A must read for the basic Understanding of NLP

Would you consider the audio edition of The Ultimate Introduction to NLP: How to Build a Successful Life to be better than the print version?

I believe this should be listened to. Especially for the Kinesthetic (auditory and or feeling oriented people.) learners out there. This will not be the case for people who need to feel the physical book. Some might enjoy having both so they can feel the pages and follow along with the reading.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Did not have a favorite character however I did like how you could feel for the main character. You get a sense of what the character is going through and in essence through the story you actually see how NLP works. NLP is not some great huge discovery rather it is a a system of learning to interact with anyone on their particular communicating style.

Which scene was your favorite?

I like the area where the Main character returns home and tries communicating with his girlfriend by understanding the style of communicating she uses rather than him always trying to blame himself for her being upset or unhappy. Classic example of being on different pages of communication.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, nothing extreme, however it did help me understand that when I am in the middle of a disagreement with someone else I must be aware of how they are communicating.

Any additional comments?

In a nutshell this book is an insight into the mind of different ways of thinking. For instance some people when they talk use their bodies in motion to help them communicate (visual) , others are very clear spoken and their every word means something (auditory). Most will use a combination of all styles. Some will relate in how they feel and will communicate on how they feel about something or another and how what they see and hear makes them feel. (kinesthetic.)
