    "Fantastic book!"

    The information in this book is very straightforward and useful. The NLP approach is very effective very direct very to the point and doesn't get caught up in the story the history or the problem. Very solution focused very much in the present and it is easy to see the effectiveness of this approach from this book. Highly recommend it for anyone who's interested in NLP.

    "Fantastic "

    Phenomenal book, I started doing the exercises in the accompanying workbook (found on the library page), and am amazed at how much control we really do have over our own minds. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Good subject, snarky narrator"

    I love this subject, but had a difficult time listening to it. The narrator sounded snarky and sarcastic to me. I thought I could tolerate him but I became very uncomfortable when the subject matter was serious or sensitive. He simply sounded insensitive, sarcastic or flippant. I just couldn't tolerate his narration. Perhaps I will buy the book in text.

    "Richard Bandler is a genius"

    As a practitioner of NLP, I search for everything I can find to better my skills. This book simply explains a most powerful view that there is a program to our thoughts, emotions and actions that CAN be altered for the best, in short order. Years of counciling is not needed in many cases.

    it was well-versed and had many ideas that everyday people can use in their lives. the author writes in such a way that you feel as if he is talking to you simply and directly. He put in interesting comical moments. I will listen to it probably at least 10 times and Implement these ideas.

    "An excellent and practical 'self help' book"

    Although some reviewers have said that they don't like the delivery of the narrator, this is a really helpful book. It gives the listener practical techniques to change unhelpful behaviours- unlike many NLP books that give techniques without a context, this guides you through techniques step by step.
    Something useful to have on your ipod in the morning before work to start your day with inspiration!

    "Logic to the extreme"

    i dont normally feel compelled to write a review of a book, but this one just wound me up. The author seeks to apply the same simplified logic to every conceivable situation. Its just not credible. In every situation the solution to your problem is to think logically about why you feel the way you feel, why it's ridiculous to feel that way and then say to yourself, I'm being silly, I should think differently about that! Hey presto phobia solved! I just dont buy into it. Sorry.
