4.0 out of 5 stars A teachers perspective, 12 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Persuasion Skills Black Book: Practical NLP Language Patterns for Getting The Response You Want (Paperback)
As a secondary school teacher I was looking for another selection of tools to add to my professional armoury and found some useful additions in this book.

The X is Y argument, Agreement frames (great with senior managers) and Pattern interruptions (especially good with 14 - 15 year olds `going off on one') are my favourites and they do work. However a word of warning, don't buy this book thinking it is the panacea or silver bullet you have been looking for. You get out what you are prepared to put in and in this case its practice.

Finally, I agree that in the written form NLP does, to some, appear to be little more than clumsy grammar but in the spoken form its very powerful and rarely detected. After all if someone was dictating your spoken dialogue word for word I doubt if it would translate into a grammatical master piece and this is why most NLP patterns go under the radar.

Hopes this helps others with their purchasing decision.
