A delightful read! Outrageous, funny, insightful, and touching. You'll enjoy it from start to finish. Packed with experiences from his background working in hospitals, social work, to private counseling practice, Andrew T. Austin shows how NLP can be anything but boring.

We think that every NLPer will want to read this book. But it's also universal enough that everyone interested in personal growth, therapy, counseling, and how to be more human, will find it both entertaining and thought provoking.

Includes experiences and insights regarding a wide range of issues, including overeating and eating disorders, ADD, PTSD, rage, depression, schizophrenia, use of drugs, obsessions, compulsions, bedwetting, anxiety, dying, emergency room situations, narcissism, self-esteem, critical self-talk, hoarding, hysterical paralysis, agoraphobia, phobias, etc.

--- from the publisher

“A fascinating book of amusing and sometimes outrageous vignettes, using NLP language patterns, submodalities, and what one might call ‘NLP provocative therapy.’ A delightful collection of stories, thought pieces, and teaching that cast light into what NLP has to offer the field of psychotherapy and psychiatry. If you have an interest in the field, it will give you insights; if you have no interest, then read it just to enjoy the inevitable laughter.”
—Julian Russell, Senior Executive Coach and co-author of Alpha Leadership: tools for business leaders who want more from life.

“Most books about therapy could just as well be prescribed as sleeping pills. And they often sit unread by the side of therapists’ beds, after they have plowed through the first jargon-laden chapter or two. Not this book! Andy Austin’s Rainbow Machine will have you laughing, gasping in horror and awe, and wishing like hell that you lived close enough to him to get an appointment. He is the British Milton Erickson.”
—Bill O’Hanlon, author of Change 101 and many other books about brief therapy.

“This is the most interesting book about therapy I’ve read since Jay Haley’s Uncommon Therapy.”
—Steve Andreas, author of Six Blind Elephants, and co-author of Heart of the Mind.
