Metaphor MachineReally, this little podcast episode is only scratching the surface of what you can do with metaphors. For a deeper understanding, get this great instructional audio from Jonathan Altfeld: The Metaphor Machine.

It gives you an even more subtle and powerful method for creating useful metaphors than the ‘standard’ NLP approach (which I couldn’t share in this little podcast because a) it’s not mine to share and b) there’s a lot of material there, too much to fit into the podcast format!
