Oprah's power is just astonishing. Not even Tony Robbins can get his followers to read new books and make them into overnight best sellers. Guess what's #1 on the Amazon best sellers list right now? "A Million Little Pieces", with "Oprah's Book Club" in parenthesis. Oh brother!! Churches don't even have this kind of power. I don't follow her

Cosmo, Interesting posts! I find it amazing that a guy as smart as Tony didn't make back up copies of journals, photos and other personal materials. Truely, what was he thinking? Making copies of irreplacable objects is common sense 101. Should he be teaching this in his seminars?

I think there are several factors at work: -A cynical and fearful society. Fear in the media is simply out of control. It wasn't like this 20 or 30 years ago. More channels and more competition mean stories are repeated endlessly now days. Fear of school shootings, airplane crashes, terrorism, crime, robbery. Yet in actual numbers, most crime is way down. The reporting doesn't match

Coz, Have you seen the book, SHAM (How the Self Help Movement made America helpless)? There's a chapter on Robbins and all of his ups and downs (Q Link, Dreamlife, juicy stuff, lol). There's also a part about the Robbins message board! The author briefly wrote about the moderators deleting some controversial threads and "cleaning" up other unwanted posts. LOL. You sho

Is Oprah more dangerous than Tom Cruise? She's got the kind of influence that even Tony Robbins would take notice of. She can make obscure books into overnight best sellers. She can reshape the minds of millions and millions of people around the world through "self empowerment", etc. What if she was running seminars instead of a talk show? Is there really much of a difference

Coz, In a strange way, there's actually some benefit from seeing the darkside of Robbins & Co. You'll be much more aware and perceptive to potential cons, frauds, and charlatans. No one can beat Tonys techniques. Dealing with the average salesman becomes laughably easy. Robbins himself said that 'commitment is the basis of influence". I've become alot more a

Cosmo, Yes, I'm having an outstanding day!! It's one of my musts ;) Actually, I found this board after searching for "tony robbins cult" on the net. I knew what some of the characteristics were (charismatic leader, us vs them, the long list that you mentioned), but I wondered what other stories were out there. You certainly weren't going to read about it on the Robb

I'm a former Tony Robbins "fan" and I have alot of mixed feelings about his products, techniques, methods and seminars. I don't know anymore about this guy! On the one hand, his products are better that alot of other things we're exposed to as a society (alcohol, smoking, drugs, casual sex, a heavily biased media that creates false fears in people, and an otherwise laz
