Useful as an introduction,useful links are provided in the end
I was looking for an introduction to NLP. This did not give me the introduction I sought.
1) It is not clear who the audience is. At some points the authors are writing for new practioners and at other points for NLP trainers.
2) The text is not well edited. It gave the feeling of having been spell checked but not proof read. There were too many times I had to re-read a sentence which read, for example, "on" instead of "in."
3) The book boasted of many case studies which suggests third person and clinical examples. The cases studies were from the authors' personal experiences and too often were weak or did not support the points being made.
4) Almost finally, I hated the incessant lists. Since this was my first NLP book, I don't know if list making is inherent in NLP, but there was a list for everything. The exercises also seemed painfully naive to me, but I did not try them because I was not convinced by the authors that they were anything more than ... hate to say it...but trite.
5) The book's references had a psuedo academic feel to it, no doubt to enhance its own legitamacy, but in fact it seemed a little ridiculous. This was an introductory book.
I will keep looking for a better NLP introductory book.
This would not have been an easy book to write. The author, Amanda Vickers, seems to be quite capable of breaking the concepts down into bite-sized pieces that I find digestible.
Armed with this basic understanding, I find myself much more prepared to enter into specific works of NLP.
Who knows, perhaps I'll be a Tony Robbins and make a name with my own take on NLP.
In overall, you can definitely make good use of this book in your life, personal or professional, and see the benefits of the well presented techniques.
