It's all about the Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Bitches!
I have studied NLP at what I guess you'd say is an intermediate level, first with Landmark Education and then with Christopher Howard. However in the courses I've done, there hasn't been a lot of theory. There's not actually a lot of acknowledgment among the new-thought, self-help gurus that their teachings are rooted in NLP principles and a school of psychology that seems to have come out of Santa Cruz. Formation of this body of knowledge involved, but did not begin with, Milton Erickson and hi ...more
There is definitely some valuable content in here, if you can wade through the poor writing, the constant self-promotion, and the cheesy self-help styling.

A great book full of practical advices and techniques of achieving a better self. Definitely would recommend it to anyone who needs a minor or major change in his/her life. Definitely an appreciating and approving thumbs up for that book.
I am an NLP Practioner and I was a practicing Life Coach a few years ago. This was the book I used for my training. It's awesome!
I bought this book after seeing some videos online by Steve Andreas and being very impressed by his sincerity. The same sincerity comes through in NLP: The New Technology of Achievement. The other members of the writing team include Charles Faulkner and Suzi Smith, and along with several others they comprised the NLP Comprehensive Training Team based in Colarado in the United States.

The book covers all of the basics of NLP including submodalities, rapport, mission, values, and perceptual positio

This definitely took me a while to complete. It was my second attempt and I'm glad that I managed to get through the book. It's one of the few books that I need to re-read again to fully benefit from everything that was preached.

The little I've learned has been extremely beneficial. It's helped me re-frame conversations (esp. with my fiance) and when I find myself in conflict I'm definitely going to re-frame how I think using the techniques advised.

I highly recommend reading this book -- especia
Neuro-linguistic programming - cognitive change can be fast and impactfull. Change how you think about thinking. Lots of exercises to go along with theory.

Self help book, concept just grips a hold on why we do the things we do

This is book is somewhat technical, but if you have a good grasp on the impact of subconscious motivation and habit-based behavior, it is hugely valuable. This is a starter book for understanding and applying NLP. Even if you don't grasp the full scope of the book, there are several simply activities in the book you can complete that help in dealing with simple or common negative thoughts, attitudes or behaviors.

Quite amazing. But practice takes time.

This is my first book on NLP and I really liked it. It's written in a very simple style but it goes to the core and covers all the basic of NLP.

To me, this book is a great starting point if you want to reprogram your mind along with your life and your goals. The exercises can really change your way to see your future or your present condition, simply like that. Mind is our most powerful tool and we should learn to use it.

I love NLP & the work of the authors in the field. I just find NLP books very dry & this is no exception I'm afraid. It's like trying to learn to swim by reading a book-you really need to get into the pool.
I learned about NLP via Anthony Robbins' book "Awaken the Giant Within." I appreciated his strategies for success, not just the hype of positive affirmations. This is my first in-depth book about NLP, and unfortunately, I had to read this one as an audio CD, not my preference.
Good into book for NLP, gets a little boring with all the workshops and practices, but over all I thought the book was very useful. Just not in the way that I had imagined it would be.

Bom livro para quem tiver curiosidade sobre Programação Neuro Linguística. Introduz as bases e através de exercícios demonstra algumas aplicações.

Recommendable for people who seek lots of mental exercises to improve on the habits of their subconscious mind and consequently alter their lives.
