Everything in the Life Force book is referenced, totaling 354 references. I definitely recommend reading Life Force by Tony Robbins or listening to the audiobook. Although he does have some biased opinions due to his investments in several companies that he mentions in the book, he does do a good job of disclosing these conflicts of interest. As always, you should discuss your interests to implement any intervention to your health with your primary health care physician.
