Long known as the world's leading medical hypnotist, Milton H. Erikson developed a strategic approach - for individuals, couples and families - that uses hypnotic-therapy skills in observing and motivating people. His ideas and procedures have been widely used to sharpen the techniques of therapists of many different schools. Jay Haley provides a look at Dr. Erickson's theories in practice, through description and excerpts from Erickson's case studies.

In particular, to me as a student of systemic therapy, it shows how Erickson was the father of the 'strategic' approach, with a complete disregard for political correctness. The man would be in jail if he did this stuff today. oops.
I like the introduction also. Here the author talks about how Erickson didn't improve all his clients, but this book is focused on his successes. I think that's an important thing to remember, he had clients who didn't improve sometimes, he was a man let's not lose that in the myth.
This is probably one of my all time favorite hypnotherapy books.
