Hailed as one of the greatest geniuses in the field of personal change, and the father of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Richard Bandler has helped tens of thousands of people around the globe rid themselves of 'incurable' phobias, fears, anxieties, addictions, negative habits, and past traumas often in a single session.

The content is okay, certainly presented better than most of his written material (much of his writing would benefit greatly if he were to use a talented ghostwriter slash editor as he tends to ramble). The processes used in NLP are set forth intelligently; however, the Audible version leaves a good deal to be desired, as the checklists and worksheets used in the book are entirely left out of the audiobook! He refers to them, instructing the listener to complete them before proceeding...having access to a friend's copy over the weekend I was able to work through a few of them, enough to realize that they are not just fluff but integral to using the material. Unless the listener is willing to run to the bookstore to purchase a hard copy, he or she will be completely lost early on. I scurried back to the computer expecting to find a PDF of those items, but they seem to have been entirely overlooked. Come on, guys; as a long-term (7 year) member of Audible, I am deeply disappointed at this oversight. It's like ordering a cheeseburger and receiving the bun, veggies, cheese and condiments...but where's the beef?! I want my credit back!
