Yep Robbins tool all the NLP tech, and just changed its name. But Robbins still does all the old NLP covert persuasion and hypnosis tricks. That is what he does.
Richard Bandler called Anthony Robbins a "genius" in the dedication to his book:
Time For A Change by Richard Bandler. [www.amazon.com
Why did Bandler say that? The rumor is because they made some kind of a financial deal where the NLP guys like Bandler got paid off with large regular royalty checks $$ from Robbins and his publisher, to make the intellectual property theft lawsuits go away.
Its all about $$ for these guys, beginning, middle and end. Fast money.
