"Reading any other NLP book, you would get perhaps 10 or 15 techniques; there's a very high chance that some or all of these will be repeated in the next book you buy... The Swish pattern, for example, is mentioned in almost every NLP book I read. The Big Book of NLP, however, teaches you 350 techniques! There is no fluff, no fiction, no space fillers - only pure practical guidelines. Get this book, it's the last one you'll need to buy." --Stephan Thieme, author of Persuasion Mastery
"Shlomo is giving us exactly what we asked for - all the good stuff, without the fluff. I can curiously predict, that this outstanding work is going to be an essential, perhaps even mandatory, textbook in any NLP training around the globe. All my students, in the past, present and future, are going to have to get their hands on The Big Book of NLP Techniques." --Deborah Eizenstein, NLP Trainer and Researcher, Tel-Aviv
"This bok is well written and it serves the need of NLP practitioners and students to have a complete practical sourcebook of techniques to work with." --Rasa Galatiltyte, NLP Trainer, Vilinus
"This is by far the most practical manual on neuro linguistic program- ming. It lists hundreds of patterns, methods and advanced concepts. It is definitely the book we were all waiting for, and after 35 years of NLP, it is really about time!" --Nathaniel J. Varna, NLP Master Prac., Italy
"NLP is all about learning how to think of things differently; particularly negative things that drag you down. Buy this book and you own THE sourcebook on how to think differently and change yourself and others effortlessly with NLP. It is now the most useful book in my practice and I give it to all my students." --Isaac Gozlan, NLP Trainer
From the Back Cover
If there was one really useful book on NLP...
...it would be full of NLP patterns!
Everyone who learns Neuro Linguistic Programming knows the power of the patterns and strategies that employ the skills and knowledge of NLP. Whether you have just been introduced to the basics, or you have mastered advanced material and patterns, this work provides you with more than 350 patterns in a concise reference format, with step-by- step instructions.
We have selected each pattern for its value and relevance. If you know the pattern, you can refresh your memory; if you want to learn it, you can do so without wading through any "fluff" such as ridiculously long explanations of NLP terms, or "magical stories" of healing and success. I chose to make this book clean of theories and fiction stories, and packed it with the most practical guidelines and advice.

First and most important - it's down to earth. It's easy to read and understand, no jargon and no space fillers.
I use NLP for my own personal development goals, and occasionally to help out a friend in need. You can imagine, having this "cookbook" of self-help techniques is very helpful.
I am not interested in starting a practice as a practitioner of NLP or a corporate trainer, so I see no good reason in paying 6,500 euro for those weekend training programs.
I only want to "fine tune" myself, to forget a few bad habits and to learn a few new skills faster. In improving myself, I take Tony Robbins' advice:
"We all know that if we flip the switch, the light will go on or off. We don't need to know how the electricity supplies power and how the bulb converts that power into light. Most of us just need to know that it'll work. Don't waste time trying to understand everything, life's too short."
I just wanted to switch on the lights! This book helps me do that, again and again. I do not spend time on theories, I just try out ideas and enjoy the results.
NLP is not complicated, and if you're interested in trying it out and even change a habit or two - go for the techniques, follow the step by step instructions, and you'll get results.
The hardest part of reading NLP books is choosing the right one. I needed a simple practical reference to "everything NLP", and this is simply the best one out there. I recommend.
This book is easy to read and has no filler, which can be common with NLP books. Which I can understand to a point when it comes to motivating someone to get excited about learning the material and explaining why NLP works. If you're looking for a straight the the point book on NLP then this is it.
One drawback(and the reason of 4 star not 5) -- too many techniques are literally crowded together, it needs a bit more of structure and editing, but that's a matter of personal taste.
Every technique is divided to steps and fully explained. Instead of the usual NLP jargon, the writing is quite clear and to the point, making it easy to practice the tools instantly.
There are a few chapters in the beginning of the book that give a good overview on the future of NLP and answer some of the hardest questions a new learner would have: why isn't NLP a mainstream field? How to go about practicing and mastering these techniques and ideas? how to choose a good training program and why are there so many low-quality training programs? why nobody is supervising the quality that is offered with the "NLP" name? and so on.
The rest of the book is packed with practical techniques and advice.
In summary, I recommend this book to anyone who's interested in the application of NLP without the jargon or theory based discussions.
