Reviews and Endorsements:
'By taking the NLP presuppositions as their starting-point, Joseph and Ian have emphasized the most generative aspect of NLP, and hopefully will help shift the focus of NLP interventions from simply behaviour and capability level change to show its relevance for dealing with higher level issues involving beliefs, identity and spirituality.'
- From the foreword by Robert Dilts, author, trainer and consultant in the field of NLP
'This is the book I recommend whenever someone asks me about NLP. It is clear and accessible without oversimplifying the rich technology that is NLP.'
- Jan Elfline, ICF Master Certified Coach
