Thomas Jefferson once said, "If two individuals get together and exchange a dollar, they each walk away with one dollar. If the same individuals get together and exchange an idea, they both walk away with two ideas." In many ways, this statement expresses the vastly generative potential or "economics" of modeling.
Modeling is the process of taking a complex event or phenomenon and breaking it into small enough chunks so that it can be recapitulated or applied in some way. Behavioral modeling involves observing and mapping the successful processes which underlie an exceptional performance of some type. The purpose of behavior modeling is to create a pragmatic map or "model" of a particular behavior which can be used to reproduce or simulate some aspect of that performance by anyone who is motivated to do so.
The field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) has developed out of the modeling of the behaviors and thinking processes of exceptional people from many fields. NLP modeling procedures involve finding out about the mental strategies ("Neuro") a person is using by analyzing that person's language patterns ("Linguistic") and nonverbal responses. The results of this analysis are then put into step-by-step strategies or procedures ("Programming") that may be used to transfer the skill to other people, and apply it to other contexts.
This book contains the principles and tools necessary for effective modeling and illustrates the application of NLP modeling procedures. The results define the key communication and relational skills employed by effective leaders to achieve practical results in the working reality, in order to "create a world to which people want to belong."

Hitler's Monsters: A Supernatural History of the Third Reich
Yale University Press
he definitive history of the supernatural in Nazi Germany, exploring the occult ideas, esoteric sciences, and pagan religions touted by the Third Reich in the service of power
The Nazi fascination with the occult is legendary, yet today it is often dismissed as Himmler's personal obsession or wildly overstated for its novelty.

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book.

The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
