NLP pronounced en el pea. Let's just get the name thing out of the way NLP stands for neuro linguistic programming - yes, I know it's weird and yes, I know it's funny (peculiar, not ha ha) - but, that's the name.
How come? NEURO Concerns the brain and the things that go on in your mind.
Also the rest of the neurological system, including the five senses. LINGUISTIC This relates to language, both spoken and non-spoken (sometimes called body language). PROGRAMMING This is about your behaviour and your thinking patterns. The concepts and ideas of NLP can be of great benefit to people in all areas of their lives; be it at work, with family and friends or in other activities.
The problem has been how to get this across and explain those ideas and show how they can be easily learnt and applied. Traditionally the world of NLP training and literature has been full of technical sounding expressions, just think of the name - neuro linguistic programming.
It takes a lot of persistence and effort to get through all this to access the real benefits that NLP can bring to people. The Really Good Fun Cartoon Book of NLP seeks to cut through all this by using simple (non jargon) language and amusing illustrations to get across the principles of NLP and how people can think about using them in their everyday lives.
Knowing when and how to dip into the NLP life skills toolbox is really useful as is the idea that it's all just a learning experience. This book will help you get even more from life - to become an even more interesting and interested person, but only if that's what you want.
