"The Trousers of Reality goes far beyond NLP and IT. It is visionary and fresh and new. It is for everyone who wants to set themselves free from the constrained thinking of tribalism and labels. It is a creative use of NLP in the teaching of IT methodologies, planning and problem solving. Furthermore, all of these disciplines have meta principles which converge with each other and with life. Discovering these meta principles is like finding the marrow of life. Learning anything throws new light on everything else. We all need this book. Read it, listen to it, let it speak to you. It can change your life for the better." Wyatt Woodsmall PH.D.
