By Rachel Green VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a pretty good book. It won't cure whatever your problem is in a week and it won't put any NLP professionals out of a job but with patience and a bit of trust in yourself it really will help. I'm using it to help me lose weight and I really am losing it -- just by training myself not to want certain foods (in my case white bread and crisps).

My only gripe with it would be the way it's set out. It has seven secions titled 'Sunday' to 'Saturday' and I kept missing Sunday to start the book. Somehow it didn;tseem right to start the 'Sunday' chapter on tuesday. @Day one', 'Day two' etc would have been better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview, but not a full course 21 Sep 2012
By M. Bhangal TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a slim book, divided into seven chapters, and if you read the book as intended (one chapter a day), you will have got through the content in a week. You could easily get through it as a lunchtime read.

The book will give you a good overview of terminology and process, but it is a bit short on practical exercises. For example, if you want to use NLP to become a better manager, you will get a good overview of the tools to use, but won't be given specific tried and tested steps for (say) handling a difficult employee. Similarly, if you want to stop smoking, you will get an impression of why you smoke and what tools would be useful to stop, but you will not know enough to come away with a specific set of exercises you would use to wean yourself off.

Nevertheless, this book is a good introduction, and is useful as a primer for those considering getting deeper into the subject.

By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Teach yourself NLP in a week! Get right outta town! Yet this is pretty much what Mo Sahpiro does with clear summaries of the major features of NLP, one block per day. Each block is a few pages with explanation, uses and a check-list for testing yourself. Clearly, this is not an attempt to exhaust the subject, it is an introduction, but I was impressed by how much was included. It is not therefore an attempt to treat individual problems, it describes the vocabulary and the techniques. If you want to apply it "at the coal face" you'll want to do some further work.

Of course I am just a casual user of NLP techniques and others, more expert, may have different views but as a primer and an aide-memoire this is most impressive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant introduction to NLP 11 May 2012
By J. Bonner VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having previously been on a 2-day NLP Diploma course, I already knew the basics so this slim volume didn't teach me anything I didn't already know. However, for someone who's never heard of NLP (most people, from the conversations I've had!) it's an excellent introduction to the subject at a low price. All the main points are covered clearly, with examples of how they might apply in real-life situations, plus each chapter helpfully has an introduction, summary and a set of questions to check your understanding of what you've read.

The days are set out like this:

Sunday - What is NLP?
Monday - Identifying empowering and limiting beliefs
Tuesday - Recognise how we re-present information to ourselves
Wednesday - Use precision questions to find out what people mean
Thursday - Identify different communication filters
Friday - Use the six levels of change and reframing
Saturday - Increase your options

These titles don't make much sense here, but each concept is explained well and is easily applied to the individual and his/her situation. Anyone familiar with CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) will find a number of overlaps, eg self-limiting beliefs, distorted thinking.

I'd recommend NLP for Dummies and the associated NLP for Dummies Workbook, as well as attending a proper course (some are free but excellent). The only reason I've knocked a star off my rating of this book is because, for me, a week starts on a Monday and not a Sunday!

2.0 out of 5 stars Useful as a brief overview of NLP concepts 2 April 2012
By A. Gothorp VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A useful short introduction to the concepts of NLP. Used extensively in various forms in self help literature it is worth familiarising yourself with the base principles even if you decide not to pursue NLP any further.
All sections are very brief. A sitting of a few hours could see you complete this book. For example the meta model relating to asking precision questions looks very useful , however the section is far too brief for me to fully understand and implement the technique.
I don't believe this book can lead you to successful NLP but instead can give you an overview of the concepts in order for the reader to decide if they should buy another more in depth study of NLP.
Many concepts are delivered here but there is little or no guidance as to how you can use and implement the outlined concepts. As a newby to NLP I can relate much of the content to my study days when I covered cognitive psychology. The ideas look interesting and powerful but I need now to find a more in depth handling of the subject.
The blurb on the cover suggests: 'you can learn in a week, what the experts learn in a lifetime.' I have dropped another star for this patently untrue and misleading statement!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful little book 26 Mar 2012
By Alan J. Stedall VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book, by Mo Shapiro, a Master Practitioner in Neuo-Linguistic Programming (NLP), provides a concise primer to the field of NLP.

NLP was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the early 1970's. Bandler and Grindler found that those individuals considered outstanding performers in their own fields of expertise tended to share a set of common outlooks and thought processes, both about themselves and those around them; Bandler and Grindler deduced that, while certain beliefs and outlooks supported positive behaviours and led to positive outcomes in both personal and professional life, other alternative modes of thinking tended to be self-limiting and to pre-destine negative outcomes: To quote Henry Ford from the book: "Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're probably right".

The practice of applied NLP is founded on the belief that individuals can if they wish choose to "re-program" their internal assumptions and outlooks to modes that are more uplifting, de-limiting and re-inforce self-belief.

In just 121 easily read pages, Shapiro sets out the basics of NLP in an enjoyable form; not only describing the essential elements of the approach but also providing examples of when and how to apply the various techniques. The text is sprinkled with quite amusing cartoons that add light relief.

If you would like to perceive your personal and professional worlds through the prism of NLP, but like most of us you are short of time, then this is a great starter.
