5.0 out of 5 stars Tony Makes It Look Easy, February 6, 2014
This review is from: The Big Picture: 11 Laws That Will Change Your Life (Kindle Edition)
Tony Horton is the master of breaking things down into simple, actionable pieces. That's why P90X and all of his subsequent workout programs were so successful. He's not telling us anything we don't already know intellectually but, rather, he's telling it to us in a way that it can suddenly click and be turned into action. What I liked best about this book are the personal anecdotes of his life growing up and as a young man in LA prior to making it big as a personal trainer to the stars. Tony didn't just spring from the mold a chiseled, successful millionaire. He stumbled and bumbled and wandered down dead ends, too. Heck, he even worked as a street mime to pay the bills. But he was persistent and committed. I think that's why so many million people find him so inspiring. He's one of us, showing us what it means to do your best and forget the rest.

I think the biggest audience of this book will be the people who have already come to like TH through his workout programs. His written voice is identical to the self-effacing, irreverent tone of his patter in the P90X videos.
