7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By P. Giancarlo on 13 Mar. 2008
Format: Paperback
I bought this book 9 years ago, when I was about to re-enter ESL teaching, beginning in the Czech Republic. I taught at a school where a holistic approach to teaching was the norm, and this book was invaluable. It is practical, with activities to try, and also theoretical, so that you learn about NLP while teaching. I still pull it out when I am seeking inspiration. It is written in a very approachable style. There are some lovely stories in this book, which I have used for reading practice. A fun addition to your teaching library.

NLP for English teachers, but ok for anyone 7 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book give a very good introduction to NLP techniques, the aim of which is to use in the English (as a foreign language)classroom but I find the simple techniques useful for myself. Not like other "self-help" books, as it lacks the hype. Anyone who works with students, or perhaps therapy of any kind will find it helpful and inspiring.
rapport 6 Jan. 2011
By Stephen Pellerine - Published on
Format: Paperback
I think that the two review here, as of January 2011, are what I would expect to see here. I understand both sides but lean towards the higher end.

I think that after having taken a couple of formal professional development courses in NLP for TESOL that I can appreciate what the goals are and why. I used these ideas in Japan a lot, the ideas the 1 star reviewer refers to and my students loved it. They were truly riveted in authentic communication as the activities do ask a lot of deep personal questions - ones that would be addressed in self-help books. Such tasks stimulate personal involvement. Seriously meaningful discourse was the result and a lot of inner-class rapport building. I have also used some of the ideas in the Middle East at a Men's Technical College, and they enjoyed discussing the meanings behind the listening as a puzzle - and got better at it, deciphering the metaphors within.

So, for me - an easy 5. If you have not played with NLP as an ELT I would also suggest having a look, and if the book is coming with a CD or Cassettes the heavy price tag is more justifiable than if not.

Love it. The best thing is the level of rapport that can be developed.

out of my hands - into the hands of the used bookstore 14 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Are you a Leo Buscaglia fan? Are you stimulated by books such as Life Strategies, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, or Take Time for Your Life? Do you think Oprah is an intellectual giant? If so, this is just your cup of tea.
For the rest of us, this book is not worth the time. It claims to explain how NLP techniques can be used in the ESL (ELT) classroom. What is NLP? Sorry to be so blunt, but to me, NLP is nothing but overblown self-help. I looked over two other books on NLP, and found nothing but generalities and a lot of nonsense. And they actually hold conferences on this stuff!
This book is filled with quotes and anecdotes I've already heard hundreds of times before. With the exception of a couple of exercises, everything in this book is obvious and too vague to be of any help. I've read many other books on ESL and this is by far the worst.
Want to read something really inspiring on ESL (ELT)? Try Learning Teaching by Jim Scrivener. Try A Course in Language Teaching by Penny Ur. These two books are much better than In Your Hands.
