Reviews - What do customers think about Practical Magic:: A Translation of Basic Neuro-Linguistic Programming Into Clinical Psychotherapy?
Uneven Excellence Jun 27, 2007
This book provides an excellent overview of NLP and its clinical applications. There is a major problem though: the editing is terrible. By not being reliably accurate, some of the ideas and examples are hard to follow, and one is left wondering what else may be left out or is not communicated clearly.
Best NLP book Sep 10, 2006
I absolutely loved this book. Mr. Lankton balances the theory of NLP with practical and useful descriptions of how to use NLP in therapeutic situations. I especially appreciated him examining many of the techniques of different brands of psychotherapy in the framework of NLP, enabling practitioners of various disciplines to notice that what they already do can be explained and enhanced by NLP.
And as an introduction to each chapter, Lankton narrates a story of a young man that aptly parallels the content of each chapter, so for a quick introduction or review of what goes on in each chatper you can read that section of the story.
This book is by far superior to many of the NLP books that have come out since 1985. It is superior in its logical presentation, inclusion of both theory and example (short transcripts), and its overall presenation such that the reader learns how many apsects of NLP fit and work together in a comphrehensive system.
