Easy and quick read, while being very informative at the same time. I loved the summaries of different techniques used during the book at the end, making it easy to keep doing them over and over again if needed. Very good book, would definitely recommend to anyone interested in NLP.

I can understand why this would be a good introduction to NLP for some people. However, I found the format - the story of a day at an NLP seminar - not the best format for me. It's good to read through once, but then move on to better, more meatier books such as the NLP workbook.

Having read this book cover to cover in a day, I have to say that in my opinion it is as it says on the title "The ultimate introduction to Nlp". This book is free flowing, easy reading, beautifully compacted and full of "Ah so that's why I get that feeling!" Moments and I highly recommend it to anyone that might be curious about NLP!

This book is much shorter than it appears due to the alignment of the text. On top of this, the actual nlp content felt lightweight and oversimplified. The narrative vehicle used to introduce the material didn't work either.

All in all a bit disappointed

The only con for me was - the style it is written in.. having said that, if you like stories and don't need it for research, you won't mind it, for me it made the book come across as less serious.

BUT, the tips are good. Not many, but the ones that are covered there are explained very well.

The emphasis here lies heavily on the word 'introduction'. All the relevant information in this book is summarised in the bullet points in its last chapter; this is really all you need read, since the rest of the book is, in my personal opinion, only filler material, written in a simplistic and patronising format.
The style might work well for others, but I found it frustrating to keep hearing about the delighted reactions of the audience and the easily impressed narrator. When, for example, I was unable to instantly conjure feelings of euphoria by summoning a happy memory and "spinning it around", it was aggravating and off-putting to read how an entire room of people could achieve this effortlessly, and how fantastically ingenious the narrator found it.
I don't doubt these techniques can be highly effective, but exaggerating those effects to the point of making them look magical, and dismissing the effort required to actually create a happy state (at least for people with chronic low mood/depression) was a big turn-off for me.

i've only read a small amount but it's style is infantile - its very hard to focus on anything as the story wrapper is so facile

- i'll keep reading and update but i fear it is unreadable

however it's my fault entirely for not downloading a sample to read first - lesson1 !

For me, this book explained so many concepts of NLP easily and clearly and brought the concepts to life and they worked. I will definitely be buying more books on this subject by these authors and attend a workshop or two!!
