As a reasonably experienced performer of hypnosis I found this book to be an excellent read, I also loved Chris’s little stories in between the theory. I highly recommend this book and if you read it and watch Chris’s videos on YouTube you could go out and do a show if you have the balls! Chris really does tell it like it is and it’s the only book that I’ve read that I agree with about what hypnosis is and isn’t. Don’t believe the hype from expensive trainers and DVD’s etc do yourself a favour and save yourself time and money and buy this book! It’s not flashy and hasn’t been proof read or edited but is still perfectly readable and the content is solid gold!
On behalf of Chris Smith - Hi people, I’ve had the privilege of reading this fantastic book on stage hypnosis by christian p taylor. I'd like to give a quick review on what makes this a true guide for anyone looking to become a hypnotist! First off if you can not handle brute honesty then this book is not for you, from start to finish you will learn a very in depth professional approach in staging your act. I loved how funny this book is, you can hear Christians voice through these pages and feel his passion, also the teaching in this book is so honest, i like how he’s understanding your mind as to what your thinking while you read this book. I got a good understanding of how hard this guy works and is extremely underrated for what he can do !!!!! Thanks for the lessons in this book chris i will defo apply this mind set to more of my magic !!! Great read 8/10. The story’s in this book are epic lol fantastic book
After expressing an interest in stage Hypnosis and speaking to the author, I purchased this book direct from him. Its a brilliant book, that cuts out all the BS and tells you how it is! Lots of funny stories which help explain methods and performance tips, this is a man with vast experience at performing various disciplines and all levels, so feel confident what he says is tried and tested. This shouldn't be the only resource you buy for Hypnotism, but this will give you a very good grounding.
All in all a great book that I will continue to reference on my own journey.
Funny, personal, informative and a dam good read. If you have an interest in hypnosis or not this is a fantastic read. You get an honest account of how to become a stage hypnotist, the ups and downs, advice and techniques on how to Hypnotize!!!!!!
As you may have guest, I enjoyed this book and all I need to do now is practice. Aaaaand, Sleep!!!!
Easy to read, humourous and informative and packed with anecdotes, giving both an insight into the magic of stage hypnosis and tips to the budding hypnotist. Doesn’t pull any punches about the reality of touring and establishing yourself as an entertainer, but also contains lots of hints on working with your audience and how to handle the more challenging audience members.
