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.
