The Top NLP Books for the Christmas List

Here are some recommendations for NLP books this christmas – ones that we ourselves will be gifting to friends and family. Some are for specific groups of people, but we kick off with one general one on New Year Resolutions.  Make New Year Resolutions and Keep Them Using NLP (Donna Blinston). The majority of us see the new year as an opportunity to make changes in our lives, and whether you have a formal new years resolution list, or just want to find a way to keep to a few specific things, this simple and practical book from Donna Blinston has worked wonders. Chris and Amazon reviewer comments I bought this book to help me get fit, I found it really easy to read and very beneficial. A lot of its contents are quite common sense when brought to your attention and without out them I believe I would still be where I was.”

NLP For Parents and NLP For Children. Judy Bartkowiak’s Engaging NLP series (which now includes Teens and Tweens) takes NLP and applies half a dozen to a dozen techniques to specific groups. Each book is 80-100 pages long and contains easy to implement methods to situations specific to the life stages involved. There are also books for New Mums, for Work, Teacher and others, and it is the NLP for Parents and NLP for Children books that are the most popular.

Bangers and Mash. For any person dealing with cancer, family members and friends, Keith Hern’s incredible moving book takes us on a journey with him as he battled throat cancer the first time around. Keith is a photographer so there are plenty of amazing pictures as well. With the aid of an NLP coach, Keith has beaten cancer twice, and is once again currently using a host of NLP techniques in his third battle against cancer. Keith is a leading advocate of the use of NLP with cancer patients and many hospitals have in fact changed their procedures after reading the book.

Seeing Spells Achieving (Bendefy and Hickmott). The #1 NLP book in the world for learning difficulties since 2006, the book is still in the UK top 20 NLP books and has helped turn around the lives of tens of thousands of people – mainly children – with a variety of learning difficulties such as dyslexia. When first launched is what seen as revolutionary – applying NLP techniques in this field – and six years later is regarded as the definitive book that many others have built upon.

Negotiation Mastery. We can all do with some help in negotiation, whether its in business or in our personal lives. This new book comes from the position of creating the ‘win-win’ and is getting incredible reviews. The author, Simon Horton, has even trained top hostage negotiators and his no-nonsense approach is very easy to follow.

Influencing The Interview. Getting a job in the challenging economy is extremely tough and Chris Delaney should know – he runs a recruitment business. Chris is also an NLP practitioner and in this book he shares all the secrets of maximising your influence in that all important job interview using a host of NLP and hypnotherapy techniques

And The Next Question Is? Getting the necessary information is all down to how good your questions are and this book has thousands of insightful questions that will live long in many coaches and practitioners toolkits.

Finally, a fun book that includes a chapter on NLP from one of the world’s most fascinating mentalists – Joe Riggs. ‘The Real Sherlock Holmes’ is a book that explains the deductive techniques that con-artists and charlatans use to garner facts about people – many of which are used by the world’s most famous consulting detective Sherlock Holmes. The title of the book comes from a major US newspaper reporter who, on witnessing Riggs’s deductive skills, dubbed him ‘the real Sherlock Holmes’ and the name stuck.

Reinforcing Positive Behaviour In Children (inc ADD, ADHD)

Having seen the extremely positive results back from addressing the literacy problems that many children with ADD and ADHD have, (Seeing Spells Achieving is the UK’s No.1 NLP book for communicative disorders) we are always looking for complimentary solutions. We were very impressed to see at a recent education show that advancements are being made in positive reinforcement for children.

One pioneer in the field is Victoria Ballard who has won a regional excellence award for her praise and encouragement charts. A leading education spokesperson said:

“There are many ways to reinforce positive behaviour. Reward charts, when used properly, are an effective, tangible tool, which parents can use to help their children develop into happy, healthy, well-rounded individuals. Simple, effective reward charts, can help parents feel positive about their abilities as parents, as well as providing a simple framework that children can use to aid positive development. The Encourage & Praise™ generic charts alongside the bespoke charts produced to address specific issues provide a variety of tools to facilitate positive reinforcement in a wide range of situations. The flexibility within each chart enables each family to customise their charts to suit their own needs, thus increasing motivation to use the chart and improving the outcome. The Encourage & Praise™ charts are second to none and, in my view, it is their total flexibility along with the fact that there are different charts for children at different stages of development that makes them such valuable tools for encouraging positive development.”

The charts are simple and engaging and we’ve added a range of them to our online bookstore alongside our literacy and bedwetting books.
