"Richard Bandler is a Leonardo of our times. He is one of our living greats." (The Guardian Weekend)
"The must have self-help book!" (Paul McKenna)
More of a narrative than a users guide imo nonetheless the book delivered on several NLP tactics for change both immediate & longer term. I would recommend this to an open minded friend.
I approached this with an open mind, but as I progressed, I became increasingly disconcerted by the format. The book takes the form of a story about somebody learning about NLP. Throughout, the way the people behave and their reactions are constantly creepy and verging on cultish. It reminded me of when I was talked into attending an MLM meeting, and the subtle verbal bullying that's attempted to make you do their bidding. Given that this isn't a story of a real situation, it's literally the most glowing way they can describe somebody being introduced to their own techniques, it's really worrying that they managed to make it sound so... icky and weird. I tried every exercise. I won't lie, some of them were helpful. Some of them nearly gibberish. Most of them you could be told in a 20 minute session, except this has to happen within the framework of the story to try to hypnotise you into believing that they all work (because you're hearing about a dude whose life is transformed by the techniques... a made up dude). Finally, the love-interest part is just crass. It's literally "and he gets the girl..." with the implication that if you act like him, you will too! This has, on balance, really turned me away from wanting to know more about NLP.
No . This is obviously supposed to be an important topic but infusing the story with some kind of banal love interest and descriptions of what people are wearing is just tedious and irritating. I also consider referring to someone as a gorilla is totally unacceptable and unprofessional . Some of the examples given were unorthodox too and slightly dubious.
It would have been better if they just stuck to the theory and not bothered with the badly written banal story.
The information was very useful and could listen to this book over and over again. I wished they had some chapters at the end which reminded you of the techniques though
For a users guide, I was expecting a guide. Unfortunately, this works out to be simply a story following a man at a NLP workshop.
The end fizzles out, again without much of a take-home message or useful advice.
This book was so easy to listen to that giving it anything other than 5 stars seems churlish. Exactly how you'd hope the actual course would be. A very pleasant journey.
It was light and easy to listen to
I liked the expression in his voice. He was quite humorous
"Interesting to the end"
I felt like I was in a practioner course , highly recommend to anyone
