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:

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

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.

Am busy reading at the moment. Excellent book about Neuro Linguistic Programming, the way we think, how to communicate in every way possible. Excellence of the individual. Well worth reading.

Sue's book on NLP is extensive, covers all the basics of NLP and then some. I've attended one of her courses and read this book before attending the second course. I'm really glad I got to practice and learn NLP. The book is filled with examples and stories that help elaborate the theory. It is not light reading, especially because of the excercises that are added to each of the chapters. A definite recommendation for anyone looking to identify and change their own and others limiting beliefs!

This is practical and there are some insights into how to work with others and there are things that you can work on. It's a bit difficult as a read on the commute as you can't actually sit and practice most of it. I've gained some insights but I don't think that I really absorbed much. Interesting read and I'll be looking more into NLP.

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. NLP is based on the principle that if you take someone who is skilled at something and study how they do it in every detail you can become just as good at it. An example is someone was always ...more

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.
