Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Travel provides opportunities for seeing the world through new eyes, from alternative points of view, from the perspective of those who live different lives, so that we learn to see what was there all the time, but hitherto invisible.

My first encounter with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) came on a trip to New Zealand in 1984 when I read Frogs into Princes, the groundbreaking book by Bandler and Grinder. Briefly, NLP is a way of thinking about human experience that enables us to examine how we process information to create a sense of reality in our mind. Once we know how we mentally represent our experience, we can find effective ways of changing the meaning and affect of that representation.

Exploring NLP was a journey I decided to take . . . This book is a sketch map of my travels. Although there are many blank areas, and some of the details have been drawn with a blunt pencil, there is plenty here for others to follow the tracks and to have their own adventures in this relatively ‘unknown land.’

This book unfolds to reveal many layers. However, all is explained by the end . . . Whenever I talk to people about these ideas, I warn them: “Make sure you are OK with knowing that you will never be the same again. These ideas will change how you think about NLP and about your life in general. Once you know this stuff there is no going back.”
