Sorry, but this is a poor book!
on 21 July 2008
I was hoping for a good introduction to NLP, and I suppose to complete newcomers to the personal development idiom this book would be an interesting and stimulating read.
But NLP? Not really... it's a very confused text, glossing over the fundamentals of NLP and introducing extraneous mysticism (chakras?) and other unwelcome self-help tosh, which is exactly what I was hoping to avoid. The author also seems a little confused as to her audience. The main part of the book is clearly aimed at personal (i.e. private) development, but then suddenly a chapter appears on feedback, which is very clearly business-focused.
I found the general thread of the book to be confused, slightly patronising, and full of the sort of fluffy and ill-explained language which plagues the majority of personal development books.
Or am I just in the "Grey Zone"??
