To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As an editor, I'd say the title is misleading. I thought this book would focus on traditional linguistics. Instead, it outlines the NLP-based Language and Behavior (LAB) Profile tool used to determine situational patterns reflected in a person's language and behavior--NOT the words themselves. It is more of a manual and self-promotional tool for those interested in using this assessment model in a work environment.
I am surprised that this book has so many 5-star fans. It was neither entertaining nor easy to read. On the contrary, I found it challenging to parse. I do have prior training in NLP, and I had to create my own chart to comprehend the various categories, indicators, etc.
I noticed that many of the glowing reviews were written by NLP master practitioners. Perhaps the LAB tool would be useful for them in a 1-on-1 sales/HR/coaching scenario, but less so otherwise due to the many possible permutations, as individual analysis varies with the specific situation. (Or one could take her trainings which are regularly promoted throughout the chapters.)
That said, I would NEVER EVER recommend this book to a non-practitioner. As a person with some NLP training, I am just lukewarm.
I found this book complicated to read. I felt like the author wrote a book just to self promote themselves. I felt like the examples were difficult to translate to real life. I do a lot of reading and this book did not grab and hold my attention.
This reads more like a collection of training scripts, full of self-prompting and little substance. It promises to help changing other's mind by recognizing/matching their patterns, which is not only superficial but borders on manipulative, or trying to do so. It risks ignoring what is really important by focusing too much on how to labelling people.
At the outset, the book seemed to be well-researched and potentially valuable for people whose job is to write persuasive messages. But the more I got into it, the more the book seemed like a commercial for the author's own heavily copyrighted consulting practice than as a thoughtful discussion of the language of influence. I was disappointed.
This book should not be an audiobook. There are charts etc. that are mentioned early on an one would have to have a visual to understand how they are linked and what is going on. I'm already well versed in NLP and I did not know that is what this book was.
Compraste el libro creyendo en el título, grave error. Es un libro que me dio Usa la programación neuro lingüística, el problema está en que la técnica que esta mujer vende, aparece más de 300 veces mencionada en su libro. Parece mas un manual gigante para vender su producto, que es un libro que intente enseñarte cómo usar el lenguaje por favor de tus clientes o pacientes. Yo no lo recomendaría, pero tampoco pude decir que no me ayudó a recordar algunos conocimientos de PNL
