Book Report


In the vast landscape of self-improvement literature, there exists a towering figure, a giant, if you will. That giant is Tony Robbins, and his seminal work, “Awaken The Giant Within,” serves as a beacon, illuminating the path to personal transformation. This report aims to distill the essence of Robbins’ teachings and present them in a way that resonates with those who find themselves in challenging circumstances, such as those of us in prison.

Plot Summary

“Awaken The Giant Within” is not a narrative but a guide, a manual for self-transformation. Robbins posits that we all have a sleeping giant within us, a potential that is waiting to be unleashed. The book is structured around the idea of taking control of your life, starting with your mind, spreading through your body, and then all the way through your relationships, work, and finances. It’s about raising your standards, changing your limiting beliefs, and altering your strategy.


Robbins’ work is a psychological blueprint, a roadmap to waking up and taking control of your life. He emphasizes the power of decision-making, stating that it’s in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped. Robbins encourages us to focus on where we want to go, not on what we fear. This aligns with teachings that I provide in my classes, which often revolve around the idea of embracing change and overcoming fear.

For those of us incarcerated, this message is particularly potent. Robbins’ teachings can serve as a catalyst for change, inspiring individuals to take control of their lives and awaken their inner giants. The principles and strategies outlined in the book can be applied to any situation, regardless of one’s circumstances.


In conclusion, “Awaken The Giant Within” is a powerful tool for personal transformation. Its teachings, when applied, can lead to profound changes in one’s life. For those of us in prison, this book can serve as a beacon of hope, a guide to awakening our inner giants and transforming our lives from the inside out.

Remember, as Robbins says, “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.” So, let’s consistently strive for growth, for change, and for awakening our inner giants. Let’s take control of our destinies and shape our lives into the masterpieces they were meant to be.
