Neuro-Linguistic Programming: Volume I (The Study of the Structure of Subjective Experience)
There comes a time when it is both useful, and appropriate, for the purpose of continuing to expand our understanding of the universe we live in, for entirely new fields of study to be created. Separating new from old, exceptions from rules, and useful from previously unquestionable. So learning and experiences from entirely divergent fields have the opportunity to combine knowledge and experience into configurations that allow further growth, understanding, and impact upon ourselves as a species. It is in this way that neuro-linguistic programming came into being. We wish at this point to separate our NLP from the many fields from which it draws information, from the many fields for which it has application. And in this way have greater clarity and freedom to delineate NLP's own methodologies and basic purpose.

This book is by one of the first wave of NLP scholars and innovators. Of them all Dilts and John Ginder were the two real scholars in the group. Dilts in this book shows that not only is he an innovative scholar and therapist but an author who can take material which can be complicated and explain it clearly and in a interesting way.
If you are interested in what NLP is and what it can do, this book will give you many of the basic patterns of practice. While Bandler and many of the other authors are entertaining, this book will give the patterns in clear prose without self promotion. Most of the classic texts and books will give you less. This is not like some of the books which give one or two patterns in the entire book. It rather gives pattern after pattern after technique in clear and understandable prose without water time or space.
If you want to learn it, this is the book. You will find few that give as much information as clearly.
Classic book, but not for lazy NLP noobs
By Dr. Mancilla - April 28, 2010
I'm a huge NLP fan and i use it to make people do what you want them to do every day with it. anyways, any NLP trainer will tell you that NLP constantly evolves, but they don't tell you that "constantly evolving" means that stuff is omitted so that Noobs don't get scared and stop paying for more training.
I received my NLP training and thought that something was amiss so i used the power of the internet to find every old NLP book i could to further my understanding and application abilities, this was one of those books. The thing you'll find with old nlp books is that they spend volumes talking about techniques that current trainers spend maybe 10-30 minutes on. current trainers do this to overload you and get your money.
anyways, this book is awesome. it takes its time and has transcripts demonstrating parts of a huge methodology which goes like this Figure out their Model of reality (test), elicit a Strategy with TOTE (test), Utilize their behavior... read more
