5.0 out of 5 stars Condensed, concise & Excellent 27 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is one of the best "beginners books" I ever read on the Topic. It's easy to read and gives you a good, concise and very interesting introduction to the principles of NLP. If you are curious on the subject, I strongly recommend you to buy it . Investment some hours in getting very valuable knowledge on the human mind and simple ways to empower yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point. 16 April 2000
By Colin
Format:Paperback
A well organised book. If you haven`t come across NLP before this would be a good starting point. NLP: the new technology of achievement by NLP comprehensive is slightly more advanced but extremely good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gateway to NLP 11 April 2000
By George Zee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars a nice "executive summary" on NLP 25 Jun 2000
By Anthony Padgett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A very, very good basic introduction to NLP. This book is good for those who want an "executive summary" of the basic principles of NLP. It doesn't go into the techniques. Just enough to help you decide if NLP is right for you. If you want to get into basic techniques, best to skip this one and go right into "An Introduction to NLP."

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Yet Concise Intro 19 Sep 2005
By warcon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this after "NLP for Dummies" (Worst NLP book Ever)and by contrast, this book was written by someone who actually knew something! I really liked that it covers so many areas and lays it out in perfect organization. It can be read fairly quickly, yet you will want to use it often as a reference for the good stuff.

I find NLP to be a fascinating, fun, and useful topic of study. But you can't be an overly cynical person and appreciate NLP. It really appeals to that fun, child-like curiousity about the workings of the people and the world. If nothing else it will make you much more observant of other people's behavior and help you understand and deal with them.

I think the real usefulness of NLP is that it begins to get you in the habit of noticing and thinking about more things in everyday life. Now you can turn any excruciatingly boring conversation into an opportunity to analyse and experiment with some techniques! But beware of becoming one of those people that is constantly, covertly analyzing people while they are talking to you, it may be considered rude.

However, I am surprised they are still including "eye-accessing cues" in NLP books. I think that has been proven inconclusive (and tedious!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Condenses a tough subject 20 Mar 2002
By Layla Halabi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a short and precise introductory text to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). That is probably the book's main strength - the fact that is short and that it condenses the topic very well. However, I did not find this book to be an easy read because somehow, the topic seemed scattered and not well defined. It failed to provide a usable framework to structure the material with the result that it seemed that one page of text after another, none of which taking me anywhere.
However, by the end of the book, you have a reasonable idea of what NLP even if it seems a little jumbled and mixed-up!
