Whispering In The Wind
by Carmen Bostic St Clair & John Grinder.
J & C Enterprises.
Scotts Valley California. 2001
"Whispering in the Wind" is the long awaited book by Carmen Bostic St Clair and co-creator of NLP Dr. John Grinder. Until now the field of NLP has lacked a credible, up to date book that spells out the fundamentals of NLP, the epistemology of the field and the historical context in which it arose. This book defines the principles (with examples) underpinning NLP in a manner that enables the reader to establish whether material taught in the field is NLP or not. We hope that "Whispering" will encourage NLP trainers to examine their own practices and derive benefit for their students and themselves through incorporating the rigour offered by Grinder and Bostic St. Clair. This book does require a level of experience and competence in NLP and is recommended for people who have completed a practitioner of NLP training. We think this book is as seminal as the first book on NLP; Bandler and Grinders' "Structure of Magic Volume 1" and a 'must read' for Master Practitioners and Trainers of NLP. "Whispering in the Wind" covers important distinctions in NLP within the domain of modelling, NLP application and NLP training. To find out more visit www.nlpwhisperinginthewind.com
