Simon & Schuster
Adult Non-Fiction

Tony Robbins has coached and inspired more than 50 million people from over 100 countries. More than 4 million people have attended his live events. Oprah Winfrey calls him “super-human.” Now for the first time—in his first book in two decades—he’s turned to the topic that vexes us all: How to secure financial freedom for ourselves and our families

Robbins has a brilliant way of using metaphor and story to illustrate even the most complex financial concepts—making them simple and actionable. With expert advice on our most important financial decisions, Robbins is an advocate for the reader, dispelling the myths that often rob people of their financial dreams

Tony Robbins walks readers of every income level through the steps to become financially free by creating a lifetime income plan. This book delivers invaluable information and essential practices for getting your financial house in order

MONEY Master the Game is the book millions of people have been waiting for.


I have never read a Tony Robbins book before, nor viewed any of his self-help videos. I have heard of him and know a little of the influence he has over so many people. I picked up this book at my book store not because it was written by him, per se, but because I happened to be looking for a book that could help me plan for my financial future.

MONEY: MASTER THE GAME is a tome. That's because Tony does what, apparently, Tony does best. He talks. A lot. He tells a lot of stories. Gives a lot of background. Explains everything--in detail. Normally, I don't read self-help books, especially books about money or business. But when I dove into chapter one, I had a feeling that somewhere buried beneath all the excess words, Tony had something important to say. So I stuck with it. Took me a couple of months to get through the whole thing, but I really did glean some very helpful and important keys to building a secure financial future. I think, realistically, it could have been distilled into a fifty page booklet, but then Tony couldn't have charged $28.00 a copy for his efforts.

So, the bottom line -- is it worth buying and reading the book? Absolutely. In fact, I think it's a must. In a nutshell, Tony reveals some very simple investing secrets previously only enjoyed by the very rich but which are now, thanks to Tony, are available to everyone no matter how much or little you have to invest.

I will be honest, even with a Masters Degree in English, I had a tough time understanding everything. Perhaps if my degree was in fiance or economics, I would have grasped a little more than I did. But most of it is accessible, and even if you take away two or three of the tips he offers, you'll be ahead of the game.

It's a book I will probably refer to over and over again for years to come.
