Many thanks to Topher Morrison for his original 2007 e-book ‘5 Things NLP Schools Don’t Want You to Ask’.

We are focused on the same core belief that Topher encapsulated, in that, you are best placed to make an informed decision when you have as much information as is useful; the questions you ask are key.
