Bandler weaves together several NLP-based behavioural techniques into exercises of self-hypnotherapy, or sometimes lists of tips, for the reader to practice as they attempt to deal with a personal problem or challenge. This is not a definitive book on NLP, and not all NLP methods are employed.
One does not need to understand NLP to apply Bandler's approach, though it would likely help. The reader does need to have faith.
The book does remind me of the approach taken by many self-help books published over the last few decades; all of which have a power-of-positive-thinking theme. Particularly (and ironically) the book "How to Get What You Want" by Raymond Hull published in the late '60s. Bandler's book, like many such self-help books, is coloured by an existentialist philosophical undertone. What sets his book apart, and I hope elevates it, is the application of the sophisticated techniques used by NLP practitioners.
The book is an easy read of two hundred pages. Bandler intersperses avuncular advice between the exercises. In fact, the book could have been much shorter. Much of what Bandler has to say between the exercises is just filler; he tediously preaches common sense such as "pay your taxes" "give full attention to your wife" and so on. This is unnecessary and even grating for the mature reader.
But as an exercise manual this succeeds as it guides the reader in the art of how to apply a highly-developed form of self-hypnosis to adjusting the inner self. Although the book cover promises "quick and lasting" I suggest patience and perseverance.
The methods of not digging in for what did not work and why, but rather analyze and see and amplify what works and apply the results are all very sound to me.
His concept of not " tell me how you feel about it" used by the traditional psychology but rather "where in the body do you feel it" does make sense to me if you want to change your unpleasant feelings and undertones of your mood. He gives you the tools to achieve the results you want consistently.
I found his spinning technique working remarkably well if you want to amplify the good feeling and change your mood for a better rapidly.
All in all, it is an excellent manual to work on yourself and take responsibility for your moods and happiness. I am glad I bought this book. One of a kind to me. I find myself re-reading it from time to time and always finding some new info.
It doesn't matter where you are right now... get this book and use the techniques and reclaim your happiness and well-being. I can tell you from first-hand experience, reading his books, listening to the incredible audio programs and attending a live seminar, this man knows how to empower you with the simple techniques that will change your life in the most positive direction possible.
I have recommended this book to a few friends now and everyone of them thanked me for it. Make a difference in your own life and the lives of others and take the first step. Buy this book and learn from the master.
reflects the advancement in nlp technology and in practical application...i really appreciate the research bandler
