NLP has always been based on what WORKS - as established by good old fashioned trial and error - rather than chasing the latest theory. Not surprisingly, then, that has meant that NLP has changed very little over the last couple of decades. Which is why this book still represents an excellent INTRODUCTION to NLP as a whole.
Of course the founders of NLP have now gone off in their own directions - Bandler into DHE(tm) (Design Human Engineering), and Grinder into "New Code NLP" (loosely based on the work of Carlos Castenada and others).
Perhaps equally naturally, they both say they've moved on from what they started out with, but that doesn't rule out, per se, the value of their early work because it was so firmly rooted in EXPERIENCE.
Bandler, for example, now seems to be playing down the concepts of "parts" and the "6 step reframe".
All well and good.
But NLP is about WHAT WORKS FOR *YOU*, and for plenty of other people all this stuff about "parts" (originally derived from the work of Virginia Satir) still works just fine.
So, the long and short of it is, whilst it certainly isn't at the 'bleeding edge', this is still one of the leading INTRODUCTIONs to NLP.
In fact I'd say it is still Number 1.
Learn about subconscious communication which may help you rethink some of the things you say in order to deliver the intended message or to read what others are thinking. This requires a little practice and understand of verbal negation.
Discover a model which I can only describe as a model for inner peace. No, it does not tell you how to do this, it may not even describe it as inner peace but if you have knowledge about happiness philosophy it will make sense. Read the chapter on congruency, I find it inspiring.Read more ›
Needs further reading to understand practical applications of techniques described therein...the NLP workbook by the same author is a good follow up text.
This book is a good precursor to The Structure of Magic and Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. both by Richard Bandler and John Grinder -- which go much more indepth into the linguistic portions of the NLP model.
cookbook full of many different NLP recipies.
For NLP beginners, it's a great place to start. For those
with more experience, it makes a nice motivator and
