"A Teaching Seminar of Milton H. Erickson is a delightful read and likely to communicate powerfully to the reader at various levels. The style of the book offers a real sense of being in Erickson's presence. His anecdotes are teaching tales, interspersed with useful suggestion, make for engaging prose and unexpected learning hidden within his subtle use of metaphor.
-Jake Anderson, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Psychology, Monash University. "Psychotherapy in Australia," Vol II No. I, November 2004

The appendix, which makes up a solid 20% of the book, provides a very useful meta-commentary wherein Zeig and Erickson go over a portion of the seminar and pause to discuss various things as they unfold. It's a sort of director's commentary, and being able to observe Erickson discuss the why and how of his methods in such detail is a privilege. The whole book is full of such insights, but the appendix is especially rich. I'm not one to highlight books, but I highlighted a good 20-30 passages in the course of this one.
I'd also add that it's a good read for the analytical depressive who wants to get better but feels they can't possibly. I recommended it to just such a friend, who devoured the book in a weekend and promptly found themselves in a forward-thinking state of epiphany. As Erickson liked to say, the patient does all the work - the therapist just creates a fertile environment for change. For some, that lesson is just what they need to break the illusion of being powerless.
