Clean Language: Revealing Metaphors and Opening Minds by Wendy Sullivan
You will like this book! Everything simply start with a story… the story of our lives, the story of our friends and loved ones, the story of our world. Stories are indeed part of our everyday life, simply by the fact of using language and words to describe what is really happening. Following the work of David Grove, the creator of clean language, the authors, Wendy and Judy, take us in an exploration of our own metaphors, introducing steps by steps the famous Clean Language questions.
Metaphors are everywhere!
Mixing exercises, examples and presentation, the book is easy to read, well balanced and definitely engaging. Once finished we simply want to learn more about Clean Language and experiment. We are just seduced by the magic of metaphors and as an NLP practitioner I have to admit I keep coming to those questions and metaphors at nearly every session. With chapter 10, you will even defined your own metaphors as your reading goes along, an activity not to be missed, while chapter 11 and 12 prepare you to work with the client.

Furthermore, although listening is an integral component of the process of clean, it definitely does not use techniques such as paraphrasing, summarising etc, for these automatically provide the opinion of the questioner. To my mind, they have achieved their aim. The book has 16 chapters, each of which has a select number of practical activities which enable the reader to practise the concepts.

Not sure whether there is a specific use case for this book but I found the questioning techniques basic and some of the structures were quite ridiculous 'what kind of warmth is that warmth?

Excellent resource for doing sessions with people to avoid using leading questions and find out what it is THEY mean when they use a metaphor or simply describe anything. It seems so simple and yet it's immensely powerful in practice.
