First, let me say I am a fan of Richard Bandler.

I attended his seminar first in 1990 in USA and recently last year in Scotland and this year in Holland.

If you want to use (not just read and feel smart, but really use and get smarter), this is the single most important book.

If you want to use just one book in the rest of your life, I'll say this is the book.

This book introduces new advances in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). The new methods are so advanced, they are really easy to use and benefit from. You get, see and feel the results immediately.

Whether you are totally new to Richard's teachings or whether you have learnt some NLP, or an really experienced in NLP, you'll learn a lot and really benefit.

This book is divided into 3 parts:

Part 1: Getting Over It
You learn how to get over bad suggestions, bad memories, fears and phobias, grief, bad relationships, and bad decisions.

Part 2: Getting Through It
You learn how to do or what to do with habits and compulsions, recovery, resignation, big events, tests (exams and interviews) and obligations

Part 3: Getting To It
Here, you learn to have fun, love, meet people, do important duties (taxes and study), do exercise, be more organized, make more money, and make big decisions

This is not a book, but a workbook (like seminar in a box).

You read a bit and then do what Richard teaches you. Follow the instructions and you'll get instant, immediate results.

Thank you Dr Richard Bandler for your genius.

I'll admit I've read Nlp books and felt lost... Even though I knew the teachings were sound and capable of changing your thinking. I just couldn't grasp the "practical" side of applying nlp to my life. But this book changed all that.

It's like you get to sit in on intimate sessions with Richard Bandler as he spins his magical web. Not only that, he hand delivers powerful shortcuts to change almost every area of your life. Only it's not with theory and fluff, but simple exercises you can... and will... use to instantly change your mind.

If you ever wanted to experience the full potential of nlp, or your confused about how to apply nlp to achieve personal and lasting growth, then this will be the best nlp book you will ever read.

P.S. Thanks Richard for sharing this.

I was on a conference call with Richard about a week or so ago and we talked about this book and the upcoming release of his hypnotic language patterns book (coming out November).

Here is what I can say from my heart about the man and about this book: Richard loves life, he loves people, and you get that in this book. He doesn't see any need for suffering over time. Whatever is not working for you in your life, Richard knows that you can get through it, over it or to it without suffering over time. He is not about doing it one way, the right way, his way - he is ALL ABOUT doing what works, doing it fast, and creating shifts in your life that impact you immediately and generatively. A generative shift is one that self adjusts over time, giving you access to more freedom, self expression and power in your life.

During the call, Richard shared that the idea for the book came to him while he was cooking. He thought about all the folks who will never walk into a certified NLP training, who may be intimated to delve into Hypnotic Learning Patterns or The Structure of Magic. All at once he knew that after nearly 40 years of change making with people from all walks of life and all parts of the world, that he was the one, (and I say the ONLY ONE) who could write a workable book where foundational NLP techniques and DHE tools are as easy to follow as a recipe for baking a chocolate cake.

He achieved his goal. As soon as I am out of the swimming pool, I am sending you a postcard, dear friend! (Swimming phobia from age 8, professional lessons, prior hypnosis, even a Tony Robbins phobia session did not work; what it took was this book!)

Buy the book. Put your skepticism in your closet long enough to read it.

Most books on NLP are poorly written and full of jargon that assumes a lot of familiarity with the field. This is especially true of Bandler's books, many of which are transcribed talks from workshops that he has given.

THIS BOOK IS A GEM. Give it to your friends and colleagues. Each chapter deals with a specific type of problem such as a phobia or post traumatic stress . The chapters are short and sweet. At the end of each chapter, he summarizes the process in a one, two, three list. It is sort of NLP for Dummmies. Hat's off to Bandler. He is a giant of psychology and now he finally has written a book for the masses.

RB is listed as the father and cocreator of NLP. So, you may wonder how this latest ode to his love child compares with previous offerings.

It's so refreshing to read a book that explains how to do NLP in plain language.

As he says: "It's not a philosophy. It's not an ideology. It's not a religion. It's a toolbox."

As you get further into this book you will find exercises for many common life situations, including grief, taking tests, doing taxes, increasing desire, falling more in love, falling out of love, together with applications of well known processes such as the swish pattern, and the fast phobia model for traumatic memories.

Apparently RB used to teach flirting. I would like to have seen him elaborate more on the flirting process, darn it.

I particularly liked his take on the fast phobia model.

Years ago Virginia Satir asked him what he thought the dominant instinct in human beings is. He replied 'Survival.' Her answer has stuck with him ever since.

This book shows RB's insight, followed by process and exercise which you can easily do yourself. Its easy to imagine referring to this book first to read RB's take on the situation first before reading another book or manual.

I would certainly recommend this as a first read for someone new or unfamiliar with NLP. If you're more interested in the Milton and Meta Model of communication, and already have trance experience, I would recommend Guide to Trance Formations.

I hope you find this review helpful.
