In no time at all, all the problems of the world would be solved. Or something like that.
Everyone in the book has success. Not everyone who goes thru an NLP program will ... even the best, highest quality programs.
How do I know? I'm certified as a Master practitioner of NLP.
Let me be clear though -- there are some VERY powerful frames within this book.
It is, however, NLP simplified. Without going thru some of the stickier stuff. Like -- well, what are all the presuppositions of NLP?
Bandler does mention some of his own, and they are powerful.
There is little doubt in my mind about how powerful various NLP patterns can be. I've seen it in my own life... and I've seen it with others.
THAT SAID...it is one of the BEST introductions to NLP...
And I would highly recommend it. There are powerful concepts which could dramatically change your life... for the price and the small investment of time... it's a great investment.
This book is written by one of NLP's co-founders and two acolytes. While an introduction, it may well clarify some areas for people already familiar with NLP. I have read a number of NLP books and found this one unique and unusually readable.
This book is readable in that it is set up as a story involving several people going to one of the author's seminars and shows them practicing the techniques, having questions, and applying the techniques to their lives. This makes the concepts more comprehensible than in a straight-up explanatory book. Especially helpful are the last two chapters (18pp.) which beautifully summarize and reinforce the book's key points.
It is unique in that it explains what NLP does without the mind-numbing extensive jargon of most NLP books. Still, the main elements of the jargon are there, but so easily and naturally defined and explained that this book might be helpful for those with more experience, and confusion, with NLP.
One warning: to get the most out of NLP you need to develop your powers of visualization, both for sound and feeling as well as sight. Some of NLP's elements may sound goofy, and are regularly attacked by establishment psychologists. But NLP has a lot of loyal followers, so why not try some of its techniques? This book is a good start.
Why only 4 stars? The book is short and at the end advertises Bandler's "products" to an extent I find annoying.
Top international reviews
When I read that I turned to the front page of the book expecting to see this was written in the 90s or something. NOPE - 2013! Are you joking?? I’ve put the book down now, what a pile of crap.
I enjoyed reading this and found it easier to absorb than some books on NLP.
Full of fun
Fun of lessons and teaching
A must have NLP book
