Another question I got at the library: What does NLP stand for?
Short answer = Neuro Linguistic Programming.
The first time I heard of NLP was actually here at the library when someone came in raving about Tony Robbins. “And he does all this NLP stuff!” he said. “And and and!”
I only looked it up because it was annoying not to know what he meant.
Normally when someone asks about Tony Robbins I fake an illness and go home sick.
“And this one time I was at his seminar and he…” He had appeared at the desk again.
We didn’t have a lot of books on the subject, but I did wind up reading a book which, according to reviews, seemed to be a seminal work on NLP:
I shan’t be reviewing it.
Since then, we’ve definitely been getting more NLP books in. I’ve seen NLP for business, NLP for magic, NLP for dummies, for excellence, for everything and anything.
Do any of you hearty readers have any experience with this? I know very little about it and don’t find the concepts particularly intriguing or new. It just sounds like a way to pay attention to how people speak and maybe be more adept at salesmanship.
I know that’s a really simple view. I’m ready to be enlightened by you geniuses.
“And then he!”
