek confirmation from other sources if needed. But, since reading the book, almost 8 years ago; and giving the review nearly 7 years ago; I have to tell ya, whenever I've hit bad patches, I've referred to the teachings of Mr. Robbins and put myself back on track!!

Almost 15 years ago I lost everything I had to my then partner. She took the lot, including our daughter, whom she later gave up for adoption. To this day I have never been able to trace her. (Lots of reasons stand in the way). I tried for several years to get over the depression, even seeking counselling from therapists. Nothing worked. I realised, only I know ME like ME! Mr. Robbin's book helped me understand areas of my life that were in a mess. It helped me to sort them out. In essence, what it did was help me discover myself and my OWN learning processes of success in ALL areas. Including beating severe depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book unleashed the Giant within me! June 12, 1999
By A Customer
I first saw Tony Robbins on the Joan Rivers show back in 1993. I was very impressed by his charisma and energy, but like many others, felt that Tony Robbins was just a salesman trying to dupe the naive into buying his books and then all of the other products, seminars etc. At work, I ran into a friend who was radiant (unusual for her) and unusually bubbly She told me some of the changes in her life that were taking place and she had begun to read this book: "Awaken the Giant" What really impressed me were the changes that started taking place in the days and weeks that folowed. She started to lose weight, was participating more in meetings at work, and then got promoted. I was impressed. So I decided that this must work. I went out and bought Awaken the Giant and began to use the techniques such as "the swish pattern" and"scrambling technique" Awaken the Giant is a huge book, but I read it in one week. My job performance improved immediately as did my tennis game. I got immediate and dramatic results. This is not just a "feel good book" the techniques really work. My girlfriend also recommended that I read "More Wealth without Risk" by Charles Givens. She told me that More Wealth without Risk did as much for her on a Financial Level than Awaken the Giant did on a personal development level. I went out and read that book and I got equally dramatic results from a financial perspective. I highly recommend both books to anyone who wants to dramatically change their lives...and quickly!

4.0 out of 5 stars an exceptional guide but ... January 10, 2000
By A Customer
I would have given this book 5 out of 5 but I believe nothing compares to seeing the man in person. In October '99 I attended one of Anthony Robbins' seminars, albeit reluctantly dragged to it by my boyfriend (I too was a cynic). Two years before that I had attempted suicide, been admitted to several psychiatric hospitals and was on a huge amount of medication for a 'mental disorder' as well as various painful physical ailments. I was addicted to sleeping pills, was unemployed, overweight, depressed and often violent. Anthony Robbins' seminar inspired me enough to test out the merit of his claims by quitting smoking and no longer taking medications and I embarked on the vegan diet he suggested. Within a week I was feeling wonderful and decided to improve other areas of my life. Reading 'Awaken' has given me new insights into how I can improve and it is great as a handbook to remind you of how you can be at your best - but by all means GO to one of his seminars. Be sceptical, but also be eclectic and use to information he gives - if you want happiness enough, you can have it! This book is an excellent distillation of ideas. Start with the physical and go from there if you need proof that his ideas work. Anyone who believes they can perform at their best while eating animal products is kidding themselves - become vegan and you will understand how energetic, vital and balanced you can really feel. I have been totally vegan for 4 months and I lost 25kg effortlesly and now maintain a stable weight of 57kg. Everyone is amazed at how wonderful I look. Also, I practice the breathing techniques every day and use his simple NLP techniques to control my anger. Anthony Robbins is a fantastic guide.There is always room for improvement. It works - just give it a try!

More About the Author

For more than 30 years Tony Robbins' passion has been helping people BREAK THROUGH and take their lives to another level--no matter how successful they already are--in the areas that matter most: their business, personal finance, intimate relationships, careers and health.

Tony Robbins has helped more than 50 million people from more than 100 countries transform their lives and their businesses through his books, audio programs, health products, live events and personal coaching. He's been fortunate enough to work with everyone from presidents of countries to some of the true legends of entertainment, sports and the business world. But his work is not limited to Fortune 500 CEOs and athletes. He has a special passion for small-business owners, parents and students.

Being the Chairman of seven privately held companies and five holding companies in diverse industries keeps him busy. Many of his companies have become brands that are leaders in their category--from the award winning Namale Resort & Spa in the Fiji Islands, to Twinlab and Metabolife in the sports nutrition field, to the Anthony Robbins brand in personal and professional improvement.

Most of Tony's core strategies for creating breakthroughs have come from his work with some of the biggest names in the business world: He's had the privilege of modeling and distilling the strategies of leaders in some of the fastest-growing companies in the world. He's used these distinctions to help optimize and grow enterprises to new and more profitable levels.

One of the things Tony is most proud of is his humanitarian work through the non-profit Anthony Robbins Foundation. He's always believed that if we're blessed enough to have insight and economic opportunities, then we're also blessed enough to be able to give back. To those who much has been given, much is expected. Tony Robbins is extremely blessed to be able to feed more than two million people in 56 countries every year through his International Basket Brigade.
