I'm a lawyer and mediator. I represent businesses in disputes with their insurers and in other complex litigation. I also assist machinery companies and manufacturers (primarily international) with equipment sales, non-disclosure agreements, and business issues. I also mediate commercial disputes.
There is some good information here, but overall I think the book is a little flat. It is all about succeeding as an employee, so if you are looking for a more over-arching view of NLP, this may be only part of what you are looking for.
I don't think the narrator was the issue here.
This book was like listening to the song that never ends. Despite its title, the book professes at the beginning that it will not teach the concepts of NLP necessary to understand what it's trying to accomplish. For the rest of what I could actually stand to listen to, the book talks in circles, never actually getting to the meat of the matter. My guess is the author had about 3 paragraphs worth of stuff and figured no one would buy something that short, so he added hours of padding. I bet in school, his essays had the words "very, very, very, very... " in a lot of sentences. I bought it with a subscription credit, which means that I spent $11 on what was essentially a poorly written pamphlet.
With job security at an all time low, this is a great audio for anyone at any level of a company. Learning to handle conflict, work with others, understand body language, communicate effectively, and gain influencing skills are important ways to make you a valuable asset to your company. If you're not familiar with the NLP approach, it's a perfect way to learn to change your behavior and your mindset. I highly recommend this audio book.
In the second category, which I consider informative useful useful but not top of the top.
I would recommend this someone with Asperger's syndrome. It is chock full of obvious statements that the average person already knows.
A few crappy books more like this and I will cancel my subscription to audible. I want my money back!
"the narrator disappoints"
This is the first time I have felt that a narrator ruined a book. Why pick an American when the author is British? He stumbles over half of the expressions. Why not find a narrator who is enthusiastic and dynamic rather than one who reads in a dull monotone? Truly disappointing to listen to. I can't rate the book itself because I can't get through the recording.
interesting premise spoiled by irritating narration - shame
"good over view of NLP"
This is a great book about NLP. If you are interested in NLP or personal development. Highly recommended.
"Well maybe 3 and a half stars"
It's over 5 hours so loads of content. Good value. Having looked at the other NLP books I think this could one of the better ones.
Knowing what I know now, I'd buy it again
