A very good beginners guide to NLP for non (self-styled) NLP-Gurus!,
This review is from: Neuro-linguistic Programming for Dummies (Paperback)
Of all the NLP books I've read (several dozen) this is the clearest and most accessible entry-level guide to NLP.
While I am not going to comment on any other review, I hope I can say that once you've read this book, you'll be able to tell quite a lot about all the reviewers from they way they write, and from what they've written! They really do expose their own metaprograms rather elegantly (read the book to find out how!)
The Dummies style does not suit everyone - it's exciting, captures the attention, it's upfront and full of interesting anecdotes and asides - and as a result, I actually read all of my copy, and dip into it on a regular basis!
The material may extend beyond the boundaries of what may be regarded as "core" NLP - in my book, that's a bonus. The people who are buying this book are not, in my opinion, looking for an academic treatise (there are plenty of those!) rather a practical introduction to a subject that is not within the mainstream of psychology (yet).
Bottom line - if you're looking to expand beyond basic NLP Practitioner knowledge and practice, then you'll find this book fun even if you don't learn anything new. Otherwise, this is the perfect introduction which will lead you on to discover fascinating new worlds of possibility, achievement and fulfilment.
I heard that 50% of all books are put aside after Chapter 1 - this isn't one of them.
