    I spend a lot of my time in bookstore cafes, and over the past few years, I’ve noticed that the most frequent topic of conversation is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). I think the topic is fascinating….but for a different reason than everybody else: I think it’s fascinating because for the life of me I can’t figure out whether NLP is bogus or not. 

    I suspect that it’s rooted in truths and that the claims are exaggerated after that. But here’s my big question: if NLP supposedly gives you such advantages in life (i.e., the ability to control people’s thoughts and decisions), then why are so many people NLP proponents I meet aimless, directionless, unemployed "businessmen"/"entrepreneurs"?
