Just in case you forgot exactly what the “War On Terror” is fighting to preserve.
The “Amateur Sketch” alone must be worth its weight in (Leprachaun) gold.

nlpmp3.com is a fantastic resource. Not only do they sell the most comprehensive catalogue of spoken word CDs and downloadable MP3s related to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnosis they also have a great selection of free downloads.
The best of these freebies, imo, are the interviews with the NLP “royalty” – Richard Bandler, Paul McKenna, John La Valle, Michael Breen, et al. Of all of these though the stand out for me is Laura Spicer, NLP Master Practitioner, trainer and voice coach.
Practical advice on the use (and importance) of the voice is surprisingly under represented in current NLP literature and is even less visible in the Practitioner and Master Practitioner courses. In this information-packed, fat-free, 45 minute interview, Laura does a great job of showing just how important the voice really is in NLP. She explains some of the common problems and offers practical advice, all in her own gorgeous, warm tones.
