"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
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.

The first part of the book about NLP I found really easy to understand but really complicated to apply successfully, but once I managed to make it work it has been amazing: it condition myself successfully out of stress, and also out of eating some unhealthy foods
The second part about life planning was insane: Made me sit down and get a really solid life plan. In 2 months I lost over 15 pounds, have been consistent in the gym, eating healthy, made new social circles and meaningful relationships, and a lot of things to come in the next 10 yeears
I was wrong.
Sure, there are stories in here you can skim over when you are tired and still get the gist of the book. But much of the value of this book and the good self help out there is to put into words and reinforce things you already kind of knew, but needed to have said to you. NLP seems kitschy at first but has some usefulness. Modeling seems intuitive but so few people do it. Knowing you actually need to act is something many people say they understand, but very few actually carry out.
I picked up this book during a particularly tumultuous month in my life and am glad I did so. It was one of the little reminders I needed that some people have life happen to them and some people happen to life. I would recommend picking this book up.
Anyway - classic, great book. Rather disappointing print edition
Give it a try and you won't be disappointed at all, this is the single best book I've ever read and it's certainly a handbook in a daily basis.
That being said, it is still a good product.

However there possibly lies one of my reservations of bestowing unreserved praise on Unlimited Power: The New Science of Personal Achievement (1984), for as far as I can tell, it is one of the first Self-improvement books to market NLP to a much broader audience and as such could rightly be entitled ‘NLP Unlimited’ such is the wholesale plundering of the Master Practitioner syllabus. Greatness surely demands originality which did leave me rather wandering what is it Tony actually bring to the Self-help party?
There is is no doubting his eloquence in languaging - he weaves his charm with some of the most poignant personal anecdotes of NLP application I have ever read reflecting in most his open kind heartedness, intuitive awareness and above all infectious humanity - with a personal magnetism that comes across as less academic than the original NLP founders. There are areas where he shares his life wisdom as if you happened to meet him down the pub, such as his keys to wealth, health and happiness: resource management in learning how to handle frustration, rejection, financial pressure, complacency, purpose, and discipline, including his philosophies of “two quarters” (abundance) and staying away from “coffee-spot seminars” There is also a fairly enlightening section on alternative nutrition (a.k.a. energy and physical vitality) which came as a surprise is still as relevant today as it was in 1984 - which either shows how ahead of the curve Tony was back then, or the continuing sloth-like pace of cultural change in this area!
Essentially then Unlimited Power is about one thing - it practices what it preaches. As a master of communication in dealing with the challenges that life gives him we are in fact modelling the communication process on Tony in a way that causes us to successfully change things “in not taking the adversities of life as limitations by bridging gaps, building new paths, sharing new visions etc.” For those new to NLP this is as much of an action packed introductory approach I think you could possibly hope to wish for, and..ha ha.. any resistance would be futile to the Robbins battery of flexible communication methods.
Does this book still kick derrière 35 years on? You bet - getting the wallet out for a fire-walk experience might be a next smart move...lol.
