  1. Take any problem you like into Solution States, and you will find Sid simply there beside you, pointing you in the right direction and allowing you to expand your imagination.
  2. A useful addition to the kit bag of anyone working as a consultant in any of the soft areas of business (and probably some of the hard ones as well).
  3. Solution States is a handholding book, which uses the techniques of NLP to walk you through any problem you are trying to solve. It is particularly helpful in showing you ways to get into the right states to be creative and powerful in generating solutions as well as providing templates for analysis.
  4. The cover adds a quotation from Diana Beaver, author and trainer, “Take any problem you like into Solution States and you will find Sid simply there beside you, as a helping hand, a gentle voice in your ear pointing you in the right direction and allowing you to expand your imagination.”

    This sums up the way this book can be used and there is some great new thinking here to help find ways of overcoming problems. Split into two parts, the first helps the reader define their problem, Space ” Self, Purpose, Audience, Code, Experience.

    Part 2 moves on to problem solving using the NLP concepts of States. Throughout, there are questions that help the reader understand and progress, examples, exercises and illustrations.

    A fascinating and practical self-help book for resolving problems, permanently.
