    A lot of filler. Still, there is a lot to take away, such as the idea of anchors (which can improve your mood), how to build rapport with word types (VAKOG) and storytelling, and reducing the intensity of a bad memory's pain. I can now see why many criticize NLP for trying too hard to sound scientific i.e. it uses a lot of big words for a simple idea for which we already have words.

For example, the colour of an object is a sub-modality of the vision modality. Oh brother. A useful book nonetheless. It is better than other NLP books I've read. Feel free to check my bookshelf called NLP.

    You can bash NLP, or you can use it to improve your life, your communication skills and your understanding of others. It's a tool, nothing more nothing less. And I doubt the self-righteous fun of bashing brings you more than improvement in any part of your life would.

    An OK introduction to the topic. More therapeutic and personal development or communication oriented.

    NLP is more or less just more "self help" pseudo-science. It sounds highly technical, but the name is misleading, bordering on fraudulent. It may have originated with some scientific bases, but those have long since evaporated. There are no scientific studies to back any of the miraculous claims. That's not to say it's total charlatanry, though.

I'm disappointed because this sounded interesting, but it belongs on the Dr. Phil shelf.

    The Dummies books are designed to be dipped into at random, but I found the lack of an overarching structure and repetition frustrating. Based on the book, it seems that there isn't a single unifying concept, but a selection on unrelated tools. The analogy of a toolbox used in one chapter seems apt. Some of the concepts and ideas will, I'm sure, prove useful, but to grasp NLP I think a more coherent book will be needed.

    I wasn't expecting to find NLP particularly interesting. In fact, I thought it would be rather creepy (how to manipulate others to do what you want sleazy salesman stuff), and although it is clear that some people could apply it in that manner, it is only a small part of NLP. On the whole, the use of the imagination as a tool in NLP is quite fascinating.

    This book gives a good basic understanding of what NPL is, why its important, and how it can be useful to help you improve your communication skills. Those are some important highlights that sum up the most important ideas of the book in my opinion: - NLP, as it’s commonly referred to, is the study of how we understand and experience the world around us. - Internal Representation: Our perspective is unique to us because what we experience gets filtered by a number of things.

Those are some important highlights that sum up the most important ideas of the book in my opinion: - NLP, as it’s commonly referred to, is the study of how we understand and experience the world around us. - Internal Representation: Our perspective is unique to us because what we experience gets filtered by a number of things. This is why 2 people experience the same thing one loves the other hates it. - Nonverbal communication made up 55 percent of an effective, impactful conversation. - Matching and mirroring: To build rapport find the rhythm of the conversation and be in sync with the person you’re talking to. - Storytelling: People react differently to stories than they do to standard arguments., because a good story taps into memories and emotions. - Anchor: sensitive information that puts you in some emotional state, it can be a memory, a smell, etc... You can create new, positive anchors that can help you get through difficult situations. - Deletion represents the fact that we’re usually leaving certain things out when we’re explaining ourselves. - Generalization refers to how we’re often vague or unspecific in details and tend to extrapolate the outcome of one situation and apply them to another. - Distortion means misinterpreting events around you. For example, if your boss doesn’t greet you in the hallway and you immediately conclude that she hates you

    My first 'for dummies' read. I'd been very unsure about getting into NLP but as a coach it presented as another tool in the kit so I decided to give it a go. In the early chapters there's a lot of content that really resonated and I found myself rhapsoding to long-suffering husband on our lockdown walks. I latched on to anchoring and threw an exercise, untested, into a coaching session, where it kinda sunk...

I latched on to anchoring and threw an exercise, untested, into a coaching session, where it kinda sunk... There are some great tips for presenting and building rapport, but there were also parts that were too much of a stretch for me such as modalities. After the first half it became a bit of a slog. There are some nice anecdotes and illustrations but a lot also seemed like common sense to anyone with vague coaching training. Overall not a bad read, but I would that there were something shorter!

After reading the book, I feel like I do know enough about NLP to do something with it and I have enough background to find out new books should I want to go further with the topic. And I guess that's exactly what the goal of this book is.

    There are several editions of this book out there, including an audio book. Forget the rest, this one by Romilla Ready is the one to get. This will open up the world of Neuro Linguistic Programming and isn't one of those books aimed at just "dominating at work" or other nonsense. If you are serious about understanding the inner workings of the human mind, try this edition out.

    This book was my introduction to NLP. Definitely one of those subjects that you could either dismiss or look into and see what comes out of it. I found some of the exercises to be somewhat helpful in getting me to think about things differently.

    I found this informative on the subject of how the brain deals with sensory information, how it filters this information and how the brain can get stuck on ideas and emotions. While I have no tried any of the therapies I can see how they might work.

    Airport purchase I found in the back of a shelf... The book actually is not so bad at giving an overview of this strange field. One day I hope to find a NLP book that refers to the actual research underlying some of its ideas - it really seems like a hodgepodge of fact/fiction...

    Let's just say I was glad to be finished with this one. It seemed like a good introduction to me, but I guess I already had been exposed to a lot of NLP in other places, because an awful lot of this was stuff with which I was quite familiar, and I found a lot of the examples tedious, because they didn't relate to my situation very well. If you don't know about NLP or are looking to work on things in an office environment, this might be more useful for you.

    I stumbled across this while searching for something else and all I could think of was Juanita saying that she could hack the brainstem near the end of Snow Crash. But apparently this is about something else entirely (unsurprisingly).

    The book provided a really great series of exercise, anecdotes, and frameworks for how to develop yourself into a better communicator. The book was constantly referencing other portions of the book which made me wonder if it couldn't have been written in a more straightforward manner. Definitely a very good text for understanding HOW to improve in many aspects.

    Portuguese translation is awful, looks like it used Google Translator. Content is ok, it makes some good points, but I would have liked a little less dummy. In my opinion this a subject where practical training is needed, so reading a book will only give you the gist.

    A well written book for introduction to NLP. I enjoyed the read. The last few sections of the book i skipped as they were like top ten lists and uses for NLP. Overall, the info is basic, but it gives you a great starting point into NLP.

    A good grounding in NLP, I blow hot and cold on self help sometimes I think it's great other times I just think it's snake oil, this was ok though second hand on ebay, I wouldn't pay full price for it though

    I read this as a prerequisite to a course I was taking & found it very insightful. I learned a set of state-of-the-art skills to use in all areas of communication - both personally and professionally.

    This book helps you understand the premise for NLP, without presenting any evidence (if any substantial body of evidence exists) for any of it. Interesting nonetheless, how much of the concepts described has permeated public speaking, podcasting and other self help information.

    Kind of bought into NLP hype when this book came out. It wasn't even interesting. Nowadays it's considered bogus science.

    An easy and informative read. It was geared to more basic levels of NLP, but sets a nice foundation for someone looking to expand on it through a workshop or course.
