A reference book by its nature and to be in every linguists and hypnotherapists bookshelf or night table to be more useful.
My father always told me that a sign of a good book is an index. When it arrived, to my initial dismay, it had no index or a contents page. Leafing through it my momentary dismay turned to joy as I noted the contents were indexed alphabetically.
I looked up every different pattern I could think of. In the process, I discovered, and you may discover too, patterns used not only by Erickson, but also Bandler, Derren Brown, Tad James, Steven Lankton, Ernest Rossi and other luminaries. In addition, a plethora of other nlp patterns one could use in coaching, or hypnotherapy.
If you're like me, its not necessarily a book you'd read through cover to cover. You might think, reverse yes set, or confusion pattern, or negation, or embedded commands, or reverse double bind, hypnotic questions, or reverse set double bind and then look it up. Alternatively, you might leaf through and see what catches your attention, like a dictionary. I racked my brain, and could not think of any type of pattern that was not in the book.
When you look up these patterns you will usually find the pattern structure described followed by numerous examples. You can then use them or develop your own patterns for use in different contexts.
A couple of patterns were not explained, just examples given.
So, this book is a valuable resource which I am pleased to own, and I look forward to practising the thousands of patterns contained on its 670 pages. I commend it to you for your consideration.
I hope this was useful.
It would have been more accurate to call this "Encyclopedia of Language Patterns". Maybe that title was already taken.
But the whole book lists each entry in alphabetical order which is helpful.
Still it would have been nice to have an index or TOC for easy quick reference in finding things.
