Happy to see the Richard Bandler is making NLP easier to understand , and I think this is first book that he has written this type .
The NLP processes are good and I have used them quite a bit, but this audio version simply got me motivated to buy other books. I don't use the audio as much as the books I bought, since I find it is really necessary to have the NLP processes written out to use them effectively. I found I wasn't able to process as fast as the audio goes through them. I did transcribe some of the processes and I have used them that way.
I was skeptical when I first began to listen to this book but it soon took me by surprise with the ready and concise steps delivered without any coy restraint on how to change your perspective by going through the mental exercises for the listener to try.
Before I knew it I was taking notes, going back and listening again. The techniques DO work and they ARE simple. They author is a genius who was blessed with the ability to relate his concepts without fluff or pomp. Well delivered by the narrator. I've heard the author speak and he's quite charismatic but the narrator did an excellent job of reading the book for him. Have already recommended it to family, which takes a lot of nerve, so the techniques must work!
I was a fan of Bandler once and I expected yet another brilliant and humourous lecture on whatever...instead there's a most boring summary of previous concepts and knowledge, read in the most uninteresting manner by a follower...Crappy work. Not worth paying 1$...
Is it just me or does the narrator's mock-cheerful voice make this audiobook hard to listen to right from the get-go? The way he swaggers through a description of rape and trauma in his compassionless Kasey Kasem voice took me out of the book completely. I really wanted this to be good. I did. But I don't feel the narrator does the author justice at ALL. Please consider that my review is based on the insincere impression the narrator has left on me and the fact that his voice rendered me unable to actually access the content of Bandler's work. I just wish I'd bought the actual book instead because I'm sure it's really very good.
i am not sure, i expected a much better delivery from this author. i value his expertise, but the audio is missing vital information from the book and pace and monotonic voice make it hard to follow through.
monotinic voice. Vital information missing from book. hard to follow concepts.
This is an easy lesson. Bandler breaks it down into astep-by-step process that is highly functional and very useful. Many other NLP books don't go into such great detail in such an easy-to-understand way.
