I quickly lost interest. I returned it before listening to all of it.
Somewhat cheesy, but fairly practical. Disk 1 is mostly about making things more or less attractive to yourself by making their images bigger and brighter or dimmer and smaller, about 2 types of motivation people use (toward pleasure and away from discomfort) and how to use both to motivate yourself, and then the last part is about defining your values and working toward them. Disk 2 is about getting rid of fears and fobias, and also improving self-esteem by looking at yourself "through the eyes of love." I expected a bit more from the book (I don't think they lived up to the title of the book yet), but whatever is there is fairly good and useful, and I will try to get more books on this subject.
This is largely a book of exercises. For me it was supplemental because I already have the book and wanted to hear the teachers on the audio lead through some of the excercises already studied (altho the audio will stand on it's own if this is new to you). This isn't really the kind of thing to listen to in your car. It's more something you might keep for a long time or record so you can actually practice. That said, it's excellent. NLP can be life changing and this is as basic yet comprehensive a survey as you will find. The people behind this are among the biggest names in NLP and it's great to hear them taking you step by step through the way this works. This is a best way to begin and the most respected survey book in NLP. I could provide SimplyAudioBooks with a list of dozens of NLP CDs I would like to see them offer. But this seems to be about it unless you count some of the Tony Robbins books. Excellent. Please try it.
I put this in and was glad I had another rental I had not started yet. It is cheesy like an infomercial. I will warn that you may want to take this review lesser to heart because I only could listen to about half of it and it possibly got much better, but I played one track on the second disc and that didn't capture my attention either. The posed solutions to the problems seem to be mostly mental exercises. They are semi-interesting methods of solving a problem but I haven't really tried any since I finished the book either. I think this mostly has to do with the reader and quality of the material. I couldn't take the book seriously. The reader sounded like he was trying to con me. It seemed really cheesy and lacked good references and examples. NLP is a fascinating science and there isn't a lot of audio type material out there. That is the reason I ended up getting it. I wouldn't get a sequel.
This is another one where I will have to run out and get the book after hearing the abridged version. What they teach in these two cd's is of the upmost value. In fact I have even heard Tony Robbins speak highly of it more than once.
Although the description that you read for this book is very brief, it is concise, and true. The ideas that are brought forth and not revolutionizing, but instead, is embedded within us all. What this book gives you is a guide and direction to harness the over-achiever in all of us. Whether you are greatly confident already, or completely detached from society, this book can be used to quiet all your fears and live the life we all deserve.
Excellent book, especially on audio. Tremendous application to a variety of life situations. Wish it was longer with more elaboration.
