    An applied introductory book, with exercises.
  • Bandler, Richard & John Grinder (1975a). The Structure of Magic I: A Book About Language and Therapy, Palo Alto, CA: Science & Behavior Books. ISBN 08314-0044-7.
    Seminal work in Bandler and Grinder's early development of the process of NLP. Attempts to model successful therapeutic skills using Chomsky's Transformational Grammar linguistic theory to explain the relationship between a clients speech and the underlying experiences.

  • Bandler, Richard & John Grinder (1979). Frogs into Princes: Neuro Linguistic Programming, Moab, UT: Real People Press. ISBN 0911226192.
    The first popular introduction to NLP, it is primarily an edited transcription of a seminar given by Bandler & Grinder in the early days of NLP. While some members of the NLP community still regard this as one of the best and most readable introductions to NLP, it is quite dated and contains little of the many techniques and models that have been subsequently developed. Many others in the NLP community therefore have more regard for it as an historical document within NLP.

    Abstract: This author reports a study that examined some of the central theories of NLP as applied by German (sic) psychologists Bandler and Grinder. Subjects' eye movements were videotaped as subjects answered questions designed to activate the subjects' representational systems. Other questions were apparently controls. The results did not support NLP theoretical predictions.

    Extract from conclusions "One widely known technique, neurolinguistic programming, was examined in some detail. Two general questions were asked. First, does NLP work? There is insufficient information to provide a definitive answer to this question; all the evidence that does exist is either neutral or negative. Second, if aspects of NLP have potential merit, by what means do they achieve their results? The committee concluded that the potentially positive aspects are not unique to NLP and are not related to what is offered as a theoretical underpinning to an empirically developed set of procedures." p149.
