4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive study written in an easy style. 29 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was relieved to discover that Introducing NLP is well-written, in an easy style that covers a wide range of subjects. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) sounds like such a mouthful that I thought it might be full of psychobabble, suitable only for psychotherapists.
I found it easy to read and it did not confuse with unnecessary technical details. The three-minute seminar sums up the whole approach:
1.Know what you want,
2.Be alert so you know what you are getting
3.Be flexible to keep changing what you do until you get what you want.
Practical advice and strategies are offered to guide you towards what you want - your 'Desired State' - and to raise your awareness of what you are getting - your 'Present State'. This awareness is achieved by drawing on the power of the imagination through all the senses, although sight, sound and feelings are the strongest influences. Anyone with a little effort can apply this approach to almost any area of his or her life. Techniques describe ways to build rapport with others and recognise the way their thinking is dominated by the senses. Those with predominant visual awareness 'see what you mean' whilst those where feelings dominate can 'grasp the meaning'.
I found the chapters on the way language is used particularly useful. Valuable lessons are given so that you can get the whole story through the type and quality of questions you ask, yourself and others. The reader is also warned that used inappropriately or insensitively the approach can end in mayhem and disaster. It made me realise just how much of an art it is to ask the right questions in the right way.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great introduction to NLP 12 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book does exactly what is say on the cover: introducing you to Neuro-Linguistic Programming. i am quite a visual learner and was disappointed by not seeing many pictures in it but i found that the authors have excelled at making the techniques accessible to all. I have read the book in about 4/5 hours and have made notes along the way of techniques to use in my own life. Just a week in, I can already see changes in myself and the way I deal with others.
The only reproach I would make to the book is that it is packed with a lot of information and that ALL the techniques look interesting. I feel that as a reader I did not have enought time to take them in and try them before moving to another aspect of NLP: pace was too fast (hence the note taking in my journal).
I have also purchased NLP workbook by O'Connor (on of the author of Introducing NLP programming) and I like the fact that it has "guided" exercises, on the other hand i found its pace a little too slow for a book for my liking but great for a seminar.
i would thoroughly recommend this book to start NLP but you may need to combine it with a more practical guide for excellent results.

4.0 out of 5 stars The martial art of communication! 7 Oct 2007
By N Lyle
Don't let the term Neuro Linguistic Programming put you off the idea of learning about this amazing subject. NLP is literally the martial art of communication and this book is a first class introduction.

Everyone can benefit from NLP, either in their career or personal life. NLP is actually a whole range of tools and mental processes that enable one to develop the skills for understanding people more clearly and also how to influence others. Some of the techniques in this book are extremely powerful, you will discover a lot about yourself as you learn!

The book is clearly written and avoids too much jargon. The authors also have a sense of humour!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well set out introduction 9 Nov 2002
By Colin
Is NLP useful for most people? Answer - yes. Is it perfect - No. Which book should you get? Of all the many books on NLP at an introductory level, I would suggest this is the second best (NLP: The New Technology of Achievement 1st). It is quite a good book and much better than the majority. If you come from a business background, Sue Knight`s books might be more appropriate. Otherwise it is a good choice. Certainly it is much better than the others by the same authors.
If you want a more in depth understanding, books by Michael Hall or Robert Dilts offer a more up to date look at what is happening in this field.

I have read half-way through this book so far...
Since I began utilising some of the advice in the book in every day circumstances, both at work and at home...I have learnt more about myself and how to interact with people more positively.
Already, I have managed to discuss complex emotional issues with my partner without becoming over-emotional where normally we would have argued for days.
That aside, I felt this introduction was well-paced and brought the subject closer to new readers. The only thing it lacked was clarity in using the examples in everyday life and there was too much information to take in all at once. More exercises would have been useful. Apart from that, the material made sure that the reader's intentions were just and that their new skills would not be used in a negative or hurtful way. It was definitely a balanced first step in discussing the subject.
