Read Joseph’s views on other books. This covers reviews of many NLP and coaching books, from the popular ‘Coaching for Performance’ by Sir John Whitmore, to the more detailed (and much longer) Hidden Dimensions by Otto Laske. There is also a review of ‘The Gift of Fear’ by Gavin de Becker. This is not an overtly NLP book, but has many important insights for NLP on the nature of fear and celebrity stalkers.
This small collection has a number of published interviews I gave, and a number of book reviews I wrote from 2002 to 2010.
