I ordered this book last year and have read it many times over. Robert succeeds in s-p-e-l-l-i-n-g out not only how to model, but how to detect patterns and replicate them. Patterns both cognitive and/or physical. He provides a framework upon which to organize all of your resources (NLP and otherwise) to get exactly what you want. What if you looked at the world in a way that everything around you was yours for the *learning* such as things which we label as 'talents', 'athletic skill', or even 'IQ'? What if everyone is truly an example of excellence, and you had the key to replicate that excellence?
I recently went to Rex Sikes' outstanding Master Prac / Modelling Seminar. This book is a welcome addition to the material presented by Rex. For those who haven't signed up for his seminar yet, this is the best book on modelling I've found.
Through modelling, the world is your oyster.

The field of NLP's life blood is suppose to be Modeling though there doesn't seem or at least around time that this book was published this was the case. This is a very good book for teaching people how to set filters within in ones on experience in order to track patterns for the creation of a model. Robert does a good job explaining how he models. I think this book is an excellent reference. Though I would say that Modeling is something that you have to do as opposed to read about to truly get 'it'.

There are a couple other really good modeling references that people should take a look at 'The Emprint Method', David Gordon's book on modeling, 'Expanding Your World' is good and it even comes with a DVD of David Gordon demonstrating how to use his method of modeling. John Grinder has his own method of modeling that's interesting but you have have to go to him to learn. I would also recommend going to Steve Andreas' website, just google his name and his site will come up. On there he's written some articles on Modeling that are incredibly useful.

Anyhow, check out this book if you are interesting in learning how to do Behavioral Modeling.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) began with the modeling of the language patterns of three outstanding therapists by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Since 1975 Robert Dilts has been one of the most fertile minds in consistently applying and creatively developing NLP. He has the rare gift in collaborating and co-creating with so many talented people in workshops and projects (to many of these he dedicates the present book). He is also able to model people in history through writings and biographies. His vision, productivity and leadership abilities have enriched NLP immensely and benefited humankind. The whole NLP community worldwide owes a great debt to him. This book is an excellent example of how Robert continues to be of service to anyone who wants to learn and use NLP. Here he has put together what many of us have been learning through his workshops in the past two decades, the key components of modeling. For those who have some background in NLP, it is helpful to master this book first. This is the first comprehensive account of the NLP modeling process. Other books only give piece-meal strategies. Once we grasp the whole view, if we go on to his previous books and reports on various modeling projects, we would have a much better sense of the kind of processes which are being applied. Tools for Dreamers, the 3 volumes of Strategies of Genius, Dynamic Learning, Skills for the Future, Visionary Leadership Skills will all help to concretise our assimilation of the modeling process--the heart of NLP.

reading Sleight of Mouth by Dilts gave me a true
spiritual epiphany! in the deepest sense and changed
my life forever. this book is a later one. Dilts is a good
Catholic boy as i have heard Bandler suggest who was
among the first at UC Santa Cruz to learn of NLP. I highly
recommend his work, "Sleight of mouth" to transform your
life with empathy for not only yourself, but others and show
you how to heal yourself and or others with the techniques in
this book. Michael Hall's book on logical levels is perhaps
more informative and flush, but Dilts here is the pioneer in many
ways and in my mind this book is still valid and a classic.

If one would make of the great NLP modellers, Robert Dilts will certainly be part of the list. As well as he would make it to the top 5 list of NLP's great writers. Being one of the sudents of Dilt's Modeling & Epistemology class at NLP University, I'm quite familiar to Dilt's ideas about modelling. Much of the thinking explained in this explains the process I've been going through while writing "7 steps to emotional intelligence". The great point of NLP modelling is that it focusses on people that are excellent in a certain area (have a certain competence, supported by certain beliefs)- this book describes how you derive "the pattern that connects" by studying several experts in a domain. You get the "how" as well as examples of NLP modelling. The only problem is that it takes a considerable level of NLP skills before you can put this book into practice.
