This is a little gem of a book which, perhaps more so than any other, helped me understand how our minds work on a linguistic basis (a topic of, no doubt, interest to avid readers).

The downside is that it's basically a textbook writing for pyschologists. But, if you can stomach the dryness, the rewards of insight are well worth the effort.

As many know, this series of books along with Frogs into Princes helped to establish the field of Nero Linguistic Programming or NLP.

...operations of an almost mysterious character, which run counter to ordinary procedure in a more less paradoxical way.  They are methods which give an onlooker the impression of magic if he be not himself initiated or equally skilled in the mechanism. - H.Vaihinger, The Philosophy of As If, p.qq
We dedicate this book to Virginia Satir in appreciation for giving us her intuitions about people.  These intuitions are the basis of what follows in this book.  Thank you, Virginia.  We love you.
