Format: Paperback
The book is the most compete NLP book on one single binding. It is very well organized and very structured - definitely the most definitive basic NLP book in the market.

Perhaps that's why this book is one of the recommended introductory text in many NLP Practitioner courses, and it is still in printing after so many years and so many printings.

The NLP ideas presented here starts from the basic and slowly progresses in-depth. It does not have too much NLP jargon, and yet not too simple. (where jargon is used, you can refer to the appendices where each NLP term is explained in clear day-to-day English)

Each chapter is packed with well connected series of NLP concepts and tools, seamlessly connected to the following chapters, and normally ends with some NLP exercises which you can immediately use to change your life.

Unlike other self-help books where the so-called guru pumps you up with their motivational ideas, normally without much substance, the NLP ideas presented here are without all the fluff and "how poor turned heroes" stories. In this book, O'Connor just give you pure power-packed NLP ideas that you can try on yourself and others for immediate results.

This is definitely the NLP book. If you're looking for only one good basic NLP book to change your life, look no further.

I very much wanted to get into this little known science of NLP, brainchild of Richard Bandler and John Grinder, for some time. After careful examination of similar books I chose this one after reading some of the page excerpts.

Boy am I glad I did!! This book lays a framework and gives the fundamentals to this awesome science, and does so with such grace and ease that it is mesmerising. It simply and eloquently explains how you can use your brain to it's fullest potential and how to use your senses to design ways to get what you've always wanted.

NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming (don't be turned off by the fancy title) is simply a way of life to help you succeed. It is the language used by winners - the science and art of NLP was invented by studying what successful people do differently to everyone else; how their mindsets allowed them to succeed where others fail.

It's little wonder that this book has got 5 stars from practically everyone who has bought it. It changed my life, and if you are looking for ways to get where you want to be in life then go for it.

I consider myself a dabbler in NLP and have read several books on the topic. Perhaps, "attempted to read" might be a more accurate depiction. I found the works by Bandler and Grinder and the Andreas's very difficult to get through. At the other end of the spectrum, there are other works on NLP or NLP-related techniques that are quite readable but seem geared towards those lacking all self-esteem. This book by O'Connor and Seymour is an easy-to-read, logical, and objective overview of NLP without the claims of life-altering benefits.

For those interested in using NLP to improve communication skills and learn more about how our minds work, this book is the place to start.

Important that while many recommend this book as self help such as myself it is important to make a few distinctions. Most self help today is pep talk with a few tips here and there but mostly nice stories that can help you "feel nice" and believe in yourself. This is somewhat differant. This maybe described by some to be a users manual for your brain. The science is derived from "modeling" the communication, verbal and non-verbal, of people who have been highly effective in communication and/or creating change. The science is new and to some that can be less than encouraging, however, having been a skeptic once I will say, IT WORKS! All this book is, is a toolbox, nothing more, of tools. If you do not use the tools, if you do not allow yourself to try new ideas, then this will serve as nothing more than exposure to a growing science. If you do choose to practice these tools, they may not be the most important things that you ever learn in your life, but you may find that they can have a very strong positive impact. Here are some applications:
Learn about subconscious communication which may help you rethink some of the things you say in order to deliver the intended message or to read what others are thinking. This requires a little practice and understand of verbal negation.
Discover a model which I can only describe as a model for inner peace. No, it does not tell you how to do this, it may not even describe it as inner peace but if you have knowledge about happiness philosophy it will make sense. Read the chapter on congruency, I find it inspiring.

This book was my first introduction to NLP. It was insightful, but very dry. I could only stomach 4-6 pages at a time, but the information was good enough to get me through the book. It is an introduction, as the title says, so it gave me an idea of what NLP is and direction for further study, but not a lot of practical takes-aways.
