Cheesy story - but a great intro to NLP

What made the experience of listening to The Ultimate Introduction to NLP: How to Build a Successful Life the most enjoyable?

The story that surrounds the audiobook is quite poor, and not well written - however what makes it great is that it breaks down the concepts of NLP into very easy to use chunks. This made this one of the best books about NLP I've come across.

What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The writing was not great, and the story was extremely cheesy. But I think short of completely re-writing it I dont see how they could fix this.

Which character – as performed by Owen Fitzpatrick – was your favourite?

He's a very engaging speaker however any character where he was pretending to be a man was best. He doesnt come across well as a teenage girl.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really, it was quite inspiring stuff though, once you get past the naff story.

Any additional comments?

Worth sticking with if you want an intro to NLP, it's without doubt the best intro I've ever seen - despite the poor back story.

Surprising good listen.

Most technical or self help books I find take for every to get to the point or just mind numbingly boring. The way the subject is delivered is from the perspective of a delegate attending an NLP training day and it works surprising well.

Well worth the money

A must read for the basic Understanding of NLP

Would you consider the audio edition of The Ultimate Introduction to NLP: How to Build a Successful Life to be better than the print version?

I believe this should be listened to. Especially for the Kinesthetic (auditory and or feeling oriented people.) learners out there. This will not be the case for people who need to feel the physical book. Some might enjoy having both so they can feel the pages and follow along with the reading.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Did not have a favorite character however I did like how you could feel for the main character. You get a sense of what the character is going through and in essence through the story you actually see how NLP works. NLP is not some great huge discovery rather it is a a system of learning to interact with anyone on their particular communicating style.

Which scene was your favorite?

I like the area where the Main character returns home and tries communicating with his girlfriend by understanding the style of communicating she uses rather than him always trying to blame himself for her being upset or unhappy. Classic example of being on different pages of communication.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, nothing extreme, however it did help me understand that when I am in the middle of a disagreement with someone else I must be aware of how they are communicating.

Any additional comments?

In a nutshell this book is an insight into the mind of different ways of thinking. For instance some people when they talk use their bodies in motion to help them communicate (visual) , others are very clear spoken and their every word means something (auditory). Most will use a combination of all styles. Some will relate in how they feel and will communicate on how they feel about something or another and how what they see and hear makes them feel. (kinesthetic.)
