I'm always reading six or seven books simultaneously and dipping in and out of them. So, in the last couple of weeks I've been reading everything from Louise Richardson's What Terrorists Want: Understanding the Enemy, Containing the Threat, to Integral Spirituality: A Startling New Role for Religion in the Modern and Postmodern World by Ken Wilbur. I am rereading, for the second time, The Singularity Is Near by Ray Kurzweil. I am in the midst of A Life Decoded: My Genome: My Life by J. Craig Venter, whom I had the privilege of meeting recently.

Why should you listen to him?
Anthony Robbins (Tony Robbins) is a best selling self help author, motivational speaker, and advisor to many world leaders, sports professionals and business people. He is an internationally recognized personality and has appeared on countless infomercials, television interviews, talk shows, radio programs, and has even appeared as himself in the romantic comedy "Shallow Hal" starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Jack Black.
Tony Robbins was born on the 29th of February 1960 (leap year), California, USA. He became determined to change his life after a particularly low period in his life where he was struggling to pay his bills, over weight and without direction.
Robbins transformed his life and developed systems to change the lives of thousands more. Neuro-linguistic programming or NLP became an integral part of Robbins' current philosophy and teachings. His popular motivational technique "neuroassociative conditioning" was developed from the teachings of NLP.
Anthony Robbins has created an almost fanatical group of followers worldwide with people prepared to pay thousands of dollars to attend his motivational seminars and workshops, but he also has his critics. One area critics talk of is his firewalking workshops where participants are encouraged to walk barefooted across hot coals. Critics say it is simple logic and not the power of the mind that gets people across the coals without burning their feet.
Robbins is also an active and generous philanthropist. The "Anthony Robbins Foundation" had its beginnings in Robbins giving out bags of groceries anonymously to impoverished families at Thanks Giving each year. The organization now feeds more than 500,000 people each year worldwide during Thanksgiving, Easter and December holidays. Inspiration, education and training are also delivered to disadvantaged people in society.
