    Dazzling Nonsense

    It has been said the founder of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Bandler, made up the term when during a traffic stop a policeman asked for his profession. This field which is fresh from the mid 70's was developed by studying top professionals and then observing activities and behaviors that seemed reliable and then forming these into a pragmatic approach rather than trying to understand the why or how of the mechanics behind the theory (they never looked at the work of say - oh I don't know - neuro scientists). <BR/><BR/>The imagined power of NLP is based on showmanship and charisma. A suggestible group of believers will often appear to undergo powerful changes when called upon to perform. This is performance art, not science. Tony Robbins became a vey wealthy man with this snake oil. It is no different than the bogus claims made by John Edwards or that other charlatan, James Van Praagh. <BR/><BR/>NLP will continue to have appeal as it makes wild and exaggerated claims. If you wish to pursue it, then you should dismiss this review as rubbish. This book is as good as any and I found it interesting reading. But then again I enjoyed reading Dianetics and consider it hogwash too. I suggest you might want to purchase a copy of Tricks of the Mind for more detailed insight into the traps of NLP (and a wide range of other silliness we humans engage in).
