The light and entertaining style sustained throughout the book belies the density of the presentation. Bandler describes belief and hypnosis as closely related allies in healing and transformation. Through hypnosis we can create powerful beliefs, and beliefs are "the express train to deep hypnosis." Bandler begins with the beliefs of the practitioner. His "NLP attitude" installation, in the first chapter, works impressively well. Readers progress systematically to develop the skills necessary to build our own mind machine. You can automatically change destructive beliefs to doubts, and replace them with valuable beliefs, as fast as you can find them. Later chapters polish off hypnosis with Bandler's "favorite hypnotic phenomenon," time distortion. He gives us surprising ways to elicit and apply them. He leads us beyond hypnosis to hyperesthesia. By following the last instructions we can design whole new kinds of good feelings to enjoy, and new states of consciousness to explore.
