Tony is great but this is very much for the American financial market. Always good to read Tony's books for the positive aspect but don't bother expecting too much if you're UK based in terms of the financial guidance.
I’m sure it’s a great book but it arrived with a back cover ripped, the corners scuffed and the pages dog eared. I don’t think it’s a new book. The vendor is arranging an exchange but I don’t think having to go through the rigmarole of arranging collection because of the vendors failings is really my job.
So glad I got this as a free trial and didn't actually part cash. I expected Tony's awesome self help wisdom, instead get some guy talking about the stock market etc. Absolute zero interest to me, and I'd be very disappointed if a I'd paid to purchase this, as it's not what one would expect if they seek a Tony Robbins title. I should have read the description first, but I followed a link on YouTube and assumed that the other chapters would have been the same as what I was listening to.
Robbins knows next to nothing about economics. A crash doesnt happen every year,as he suggests. His book marks a classic piece of Robbins repositioning,as cynical as any other. Right up to the actual crash in 2008 he was still instructing his followers to put everything they had(or could borrow) into the most exposed parts of the economy; the property markets and the financial services sector. Yeah, great advice that was. But there was no apology from him. Instead he imitated the political right in blaming public sector debt for the crisis, rather than the real cause. The right was also claiming that enormous public spending cuts were now necessary,and employing debt scaremongering to persuade the public to this point of view. Robbins imitated this as he repositioned himself as a debt doom and gloom monger, offering his followers the promise of protection from either a Greece-style debt crisis(should the government not make deep cuts) ,or from the supposedly necessary years and years of deep austerity to come as America paid back its historic debt. Happily, Obama ignored the advice from the right and neither of these pessimistic outcomes came true. And ,as a result of policies that Robbins was totally against ,we have a stable-looking economy. So Robbins has once again repositioned himself to reflect that.
