The NLP toolbox was a great contribution to my therapeutic work. As you know, a trance state is not necessary to achieve results. I just called it 'visualization.' Now most 'treatment' is chemical because one can prescribe in ten minutes. Thanks private insurance!!

THOM'S USUAL ELOQUENCE. I had always admired Thom's broad grasp of history, but his overview of the Adams/Jefferson/Calvin philosophies and how they reflect Republican/Progressive differences today was mind-blowing. Thom is a master teacher of our times, a truly illuminating person. I was equally fascinated with his previous discussion about the history of hypnotherapy. As a psych major and lifelong student of the works of Carl Jung, I had not heard this story about the cultural impact of the novel Trilby before. It explains a great deal. I have an expanding list of people with whom I would like to have dinner in this lifetime, and Thom stays up in the top five. That will be a conversation well worth waiting for. Antoniafelix.com

This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
