5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, 31 Aug. 2003

This review is from: Training Trances (Paperback)
Although this book is described on the cover as being about Ericksonian hypnosis and the use of hypnosis in training, this isn't entirely true. The book does NOT demonstrate or explain how to use hypnosis in training 'in general'.
What the authors have created is an almost unique and very useful resource which teaches Ericksonian hypnosis by using hypnotic techniques within the text. This definitely works, in fact almost 'too' well - for a couple of months after reading this book I began to go into a trance no matter what book I was reading [more of a trance than usual :) ] !
Much of the book, a rich mixture of demonstration, explanation and exercises, is based on the authors' own training workshops and I personally found that this came across to very good effect.
I wouldn't suggest that any book could make you an expert in a subject like hypnosis, but this strikes me as an excellent basic text for anyone wanting to study Erickson's techniques.
Two other books which would make excellent companions to "Training Trances", IMO, are:
"Hypnosis: A Comprehensive Guide", by Flores, Schober and James (ISBN 1899836454), another practical guide which contrasts the Ericksonian approach with two other styles of hypnosis
"Monsters and Magical Sticks", by Heller and Steele (ISBN 1-56184-026-2), a deceptively simple study of what hypnosis is, possibly, really all about. Although it only mentions NLP in passing, fans of that topic may find a lot to interest them anyway.
