Review

"[A] most readable volume, rich in personal memories and comments by Dr. Rosen... The stories give indirect suggestions, show how to overcome habitual limitation, re-frame experiences from negative to positive and discover values. The result is a remarkable combination of entertaining reading offering personal psychological insight."

Format: Paperback
I read about Erickson as the pioneer of NLP, and his work in hypnosis and psychotherapy and was intrigued. This book is a great introduction to Erickson. His style of communication which involves the use of skilfully vague language patterns, rapport skills, and conversational hypnosis techniques, forms the basis of the Milton Model in NLP.

These stories are case studies, people with all sorts of problems, and very interesting solutions, and great stories.

This guy is a genius. From bedwetting to alcoholism, to repression, I was particularly inspired by a very short story about the Turmahara Indians, and how knowing and thinking about their special abilities can increase your energy levels. If it works for me, it might work for you.

There was one story about how he treated one woman who was sexually unresponsive, and through using his storytelling method caused her to have an orgasm in his office without touching her! Before reading this book I had not realised how easily influenced we can be by indirect suggestion, and how powerful his techniques are.

Essentially this is a book of anecdotes, with the author who is himself a psychiatrist giving an explanation of the methods and techniques being used by Erickson.

Apart from the therapeutic benefits, if you read this book you can really improve your communication and storytelling skills if you follow the principles used here, so I would recommend this book to aspiring story tellers.

Think of Erickson as someone who was a master of effecting life altering personal change by being able to communicate on a deeper level. Applied to yourself you can most likely imagine the effect you can have on yourself and others and how you can win friends and influence people by learning this skill.

Format: Paperback
"If you going to tell yourself stories, you may as well make them good ones" is a sound piece of advice that I first heard from NLP trainer Ian McDermott. "My voice will go with you" fills the bill nicely.

It's not hard to imagine some of these tales being included in popular anthologies of folk wisdom, yeah even unto Reader's Digest. Some might regard such a prospect with distaste, what with Erickson being so revered by many really clever people including writer Aldous Huxley. But it's actually an indication of his all-embracing humanity that so many of the tales make great points in ways that could easily please a very wide audience.

Sidney Rosen's commentaries uncover some of the principles underlying what Erickson was up to in these stories, thereby adding to the wealth of learning. His commentaries are mostly short and anyone wanting more extensive "under the bonnet" insights might care to check out Bandler & Grinder's "Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson".

"My voice will go with you" is an easy read, but no less worthwhile for that. A few stories run to several pages, many are just a page or so and some are even shorter. You can dip into it or zip through it in any direction with equal pleasure and edification. Either way is better.

If you are studying hypnotherapy then this book is a must.
Actual case studies are described, analysed and explained, so the reader can get an insight into how Erikson worked.
But this is not a book that will teach you how to do it - it just provides you with examples of his methods. To really appreciate Erikson you need to see and hear him working.
This book is easy to read and will make you wonder, perhaps, how such dramatic change is brought about through cleverly constructed language alone. Erikson used language to allow the patient to effect change within themselves, and this book really illustrates that well.

This book will be an excellent addition to the library of anyone interested in Hypnosis or NLP.
Each tale is accompanied by a short description of the thinking underlying each tale and to read these notes is to look inside the mind of a genius in his field.
A modestly priced book packed with information and insight - buy it now!

Format: Paperback
This is a great introduction to skill, resourcefulness and versatility of Erikcson and the possibilities of Ericksonian hypnosis.

The stories are fun to read and they may also inspire solutions to problems presented by your own clients, but do remember that the essence of Ericksonian hypnosis is "utlization" of client's background, predispositions and preferences, rather than pick a script or a technique and use it on everyone indiscriminately.

It is not only techniques which are thought through NLP and Ericksonian hypnosis today that distinguished Erickson, but his respect for uniqueness of individual and the problem he was facing. Erickson was also open to using absolutely anything that may work, no matter how outrageous it would appear. And he was infinitely creative in his approach as you'll find out from the stories in this book.

Format: Paperback
Through anecdotes about his practice and examples of the stories he used, My Voice will go with You is a fascinating and highly readable insight into the genius of Erickson. The stories are always compelling; often funny; and occasionally bizarre; making this a really enjoyable read. The only problem for me is that many of the stories are so context specific that it is difficult to know how they could be applied elsewhere. Nevertheless this a fun, easy read and there are many ideas that you can apply in your own metaphors.
