Format: Paperback
Funny, well written and packed full of very useful techniques. This book should be required reading for ALL medical practitioners. Consulting with NLP should also be recommended reading for anyone with the desire to be an effective (and appreciative) member of a profession where daily contact with human beings is a requirement. Written in a very "common sense" sort of way - it delivers the techniques in a very practical format.

Would certainly recommend to anyone and everyone.Consulting with NLP: Neuro-linguistic Programming in the Medical Consultation

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By bill jaffrey on 7 April 2003
Format: Paperback
As a practising G.P.,I have found this book invaluable as an everyday tool of communication. It details easy and subtle ways of gaining congruence and rapport with patients, colleagues, Practice staff and also friends and relatives. Indeed anyone with whom we have to communicate. Dr Walker's open and simple style makes what may appear to be difficult concepts easily followed and the exercises described add greatly to the understanding.I find myself using the techniques in virtually all my consulting and communicating and often without even thinking about them. With the increasing interest in N.L.P. in all areas of communication, the book is an ideal introduction for all of us with people to talk to.

For myself,as a practising G.P. with some basic knowledge of N.L.P., Dr Walker's book has filled out in easily readable and extremely practical methods,new techniques in the art of real communication with real people.The anecdotes and exercises have proved enlightening and are of daily help in my work.I consider this book to be of tremendous interest to anyone who seeks to communicate and connect with patients and people.It has tranceformed both my professional attitude and my personal relationships.

Format: Paperback
Unlike Dr Jaffrey, I don't have the benefit of being in Dr Walker's NLP practise group, so my review must be confined to comments on the book itself. And what a let down it is.
The first thing that put me off was the number of unnecessary errors. For example, the book says that psychologists reckon that we get bombarded with two million pieces of information every second. But since we can only be consciously aware of about 7 pieces of information at a time we just delete the other 1,999,993 pieces of information.
More careful research shows that information technologists reckon we receive about 2.4 million 'bits' of information per minute, though we can only consciously handle about 300-500 bits per minute. Bit has a very precise meaning here, as in computing.
The '7 bits per second' is taken, I guess, from Miller's article on the Magic Number 7 plus or minus 2. But the 7 'bits' in Millers articles aren't 'bits' in the modern sense, and Miller's article makes it clear that the heart of the matter is that we can handle 7 'chunks' of information at a time, plus or minus 2, and that chunks are variable in size. There is also ample evidence that we do NOT throw everything else away - we store some of it, or maybe all of it, at the subconscious level where we may or may not consciously access it at some other time.
Only a page or two later there's some stuff about Mehrabian's experiments. Not only does the book claim they were carried out in the 1970s (the first articles were published in 1967!), but it completely misses out the rather important fact that the figures 7%, 38% and 55% ONLY apply to statements of opinion and feelings, and ONLY where there is inconsistency between the words, the vocal signals and the body language.
