This book is a distillation of what I have learned in all those books, CD's and in all those courses. The best part is that this book is a simple step by step guide for transforming your entire life. And it's about 100 pages, so it's a quick read that you will keep coming back to after you have put into practice what you learned. Because once you actually take "Massive Action" as Tony recommends, you will have a deeper understanding of what he writes about and you will get even more out of the second, third, fourth etc. reading.
So, if you are already a Tony Robbins fan, get the book. It's a quick and easy refresher for what you have learned. If you don't know much about Tony Robbins, it's a good introduction and then do as he suggests in it take "Massive Action" and get some of his other books and go to his seminars. "Unleash the Power Within" is the introductory seminar.
Tony tells you in his books and seminars that when you put into practice what he teaches, "Life will never be the same". I can fully attest to that. I am living the life of my dreams. Tony ROCKS!---Harry
I bought my first self-help book forty-eight years ago, when I was still in grade school. In college I first minored in philosophy, and then in psychology. I've read everything from classic self-help psych books to the most outrageous metaphysical self-improvement techniques. Oh, I've read and tried it all.
I discovered Tony Robbins over twenty years ago, and really liked him. He seemed practical and made sense. After going through the Personal Power tape set three times, I lost track of Tony and got involved in other techniques. Last month I stumbled across his latest -- The Edge. While waiting for the CD set to be delivered, I read this book.
It's terrific. "Notes From A Friend" is the Cliff's Notes of Tony Robbins' philosophy, and is presented with his contageous enthusiam. It's a quick read (about an hour), but is packed with good advice and humor.
Of all I've devoured over the past forty-some years, Tony Robbins' material and the Life 101 series (now out of print) are simply the best. Like wise old friends.
I wish this book would be reprinted without the cartoons (except for the charlie brown comic which has an important message).
In any case, Tony is an extraordinary person. He originally wrote this short book as a free gift to include with every Thanksgiving basket his foundation delivers each year, as a quick summary of Awaken The Giant, so more people would read it and benefit from its messages. The book became so well liked it was made available for sale.

It's a fairly thin book, but all the things in it are powerfully described, yet simple ideas and very very thought provoking.
It deals with how to approach difficulties in life, your own outlook, how you currently self talk and how to self talk, how you come across to others visually/physically, how to think with the right mindset, how to deal with difficulties along the way and gives many examples of real life people and how they succeeded, including the authors own life situation.
This is a superb book, very very inspiring. I definitely recommend it. It's a very empowering book if you have the right approach to the information and tips Antony Robbins gives the reader.
I found this book so useful I have since bought 3 more copies for other friends who could benefit from a copy.
I read a couple of pages a day, was great to read as was not a marathon read so not to daunting trying to reach the end.
You can finish this book within a day with ease, make new commitments to yourself, new action plans, new ideas.. in a nut shell.. have a NEW life all within a day after reading this book..
I am a huge fan of tony before this book.. would recommend it to ANYONE.. whether you are new to his material or not.
YOu know when you want to help but for want of a better phrase 'it all seems a bit gay'.
Passing this to someone you can put it under the heading 'its for motivation' not because 'I can see you are on the edge of a breakdown and I don;t know what to say'.
If you see someone that needs a book on Life , or you need some pointers yourself., Get this.
Short and to the point ....unlike this review.
