"Robbins is a persuasive communicator who spends more linage on step-by-step details of his recommendations than in self-boosterism. This approach could attract considerable readership from dedicated self-helpers." -- Kirkus Reviews
"He comes across as a dedicated, idealistic, and brilliant young man; it is impossible to read his book without absorbing some of his dynamic enthusiasm." -- Magill Book Reviews
About the Author
Anthony Robbins has devoted more than half his life to helping people discover and develop their own unique qualities of greatness. Considered the nation's leader in the science of peak performance, he is the founder and chairman of the Anthony Robbins Companies, which are committed to assisting people in achieving personal and professional mastery.Robbins has served as a peak performance consultant for the executives of such organizations as IBM, AT&T, American Express, McDonnell-Douglas, and the United States Army, as well as professional sports teams such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Los Angeles Kings, the America America's Cup team, and gold medal-winning Olympic athletes. Robbins also provides ongoing coaching and consulting to a number of prominent world figures and is the primary advisor in the re-engineering efforts of several organizations and communities.
Robbins' special passion is to make the world a better place to live by assisting individuals in captaining their destinies -- whether that means fostering their relationships with their families, directing their focus to achieve their goals, relieving emotional or financial distress, or making profound contributions to their communities and country. Throughout the years he has unselfishly given his energy and resources to those in need, and in 1991 he formed a nonprofit foundation to aid underprivileged children, homeless individuals, senior citizens, and the prison population.

Book is most laid back on some useless methods they call NLP which never really worked on me because I'm not a computer. There's also a goal setting method on the book which is taking a thousand useless steps - he tried to be Napoleon Hill and failed miserably when it comes to success area.
Robbins has no success in his life except selling material rehashed from others. He just change the terms. I saw a recent video that he is talking about "morning rituals" with his 2 car garage sized margarine filled mouth (I'm sure he's against eating butter). That's the same exact advice given by great teachers over the history - its all about reading, focusing, meditating about your goals, having a healthy breakfast and/or doing some exercise. He took it, renamed it and using it - just like every material he's representing. The problem here is, he's doing it wrong - because he's misleading the reader.
How this big and wonderfully overblown book ruined my health?: Robbins preaches about stop drinking water(!), do breathing exercises, stop eating meat, stop drinking milk etc. I don't think these even valid today because on other books based on recent researches recommending the opposite - like fresh chicken or fish with salad, lots of water etc. Robbins talks about having salad with meat also, but later he recommends stop eating meat products. Some people might be ok with that - I'm totally ok too.
But here comes the tricky part: If you are not doing any of these Robbins stuff under the control of a doctor with medical advice, you can loose your health. Not drinking a lot of water can be the most dangerous advice you could ever have.
Breathing Exercise: Robbins advocates deep breath exercise. Here's how it created a terrible rash on my throat; I took his advice and start walking every day - here in Istanbul, weather is usually very cold. But you know the no pain no gain philosophy (which lead thousands of people in GYMs to serious and permanent injuries) which is a great part of Robbins material. So against the cold air, I walked everyday and do breathing exercises. Even my throat burns like hell, I kept doing it. Right now I'm sick for almost a week. I have a terrible rash on my throat and gulping hurts like there's a knife left in there. I got out of the bed just to write this review and will go back to it later.
True breathing exercise is a part of meditation which aims nothing but relaxing. If there is PAIN just let it go what you are doing. There's no gain from the pain - that bigot and ignorant mentality ruined more lives than known.
How this wonderful peace of crap can be useful for you?: Do the exact opposite of what he says.
I decided after I healed, I'll start drinking milk and keep drinking lots of water. And I only do breathing exercise during my meditations just for relaxing and balancing. And this book will take its well deserved place in my trash can.
If you want to learn a LOT of incorrect information in thousands of useless pages and ruin every area of life, this book is just for you. Try and see it yourself.
In short, you get ready for a long-term failure.
When my fiance first told me of Anthony Robbins, I was suspicious but curious. When I SAW this man's picture, I was shocked: oh dear, he looks fake and in pain! I would NOT want to meet this person. I would NOT want me or my fiance to read his books.
This man's books deluded my fiance through one of the worst crises of his life, and he kept believing that not only will he recover like Mr Anthony Robbins, but that he would gain some supreme power. On top of that, he joined a millionnaire's aspirant club on Robbin's website. I would like to know how many persons from that club became millionnaires in a year? My fiance hardly bailed himself out of debt that he accrued in those times when he most believed he had unlimited power. (I also discovered that he got involved in Internet lottery/ gambling.)
I have no personal vendetta with this man Robbins, but I have an aim to disclose the fraud he is. I read Unlimited Power, gifted to me by my THEN fiance (yes!). And I could see where this would lead any believer of this twisted, incoherent system.
I kept my faith strong in my fiance during his hard times of financial and emotional crisis and only made the merest suggestion that these kinds of books are delusionary and feed on general human weaknesses. He slowly learnt to believe in himself, and even admitted that Mr Robbins' success is only thanks to the sale of his books and seminars to the naive.
Ah but the glitzy promises of power and what-not of this man worked. Human are lazy and greedy, and after getting a new job, and having better prospects of marriage, my THEN fiance fell back into the trap of achievement and power...
Today, my ex-fiance is alone and miserable because he chose to let go of one sound job, dislikes his new job (several times better than the previou), and let go of his relationships. That includes me, his parents, and his sincerest friends.
Our relationship is over, not only because of reconcilable normal personal differences, but because he on the one hand believes his past and future are messed and on the other harbors 3 different delusions about success.
God bless him. Please burn your copy of Anthony Robbins.
