    I heard Tony Robbins when I was in real estate many years ago. While in Fla. decided to hear him again, DISAPPOINTING !! to say the least. Yes, he can give you energy, but when he made comments with foul language that was all it took for me. I walked out and will never again want to hear anything he has to say.
