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"

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.

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.

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.

THE BEST !!!

An Amazing book, audio is great as well, read by Tom. It is a blessing that the authors are so passionate about a Metaphysical practice, that beautifully explains how "MIND" (metaphysical) is what is being studied, and the physical is an expression of MIND. KNOW SELF(MIND)✌🏾💪🏾✊🏾💯🇬🇳🇬🇳🇲🇱

What is wrong with the speed?

This is a useful book, and I’m enjoying the content, but the recording speed keeps changing and it’s very distracting. I’m switching to a paper version.

Most disappointing book I've purchased

In short: if you're going to write a trashy self-help book, don't give it an academic-sounding title.

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.

Best NLP resource I've found so far.

I initially approached this for professional reasons. I'd undertaken a diploma for hypnotherapy, and felt an understanding of NLP would give me an insight into the 'why' of treatments, rather than just the how. What I discovered, to my delight was that this resource-rich book was not only clear, direct and accessible, but encouraged and initiated personal insights, discoveries and provided techniques which helped me address issues myself. After completing the main body of the text, I feel not only more qualified to engage in practical psychology, but personally empowered also. If you're interested in learning the operating system for the human mind, how to create inner-congruence, banish negative and intrusive thoughts, smooth relationships, help people understand and address deep-seated issues, understand the mechanisms behind many of the mental health problems plaguing society today, and even become effective at negotiations, this book is for you. Great narrator, too. I bought both the kindle and Audible versions and read along so that I could absorb and highlight information. This increased my information retention manyfold, so I'd recommend that.

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.

Straight forward NLP basics guide

Some NLP material is so cringe worthy I can't pay attention. Tom, Tom and Susan have authored this straight forward guide describing mental techniques to achieve your goals, be it feeling good and overcoming inner gremlins or career or persuasiveness. Much of the book is teaching by example, I found the balance of stories to techniques description about right. Looking for a more in depth text for the next read...

Some helpful tools

Narration was clear which is great as I can struggle sometimes. Interesting enough content, purchased to compliment my hypnotherapy practice so nothing totally revolutionary for me but certainly some nice techniques I've made note of.
