Overall, the Powertalk tape series gives you a tremendous bang for the buck. This isn't true of all TR products on the market. The single topic format is particularly effective because it keeps Tony in a tight groove where he can unload all of his thinking permitted within the running time of the tape.
On this one, Tony will focus on Certainty, a state that can be either/or. Either super empowering or super destructive. I think he should have prepared his material more carefully instead of going full out *ex tempore* when his brilliance at communication does ocassionally drift into ranting.
I think one area of particular concern here is that the tape was made in the mid 1990s when less was known about the AIDS virus. Tony gets a little unhinged on side 2 of the tape when he comes close to suggesting that the HIV virus is not the cause of the AIDS syndrome. At one point he flat out says this.
On the other hand, he gives powerful, inspiring stories of how he refused to give up on a participant at one of his seminars who was stricken with a heart attack and given up for dead by medical professionals. That alone makes this tape worth listening to.
Because of the dubious claim (to put it mildly) that there isn't a conclusive link between HIV and AIDS, which could be reinforcing some of the most wrongheaded beliefs in the high risk segment of the population, I feel that, as excellent and inspiring as this tape is in many areas of its presentation, it should be immediately withdrawn from circulation and reworked based on our present understanding of the HIV virus.
message to Mr. Robbins. Redo the tape. Develop your themes more carefully. Practice once or twice on a run through. Reissue.
