Review

"The 'User's Manual For The Brain' by Bob and Michael is the best NLP manual ever written so far." --Fausto S. Izcaray, PhD.<br /><br />As a practitioner of N.L.P I was delighted to read this book. Having trained in the early eighties and developed many of my own strategies in true NLP fashion it was both refreshing and affirming to return to the ideas that have influenced how I train others to work so effectively in A Quiet Place today. It was like meeting old relatives that you have forgotten about and remembering their influence affectionately.The User s Manual for the Brain is a practical training text book filled to the brim with ideas and exercises to use in a wide variety of situationsThe foundations of NLP are both skilfully explained and easy to understand. A step by step guide to learning and practising the tools of NLP that anyone can follow and for people like myself a reminder of the process and content and inspiration that is NLP. Clear examples of the techniques and application to a wide range of arenas make this a significant book, invaluable for anyone seriously interested in empowering effective change in people. I will be delighted to place it on our training book list for those of our practitioners who are interested in exploring further. So thank you NLP and authors. --Penelope Moon CEO A Quiet Place

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction & reference guide 3 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Bodenhammer and Hall's book has a clear and concise manner, is easy to read and it helped me through some of the more complex concepts which other books hadn't managed to clear up for me. They do depart from the 'conventional' NLP wisdom in places, and, given their explanations, I can see why. I would have liked a bit more on Time-Lining (one chapter is given), as this doesn't add much to Tad James' Time Line Therapy stuff. However, I know it's a book I will refer to much- overall, one of my best NLP-related purchases.

2.0 out of 5 stars SILLY AND PATRONIZING 1 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
This book contains, in those parts where it deals with practical application, some useful detail; and one comes away from the book with the feeling that Bodenhamer and Hall are probably really nice people. This is not enough, however, to justify its price tag, because this book has also many flaws.

The first of these is common to many books on NLP. It adopts a facetious, patronizing style that seems to imply that the authors believe their readers to be extremely simple, very young or mentally retarded. For a book that markets itself as an NLP practitioner's handbook this is somewhat surprising. The text is littered with those cheeky, head-ruffling comments: `Oops, we did it to you again!' `If you fear your fear, guess what? You become paranoid!' (Please!) Or, when you apply the meta-level of appreciation to fear, `What do you get? You sure don't get paranoia, do you?'

This kind of silly writing inhibits the intelligent appreciation of the content, but this is further aggravated by the constant use of italics and bold type. Presumably the authors believe themselves to be using embedded commands of some sort to facilitate learning. The net result, however, is to make the reader feel he is reading a Marvel comic. I even came across one word where half the letters were bold and the other half italics. This really is too silly or words. The combination of bold type, italics and facetious, patronizing quips makes this book a very difficult read.

But there are two further flaws that, had I not spent almost £30 on the book, would have made me put it down and stop reading for good. On the one hand there is the appalling tendency to repeat and repeat the most simple of facts in order to drive home the most simple of lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improve your life 15 Nov 2002
By Devlin
Format:Hardcover
Before you can effectively use anything, you need to know how it works, and the brain is no exception!.
This book should be on your shelf, whether you want to be a NLP Practioner, cure yourself of phobias/fears!, or just find out when your Uncle Ted is telling fibs!.
The book covers all the main techniques of NLP- establishing rapport, Dissociating fear, analysing language etc, and you'll find yourself refering to it time after time.
