Great Intro to NLP,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NLP: The New Technology of Achievement (Paperback)
This book is a great introduction to the world of Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP. It not only includes a primer to bring you up to speed on what NLP is, but explains some of the more advanced techniques and methods of programming. About the only downside of this book is the fact that exercises appear in the middle of most chapters, which tends to cut into the "flow" of reading. Still, the exercises appear in a quite logical sequence, and you get used to it after the first few chapters.
Despite its choppy presentation, the book is extremely readable, entertaining and leaves one with a strong understanding of the fundamentls of NLP itself. For those of you who are new to NLP, this is definitely the first book that I would read.

Before you dive into NLP, you should know that it is widely considered to be pseudopsychology (meaning its claims have not been scientifically verified, and are not part of mainstream psychology). Read more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NLP_and_scie

we need to acknowledge ONLY those therapeutic approaches which have the stamp of approval from acknowledge professionals and organizations - regardless of utility and efficacy !

William Van Hefner says:
I would agree, were there any established way to separate the experts from the crackpots. Unfortunately, science as a whole has many real and self-proclaimed experts who disagree on very fundamental issues. What is accepted science theory today could easily be debunked as quackery if new evidence comes to light that disproves these theories. It's a sad fact that the science community in general is extremely political. Those who don't suck up to the establishment often have their works dismissed, no matter how complete the research. I'd like to think that the science community will eventually move past this popularity contest style of accepting new theories, but it's been playing the same political games for literally hundreds of years now.
