After listening to the audio edition, I ordered the full print book on Amazon. I am reading through it now... the audio version is abridged, and the print version does have more material. However, it appears that the key elements are included in this audio edition. If you are interested in the highlights/abridged material, this audio version is outstanding (I have actually listened to it a few times now). After listening to it, you can determine if you want more in depth material, and purchase the print version. So, I think the audio is a better buy as an introduction.
The material is very well organized, provides the information for understanding, then practical steps to apply the information.
The book is very informative, and it helped give me a desire to explore NLP more...:)
Intelligent, thought provoking and insightful. Definitely putting some of the methods into practice and benefiting from them. Have now bought more books on NLP.
The first half seems out of place until you reach the second half of the audiobook. I found it focused a bit too much on the self-affirmation side of things, but it did explain why they were relevant.
The second half focuses on Neural Linguistic Programming, while the beginning focuses on more general self-affirmation tricks. I bought this audiobook because I wanted to learn more about the inter-personal skills, which it took a while to get to.The reading was well done, and almost too smooth. I found myself almost tuning him out as I drove. I still gave him 4 stars on the reading.
If you are a totally self absorbed person then this book will help you. Otherwise, if you naturally pick up on body language and sence how someone is feeling this book is a waste of time. I didn't get anything helpful out of it. Wasted credit.
Not very in depth. too short! I enjoyed listening to this audible and was disappointed when it was over. It highlights many key points useful in today's world of business and social networking. I found the information useful only wish to explore this topic of NLP in greater depth and detail.
"vague introduction to nlp"
This book is a nice but vague introduction to NLP, not really applicable.
At the end it says that there is a full version so this must be a summary but that is not specified in the description.
The information provided in this is far too superficial and general to be of use. Wouldn't recommend.
