Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It's in stark contrast when Tony's voice suddenly changed to Jeremy Bobb's. Jeremy's voice pales in comparison when compared to Tony's in terms of energy, motivation, and congruence. Jeremy's voice just lacks heart and soul. Sadly, Tony only narrated the first and last chapter of this audio book. It's hugely disappointing. I would have given 5 stars if the whole audio book had been narrated by Tony.

Any additional comments?
I was really looking forward to this audio book since Tony Robbin's book, Awaken the Giant Within is probably my favorite book of all time. This book is now my worst book of all time.
The problems I had with this book are:
#1 Tony Robbins only narrates 2 chapters in the book, and the other narrator is not very good. The last chapter which is about an hour long is Tony Robbins asking the reader to donate to his charity, which is nice but not what I wanted to pay for and listen to for one hour.
#2 Too Long. The book is over 20 hours long and it seemed the first 9 hours were devoted to 401K plans which bored me senseless. The remaining 11 hours were better, but far from interesting.
#3 I do not trust the stock market which the majority of the book is about. Of the approximate 10 millionaires I know personally, all of them made their money in Real Estate or in owning their own small business and 0 from stocks. All of the people I know as well as myself who have invested in stocks have lost money.
#4 Mr. Robbins says not to trust a lot of Stock Brokers and Mutual fund information due to the fact that the information they provide can be manipulated, but than uses the same type of manipulations to prove that his techniques would provide greater profits and zero losses. It also seems that he may be, or will become an investment partner and profit in some of the investments he is pushing. There is a long disclaimer at the end of the book that should be a warning to all.
I sincerely doubt a large number of the 5 star reviewers that this book has received actually read or listened to the book.
