I tried reading it a few months was a bore and seemed to be very self-promoting (no surprise for Tony). Most of the information he spoke about can be found in shorter (more concise) financial planning books.

As with Dave Ramsey, Tony Robbins has some good advice for the clueless, but there’s not a lot of cluelessness on this Board. I’d even venture to say that financial advisors raking off 1.5% can be a good thing for someone who might otherwise be jumping into markets at the top and selling at the bottom. (Let me tell you about my friend whose husband the doctor was buying on margin and didn’t tell her till half their retirement savings disappeared in the dotcom bust. I’m sure she would have given up 1.5% a year to avoid that insanity.)

We have one of those motivational, “Take charge of your own life, Live Your Dreams, Do what You’re Passionate About…” conferences in our area every year. Tony Robbins is usually one of the featured speakers, along with similar people who get the crowd fired up and then release them to an exhibition hall full of people waiting to sell them on franchises, house flipping and other business opportunities. Now that I’m retired, I wonder about going to one just for its amusement value.

Tony Robbins

I actually read the book and thought it was very good.Tony is smart because he gets advice from people smarter than him- in the book he interviewed Icahn, Dalio, Bogle,Swensen,Pickens, Schwab , Templeton,and others. These investors know more than I do, and they certainly know more than people who criticize a book without reading it.Robbins grew up poor and pulled himself up by his own bootstraps, and he tries to surround himself with successful people.Read the book because you may learn something.
