This is the book that introduced me to Neuro-Linguistic Programing.(And made me study for a psychology degree six (6) years late)!

Sue Knight has the skill to simplify all the NLP aspects including modelling, maintaining rapport and perception. she uses practical examples, of which she generously dares to be among the examples, illustrating how she has applied NLP at work and in her marriage relationship and achieved logically incredible results.

To be honest, i love NLP at Work. It is a must read

The book I read to research this post was NLP At Work by Sue Knight which is an excellent book which I bought from a local secondhand bookstore. This book is very much a hands on guide to making the most of NLP or neuro linguistic programming with a slant towards towards using it in connection with work.

After having studied NLP for quite some time, including going through hands-on training programs under two very unique & different NLP Training Master Practitioners, I guess I can contribute a few thoughts about this book.

The 3 bits I loved:
- Very simple, easy to understand and put across in laymans terms
- Lots of examples, anecdotes, references and assignments given after every chapter
- Extremely detailed with nothing left to vagueness or skipped out

The 3 bits I didnt like:

Sue Knight is an exceptional teacher and inspiration for those of us in the NLP community. The latest edition of NLP at Work is a great improvement on the previous edition I owned. Many of the lessons have been made clearer and easier to implement. This edition shows that she continues to learn and to practice what she teaches. A great place to learn about NLP and to practice what you have learned.

Good book. It explains Neuro-Linguistic Programming in a practical way (with exercises and examples), giving advices that can be used in the business and in the daily life. I widely used this book for my dissertation and I just loved it! Suggested to whom is not a psychologist and wants to know more about NLP.

I am very fan of Sue Knight because she has presented the basic NLP information in a very unique and easy way. Then applied it to business and job. Great work. I highly recommend every professional to read this book.
