Review

"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., Milano

"Shlomo is giving us exactly what we asked for - all the good stuff, without the fluff. This outstanding work is going to be an essential, perhaps even mandatory, textbook in any NLP training around the globe." --Deborah Eizenstein, NLP Trainer and Researcher

"NLP could be the most important synthesis of knowledge about human communications to emerge since the '60s." --Science Digest


"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." --Isaac Gozlan, Business Consultant & NLP Trainer 

NLP could be the most important synthesis of knowledge about human communications to emerge since the '60s. --Science Digest

When you read this book, you can discover many practical techniques that you will not find under the single roof of another nlp book. I imagine you would have to buy several different books to match the content of this one.

I wondered in buying this book if it would be possible to use it for training purposes, or at least use some of it in training. What I would recommend would be a spiral bound version for ease of use.

Reading through it gradually I have learned many things I did not know.
For example when I learned nlp I was taught the three perceptual positions of nlp.

1. Associated - subjective. Seeing hearing and feeling with your own VAK.
2. Dissociated - Seeing yourself in the picture. Like watching a movie of yourself jumping in a lake rather than jumping in a lake.
3. Other person position. What would you do if you were in another person's shoes?

This book offers two more perceptual positions, although opinions tend to differ once you move beyond the basic 3.

In addition it offers many intriguing techniques you may never have heard of, such as falling in love pattern, resolving internal conflicts, loving yourself pattern, assertiveness installation, the excuse blowout pattern, circle of excellence, forgiveness pattern, the Godiva chocolate pattern, and Erickson's 55 hypnotic phrases to name a few.

If you are new to nlp, and not yet ready for something this comprehensive I recommend Bandler's "Get the Life you Want," and/or "Sourcebook of Magic" by L Michael Hall, which has 77 patterns. Then, as you get more experienced, and start working with people, you can run with this book, having learned to walk with the others.

Hope this was useful.

The book contains some useful content but I find that it lacks an overall structure as well as a good table of content to reflect it. Further, it would benefit from more rigour in the theoretical background behind the exercises which is often absent. I'm wondering if the book as been reviewed at all by an editor as the quality of the language is poor and with frequent grammatical and spelling mistakes. I just realized that the book has been self-published and it shows.

Other example of the lack of professional editing includes tasteless and even sexist jokes such as:
- about the `size' submodality - "Size matters! Don't believe the girl who says it isn't. If she can't see it..."
- about the `change of focus' submodality - "They spoke in words that only they make clear meaning of (you know, women are excellent in that skill - and luckily for all of us, they use it well to educate their men)"
This is just two of countless examples of tasteless and irrelevant `jokes'. How can this be in a NLP training book? A book that is meant to be used by professionals?

I wish I could be more positive about it but I can't, not after paying 70$ for it.

I have not completely read this book yet (it is a painful experience so I have to do it in small chunks) so I will update this review in the future.

Firstly, the title would be more accurate if it were "A Big LIST of NLP Techniques", though, in fact, it is a BIG BOOK. The most useful part of the book is the Table of Contents. After that, it is a crap shoot.

Mr. Vaknin is obviously not a native speaker of English and that might not be a problem were this an audio book. But since it is written, the glaring problems with usage are troubling. Consider that this is a book primarily about LANGUAGE and so it is crucial that the LANGUAGE be precise. It is anything but. One can often find a dozen or more usage problems on a single page. From simple things such as "worst" when "worse" was intended to entire sections that read like word salad.

The worsT example I have come across could not have been worsE if Mr. Vaknin had tried to parody Erickson's "word salad". It comes in the chapter titled "Erickson's 55 Hypnotic Phrases". I have seen videos of Erickson and heard tapes of him working. The man spoke English ... I am sure of it. But what is presented, between quotation marks, is anything but English so I have to doubt that Erickson actually said them. And, since is no reference given to the work of Erickson in which these may be found, how can I check? (In fact, I have seen almost no references so far ... only a general bibliography.) Examples: "... it might be a way that meets your needs, when ..." or "How much curious could you be if you'd know that ...". And I really don't consider: "With your permission..." to be a hypnotic pattern, any more than "good morning" would be. And this illustrates another problem ... puffing.

The book is full of useful techniques. However, it is not well-written. Needs a good proofreader and/or editor.

I got this book for Christmas and I was absolutely stunned. It has no fluff just like in the description and it was surprisingly easy to understand. It gives you step by step instructions on how to do the pattern and tells you what the pattern is supposed to accomplish. It even seems to go from fundamental to more advanced. It is very helpful and has helped me achieve some levels of nlp that I though I couldn't reach for a while. Great book.
