    This was a clearly written introduction to the topics, which NLP covers. It has very basic and concise description of each topic, for example Rapport was described in two pages.Fairly short amount of detail given to each topic. So I would highly recommend this book for a beginner who has no idea what NLP is and wants to find out more. The back of the book consists of other NLP resources and books that one can look for to further their knowledge and improve the skills.

So I would highly recommend this book for a beginner who has no idea what NLP is and wants to find out more. The back of the book consists of other NLP resources and books that one can look for to further their knowledge and improve the skills. I will give an overview on what information is included in each chapter. So it is easier to decide whether not not to get the product and what the product is about, including my own experience with the book. The first chapter gives a fair introduction on what exactly NLP is the development of NLP in the 1970s. This is a very brief introduction, although the main points are covered. The extent of the information is not meticulous but rather broad. The the discussion continues with Maps and Filters and the Basic behavioral frames such as orientation toward, how rather than why, feedback versus failure, and considering the possibilities rather then necessities. The authors also talk about learning and they briefly overview the stages that go from unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence. Then the discussion of outcomes, rapport, communication and pacing and leading are discussed. Now the impressions of the first chapter is that it is very similar to the book the "Secret" in a sense that while practicing NLP you need to concentrate on what you want and to frame your thoughts in the positive rather then the negative. Another concern, was that one reviewer said that NLP is pseudoscience, which is not true the authors throughout use sources of scientific studies to back their claims. NLP is used by competent people especially who are successful in business, I apply a lot of the techniques to my life and it works, that is why I highly recommend this book. Chapter two deals with perceptions and how a different view of perception shapes us. The authors further elaborate on the use of language and representational systems. Chapter three introduces anchors and the use of anchors to solve issues, creating anchors and collapsing them. Again this is quite brief it is not an in depth analysis. Chapter four mainly deals with Robert Dilt's unified field of NLP, which is applied to problem solving and changing behavior. Chapter five is on words and the meaning that we give them. Surface and Deep structure is contrasted. And the elements of the Meta Model are introduced. Chapter six deals with time the difference between uptime (when we tune senses to the outer world) and downtime(when we go into ourselves such as visualizing and fantasizing). Time lines are covered with the emphasis of in time and through time time lines. Chapter seven is about finding balance through congruence, which gives us strength and personal power. Identifying when we are in congruence and we are not is offered. Criteria and values are introduced. Chapter eight is about psychotherapy it explains the phobia cure, swish pattern, internal conflict resolution and the like. And chapter nine is dedicated to modeling.

    For anyone coming new to this emergent field of self-improvement this book will be the perfect introduction. Having said that it’s a getting a bit ‘long in the tooth’ now!

Having said that it’s a getting a bit ‘long in the tooth’ now! Nevertheless, it provides a comprehensive and very readable outline of the fundamental principles, that haven’t changed. As is commonly the case with introductory NLP texts, it opens with a brief outline of the history of the development of NLP beginning with the early association and subsequent collaboration between John Grinder and Richard Bandler and the influence that Gregory Bateson had on this process. It then progresses to examining, in a series of chapters, the basics, examples of which are; communication, rapport, pacing and leading, representational systems, predicates, sub-modalities, anchors, feedback, the Meta Model, nominalizations, presuppositions, the Milton Model, metaphor, reframing, timelines, conflict and congruence, metaprograms, Phobia cure, the Swish pattern and modelling. As has been said before, there are some, what might be described as, ‘dry sections’ in the book. This cannot be helped; there is simply no other way to communicate the material and, overall, O’Connor and Seymour do a brilliant job. If you don’t mind ‘touchy feely new age’ writing and, I have to say, usually of U.S. origin, there are other books out there that cover similar ground but, for me, this is good ‘old fashioned’ no nonsense information delivery that is comprehensive and entertaining. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

    I read this book on a whim and over a fair few months. It started out just as a means of passing time, but as I read it I got more and more invested and interested by it. NLP is psychology, but it is far from the days of pigeonholing people. It is very much based on modelling people who excel at particular things, and in fact NLP itself is a model of three very effective therapists - Virginia State, Milton Erikson and Fritz Perls.

It is very much based on modelling people who excel at particular things, and in fact NLP itself is a model of three very effective therapists - Virginia State, Milton Erikson and Fritz Perls. This means that NLP deals with how we perceive reality, how we think, communication, goal-setting and accelerated learning, and that it has very practical applications such as learning, selling/business and psychotherapy. Results are what count and instead of problems, it focuses is on outcomes; the 'whys' are much less important than the desired result, and this differs substantially from traditional psychology and psychotherapy. I found the book very enjoyable and extremely interesting. It has reduced conflict in my life because I now appreciate the importance of rapport and the importance of framing reality in a positive way. I was an armchair Freudian and I now know how analysing others gets one no where; I lead by example instead of nagging from behind. It has also confirmed how subjective everyone is, and towards the end of the book the so-called objectivity of science was tackled under the light of the psychology of perception. And I especially enjoyed the chapter on hypnosis too because it often gets sensationalised by the media, so I enjoyed learning how it works and what Erikson's intentions were when he used it in psychotherapy. I now want to do a course in NLP.

    This book is exactly what it promises to be, an introduction to neurolinguistic programming (NLP). The first chapter gives a brief background of the two authors, Joseph O'Connor and John Seymour, and then a history of NLP as well as a description of what it is. The next four chapters are about us internally; how we think, how language represents our thoughts, and how our states of mind affect our beliefs.

The next four chapters are about us internally; how we think, how language represents our thoughts, and how our states of mind affect our beliefs. Then the authors get into how we can change ourselves for the better, starting with how we use language in expressing our beliefs and how changing the words we use can change our beliefs. The book progresses into explaining patterns and systems that we can use to become the persons we want to be. While most of this book is about using NLP to help affect changes within ourselves, Chapter 6 does briefly discuss how we can use our language to help others access their unconscious thoughts (though there is nothing about how to plant thoughts in someone's subconscious mind). I actually found the Epilogue to be the most interesting part of the book, although I'm not sure it really fits with the rest of the book. The Epilogue starts with a discussion about learning and how we learn, but then goes into a talk about global warming and then to the transformation of scientific process. The authors do try to link this all to NLP, but I'm not sure it worked; at least not for me.

    This book has changed my life for the better. I have applied the techniques and made note of the things I can do when other phobias and blockages and barriers arise as threats to my present and future happiness - and I feel much better and much more positive about my ability to handle life and self. I was even inspired to use the knowledge in this book to help friends and family - it's such a wonderful, useful and helpful resource that the methods can be used anywhere and at any time at the drop This book has changed my life for the better. I have applied the techniques and made note of the things I can do when other phobias and blockages and barriers arise as threats to my present and future happiness - and I feel much better and much more positive about my ability to handle life and self. I was even inspired to use the knowledge in this book to help friends and family - it's such a wonderful, useful and helpful resource that the methods can be used anywhere and at any time at the drop of a hat (whatever that means). So, now that I'm whole (again), I can get back to life (again). But seriously - this book, if you can get into it, and persevere with it ('cause it ain't such an easy read - there's just soooo much to absorb) will enable you to make changes in the way you see life and the world and you will, inevitably, be a better person for it! Just do it.

    This is a well-written, charming, even witty, general introduction to NLP. Read it to get an idea of what NLP can offer you. In a way, NLP encapsulates an approach from a certain era, when psychologists and others were interested in taking apart the human mind to see how it worked as a system, how it worked with others, and how it could be engineered to work better. NLP got a largely undeserved reputation for being a manipulative and slightly scary way to get other people to do what you wanted t This is a well-written, charming, even witty, general introduction to NLP.

In a way, NLP encapsulates an approach from a certain era, when psychologists and others were interested in taking apart the human mind to see how it worked as a system, how it worked with others, and how it could be engineered to work better. NLP got a largely undeserved reputation for being a manipulative and slightly scary way to get other people to do what you wanted them to do because it was an early (modern era) look into how the unconscious mind influences our behavior. If you could tap into some of those unconscious thought processes, then you could influence people to behave in certain ways without their conscious knowledge. Now, most of what NLP covers has been subsumed into other ways of thinking about the mind, or overtaken by the extraordinary progress in neuroscience in the past twenty years. Where NLP posited models of human unconscious behavior, neuroscience can actually look at what the brain is doing. Nonetheless, there is still a good deal of what NLP covers that can be used practically for improving your own performance, or response, or psychological states. The idea of anchoring, for example, is simply about switching out an unpleasant memory for a more pleasant one by deliberating managing your memories and your emotional responses to them. The underlying idea, that we can manage our emotions rather than just being victim to them (especially the negative ones) is still useful, and has been taken up, enhanced, and further elucidated by many subsequent studies based in neuroscience.

    This book was recommended by Neil Strauss. It is more a textbook with what I felt were limited practical examples. Given that NLP is about modelling excellence I feel the writers could have modelled some more engaging authors in order to explain their subject.

    I didn't really know what NLP was about when I first started this. I was happy to learn that language itself is at the heart of everything we do internally and externally- from our perceptions of ourselves and how our self talk either limits our potential or expands it, to how we speak to others in our lives from relationships to negotiations. The material was really intricate and it will definitely require practice and revisiting in order to fully understand the concepts and techniques, but def I didn't really know what NLP was about when I first started this.

    I'm not so sure whether NLP is just a systemized and scientifically backed approach to psychotherapy or a random collection of tactics that maybe could theoretically (and so on) improve something I do not know about. But after all I can't blame a book for the topic it deals with and I have to say that this is all in all quite a good introduction to NLP. There are parts when you say to yourself: "I would have liked to know more about this" or "Why does this work" but I think that is just an aspect I'm not so sure whether NLP is just a systemized and scientifically backed approach to psychotherapy or a random collection of tactics that maybe could theoretically (and so on) improve something I do not know about.

    This is a must have for anyone looking to completely turn their world upside down. If you want to be happier, make more money, meet that special someone or just get laid more often this book will help you if you apply yourself. This practice is the basis for self help gurus, specifically Anthony Robbins. I am a firm believer that is also the basis for "The Secret" revolution.

    This is an extremely informative book all the way through! I thoroughly enjoyed reading and learning about these techniques. Occasionally, it comes across as a bit dry or intellectual, but once you start applying the information in your life, it becomes very exciting!

    What I really liked about this intro nlp book, is that the author started right in the middle of the subject and branched out from there. Fast paced book with useful intro techniques for understanding your subconscious and ways to manipulate it for positive results aka life change chosen by you, consciously.

    If I were in the field of psychology I would probably rate the book higher. It is a very good primer for the field, as it explains what NLP is in terms even a layman like me can understand. The book is written in a very readable format and the style makes it a good read. I would recommend the book for anyone who works with people and their emotions and feelings.

    It's a little dry, at worst. The concepts seem to be only half-effective, but I've never had NLP coaching; so I'm no expert. The true strength of the book lies in the self-awareness it creates. After reading it, you will look more closely at how you live your life. It's a little dry, at worst. The concepts seem to be only half-effective, but I've never had NLP coaching; so I'm no expert.

Well, that's on me, but I'd recommend it as a to-read if you're to make first steps into the "NLP". My trouble with NLP is that I feel it's something I call "popular psychology", it's a fancy name for something that is actually a cross-science collection of human behavior and language. Overall, book isn't bad, but its age is showing and in that way it's similar to The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales which I've also read and reviewed. I'd recommend this book mostly to those who are new to NLP, to start with something light, and already at that point decide if that's the topic they want to research further on. At this point, I'd instead recommend another great book on human behavior and thinking - Thinking, Fast and Slow which is IMO better written, has more insight and doesn't sell any "training" or workshops.

How do you filter the inputs you receive through your senses? You know that our brain is lazy and it prefers discharging decisions in an unconscious level, but without the intervention of our conscious reasoning, without comparing expectations versus results, it's impossible to calibrate ourselves, to learn in other words.

I also didn't like the fact that they didn't mention anywhere that this wasn't based on scientific research and that it was only just a speculation. I usually don't like to read books which aren't based on research because everybody can write a book and it seems like everyone's an expert nowadays, so it would've been nice to know that this was just their personal opinion and their own beliefs, not something you should blindly follow.

    This book is about language and communication. There is a lot of analysis of how we talk, both to others and to ourselves in our own thoughts. This book has helped me realize how much misunderstanding and ambiguity there can be in everyday conversations, and that a lot of times if people don't completely understand something you say, they'll just guess the meaning rather than asking you for clarification. There are a ton of exercises you can try out with friends. If you want to get the most value This book is about language and communication.

    Some really interesting stuff in here. I'm not 100% sure it's not BS but I'm going to keep it in mind and see if it really does work. Even if it doesn't there are still some very good thoughts and ideas about psychology in general that will definitely help me with my day to day communication in work and personal relationships.

    Good introduction on the Subject of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It is the practice of using language and imagery to improve emotional responses to challenging situation in life, and to improve the enjoyment of life in general. The theory also has applications on communication and teamwork as it allows to tap into the languages of other people, whether they respond more to visual, auditory or sensory language. Sensitivity to others' modes of communication allows us to "pace" our communication p Good introduction on the Subject of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

    This book was my first introduction to Neuro Linguistic Programming. 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.
