The Really Good Fun Cartoon Book of NLP

Phillip Miller
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!
