  1. This book provided clear and comprehensive information about NLP. It was fun and therefore interesting. The cartoon drawings were great to have when reading something that could be very academic. I purchased another NLP book at the same time I purchased this one because I was concerned that this one would not give the depth of information I wanted. I was wrong, it was great, I never had a need to open the other book.

  2. You’ve got to hand it to NLP Trainer, Phillip Miller, for the ingenuity that he put into The Really Good Fun Cartoon Book of NLP; an illustrated guide to the “life toolbox” that is NLP. The book begins with the “four pillars” of NLP — rapport, the senses, outcomes, and flexibility — and then moves on to NLP presuppositions. The book next covers how to understand people at seven different levels: environment, behavior, capabilities, beliefs and values, identity, and purpose.

    In very simple terms, Miller explains sensory-based language, predicates, anchors and perceptual positions, rapport, calibration, listening skills, language patterns, and the meta-domains of NLP. This book touches on all aspects of NLP while providing readers with practice exercises to boost their skills.

    Some NLP practitioners might find it disconcerting that the author so assiduously avoids the “vocabulary” of NLP. For example, he refers to the Meta-Model as “reading between the lines of conversation.” Nevertheless, he does explain the “vocabulary” of NLP in the appendices. Additionally, there may be some readers who will find the absence of “jargon” quite refreshing.

    What everyone will agree on; the colorful cartoons, found on nearly every page, are funny, amusing, and whimsical. They are the art of Robert Duncan, whose work has appeared in advertising, web sites, and magazines the world over. Even if you don’t recognize the name, you’ve seen his work somewhere.

    Miller, himself, is a Certified NLP Trainer, specializing in NLP for business and teaching as a visiting fellow of Small Business Development at Cranfield University School of Management in England. His writing style is friendly, light, and conversational. He writes directly to the reader, as though chatting over a cup of tea or maybe sharing a beer at a local pub. The text is peppered with charming and amusing anecdotes from his own life that aptly demonstrate his points.

    With this book, Miller has truly made learning NLP into fun, in a way that even youngsters can understand. So if you want someone to learn about NLP, and they say it’s too complicated, hand them this book!

  3. I found this book particularly interesting and helpful. It is not just for beginners to NLP but also for those who have had some experiences with the technology. If you want a simplified view of NLP, this is the book to get.

  4. The subtitle of this book is “A Simple and Graphic(al) Explanation of the Life Toolbox that is NLP” and via cartoons and an easy, engaging writing style the author has clearly achieved this objective.

    This is a good book for those who have heard of NLP and who would like to get a better understanding of what it is. However few exercises are provided, leaving the finer distinctions and how you actually put the concepts into practice up to your imagination. For those who are new to NLP and who plan to explore NLP in more depth, this book will get you started, and I doubt if you will use it as a reference book over the longer term.

    For the experienced NLP reader, this book has little to offer. It is mainly a discussion of basic NLP concepts, with little that will extend or enhance your knowledge and abilities.

    I have given this book a 4 star rating (would have preferred 3 1/2 stars) based on its presentation style and the brief, nicely presented overview of NLP that is easily accessible by the NLP novice.
