You may notice that sometimes you are not ready to move on to the next chapter - a couple of times it took me two consecutive nights of sleep for my brain to process a chapter, instead of one. I have not known anyone who has read this book at a rate greater than one chapter per day (it is, of course, physically possible, but that would be beside the point, which is to give new things to your brain at approximately the rate at which it can process them). This book is also valuable on subsequent reads. Most people I know, myself included, have read this book two or three times, a couple of years apart.
Structure is not about politics, religion, or sexuality. It is not about subscribing to or living in any particular creed or culture. The themes run deeper than that, which is why they are difficult to describe. The title does give a hint, though. In many first-world cultures, and in Western cultures in particular, people are taught to be unhappy. They are taught that they are not good enough unless they do specific things or follow specific political or religious or sexual paths, that nothing matters except winning or being first, that nothing matters other than material success. Among other things, Structure teaches you to choose what matters to you, instead of letting other people choose for you. And it does it in a healthy way, not in a "you'll be much happier as a sociopath" way.
I love Nelson Zink's web-site.
It is only the rare find that I recommend, only the rarest of which I buy extra copies of in order to give as gifts. This is one of those `finds' given as a gift as occasion warrants.
With nary an explicit mention of "NLP" this book demonstrates many aspects of NLP in a particularly inviting way that lets folks experience positive change now.
And besides that, there's lots of darn good stories!
(although at times hackneyed) tale of personal growth. A great
way to package many different techniques in a lively format.
Definitely a nice reprieve from "technique textbooks" and
"seminar transcripts" that seem so common in the world of NLP.
I found myself highlighting many useful quotes and stories,
and have recommended the book to several close friends and
associates. It's on my list of books to reread every so often.
