Unlimited Power: A Black Choice

Anthony Robbins, Author, Joseph McClendon III, With Simon & Schuster $24 (425p) ISBN 978-0-684-82436-9
Robbins's previous books (Giant Steps, etc.), along with his Personal Power audiotape series and seminars, have kept him at the forefront of the personal improvement industry for the past decade. Here, Robbins, who is white, adapts his book Unlimited Power (1984) for African Americans, who have mostly ignored his work. Although Robbins's name appears on this volume, the voice on nearly every page is that of his colleague, McClendon, head trainer of Robbins Research International, Inc., who is black and the owner of his own company, Succeleration Research Group. In a relentlessly positive and encouraging tone, he uses his own personal experiences and many examples of famous African Americans to explain Robbins's theories. Behavior modification exercises for achieving personal, career and financial success are included as well. The information here is universally appealing and applicable, but people of color accustomed to receiving information that is supposedly meant for everyone, and yet is presented only by whites using only whites as examples, will find this book a refreshing change. According to Robbins's own theory, however, readers will have to be ""visual strategists"" to make it through this lengthy volume; audiotapes and seminars-for those who are more ""auditory"" or ""kinesthetic""-are sure to follow. 75,000 first printing.
