After more than 25 years, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)has not only avoided becoming a passing fad but continued to make substantial contributions to all walks of life. There are dozens, if not hundreds of books published on NLP in numerous languages. For the seriously interested, I usually recommend Joseph O'Connor and Jane Seymour's Introducing NLP. For those who want an initial understanding, the present book remains one of the best guides. So many people turn to NLP for quick techniques of change. The present book starts with the "Four Pillars of Wisdom": rapport, outcome, sensory acuity and flexibility in the context of the different logical levels: environment, behaviour, capability, belief, identity and spirituality. The authors rightly emphasize the very positive attitudes, the spirit or presuppositions underlying NLP. They have also succintly explained all the key concepts and repertoire of NLP: state, anchors, representational systems, eye accessing cues, submodalities, timelines, associated and dissociated states, modelling, strategies, beliefs and the different uses of language. Short of any opportunity for attending a NLP workshop, this book gives an excellent initiation.
