Short Course on NLP.

This book is like an 11 hour course on NLP. If you’re considering studying this subject, but not ready to commit to coursework or formal study, this book will provide you with a great foundation, practical examples, & discovery activities to enable you to sample & implement NLP techniques into your life immediately.

Worth every minute. Highly recommend.

Felt like I was learning from someone with true knowledge and profound experience. An introduction to NLP but the authors go in depth all the time. Just finished the book and I am going straight back to chapter 1 again. I feel like I just made a wonderful investment of time and money buying and reading this book.

Stop plugging

after the 5th chapter of you trying to direct people to your website I had to turn it off and buy a different NLP book. So distracting when all you can think in the back of your head is "look how hard this schmuck is trying to get me to his website, must be desperate"

mental images

I finally understood what a belief is, how they are created and how to change them.
I began to use the practices in this book to change the mental image and voice that is my mind, to back my actions.
since listening to this book attentively, I became a more social person my understanding my old thought patterns and changing my state.

MY FAVORITE NLP BOOK, AWESOME, INSPIRING, LOVELY!!

I AM A CERTIFIED NLP MASTER PRACTITIONER. I TOOK MY NLP COURSES INTENDING TO LEARN ABOUT MY OWN SELF. TO TRULY UNDERSTAND MYSELF, TO BE A MASTER OF MYSELF. THIS BOOK IS SIMPLY AMAZING!!! OVER THE YEARS I HAVE PURCHASED AT LEAST TWELVE UNIQUE NLP BOOKS. THIS BOOK IS THE AUDIBLE BOOK I LISTEN TO WHEN I SLEEP, DO BUSYWORK, AND RELAX, AND MEDITATE. TOM DOTZ NARRATES IT HIMSELF. I ALSO HAVE THE PHYSICAL BOOK AND THE KINDLE VERSION. TOM ALSO DID AN NLP INTERVIEW ON GAIAM, WHERE HE MENTIONS HIS WEBSITE THAT IS DESIGNED TO GO HAND IN HAND WITH THE BOOK, WITH EXPLANATORY NLP VIDEOS ETC. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ESSENTIAL HANDBOOK FOR ALL WHO ARE CURIOUS ABOUT NLP, & THOSE WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH NLP FROM BEGINNERS TO PRACTIONERS, TO NLP MASTERS. YOU WILL LEARN SOMETHING!!! `I AM VERY THANKFUL THIS BOOK EXISTS.

Full of valuable skills, NLP Essential Guide helps you be better and happier

This book has tremendous value because it describes important life skills that can improve your life significantly. I am a certified project manager so I am very knowledgeable about achieving results, however I was fascinated in learning about the skill called a well formed outcome and its subset called the ecology of the outcome because in a simple way helps an individual or group describe their desired result. Another important skill is the ability to work through difficult conflicts not only with other people but also within yourself. If you want to learn how to manage a difficult memory, this book will show you a simple technique for disassociating yourself from it. It also comes with an implementation guide to cement your skills. Have fun.

Says it’s for beginners but nope

Way over the top for beginners. Never made it through as I quickly became discouraged.

Incredibly intelligent content

Lots of useful technics to enhance and improve our lives. From everyday events to big goals. The audio makes me fall asleep, though. I guess it’s because the content gets kind of complex to follow through sometimes and the voice is kind of hypnotic. Like a grandpa telling a bedtime story. I really like this book anyways!

Great!!

Narrator got a pleasant voice to listen to. Explanations are detailed and we'll explained. I love the fact that there are examples and task that one can use as reference on the website for self help purposes. This book really have me a new insight into NLP and tips and tricks to use dayly for my self and on others to improve on. I did experience a issue with speed and narration tone on a few places but it did not impact on the overall experience that I got. I definitely recommend this book

Excellent book

I've read various web articles about NLP and watched plenty of videos online. this book far exceeded my expectations. there's also an accompanying website with plenty of videos and articles which reiterate the content.

Good Book with video tutorial links

This is a great refresher for someone who has already studied NLP, the website tutorials add that extra dimension of learning. You do need to go through it a few times and practice some of the exercises to fully understand the concepts of NLP. Its also great for someone who is new to NLP, as its covers most of the subjects on an NLP course, this will give you a good understanding of the principles of NLP and how to change your thinking, which in turn can change your life. This book allows us to appreciate a greater and deeper perspective of human behaviour

Slow start. Gets better

Starts very slow, but then makes really good points later. Worth hanging in there if you're funding it tough going.
