5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful, Informed and Incredibly Inspiring, 9 Dec. 2008
In a "Personal Development" market overwhelmed with gimmicky products and superficial "life coaches" who care only about parting you with your money, Tony Robbins is one of the few real deals and for me this is his best work.

"Awaken the Giant Within" is incredibly insightful and is written in such a way that you're left with the feeling that Tony somehow knows you better than you know yourself (which is arguably true). Almost every chapter provides another invaluable, consciousness raising insight into how you think and behave and how you can take control of the events in your life to shape your future.

Every chapter leaves you feeling incredibly empowered and inspired. A MUST READ for everyone quite frankly, but in particular those with an interest in taking control of their lives and their future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to social and environmental issues, 9 Dec. 2008
This book is not a step by step guide to social innovation, nor does it detail in-depth solutions to the social and environmental challenges we face this century. It is instead an holistic look at how seemingly unrelated social and environmental challenges are inextricably linked and provides a fascinating overview to a number of simple yet potentially very effective solutions. In doing so, not only will it significantly raise your personal awareness of the challenges we face, but it also leaves you feeling both inspired and hopeful.

If you are looking for an informed, fascinating and inspiring introduction into the worlds of social and environmental innovation, then I'm sure that like me, you will thoroughly enjoy "The Meaning of the 21st Century".

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and to the point, 22 Jan. 2008
If you believe that the bible is neither historical fact nor a suitable moral compass for the development of humankind but have been unable to confidently express this in a debate with a 'believer' then "Letter to a Christian Nation" will suitably arm you with all the logic, reason and scripture to make your case.

It's a very short book, easily read in an evening, but is very much to the point. It applies the same reasonable scrutiny to religion as we are encouraged to apply to all other areas of science and anthropology, no more and no less. The result is a balanced, unbiased yet very conclusive argument against the existence of a biblical God, highlighting the very real dangers of religion and 'blind faith' and providing a water-tight defense of its conclusions.
