Totally love this book. I have spent the most enjoyable day reading this amazing book and will clearly be reading it again and again... There is so much useful content I don't quite know where to start. The author, Rory, has started with the sensible part of safety and ethical considerations before covering the essential 'pre-talk' giving us not only a choice of 2 stage pre-talks but a massive 5 versions for street. Rory then goes on to give a fantastic range of suggestibility tests and very useful (and important) tips on how to choose and manage volunteers. This sets us up beautifully to be able to follow the exquisite wording for the mammoth range of scripts for routines covering everything from the start of the show with seated versions through to the more active standing and movement ones. Yet, he doesn't stop there! He gives us a range of fabulous post-hypnotic suggestions and sound advice on how to end the show. Whatever your level of experience, you will learn something from the book. It is irresistible!!!
I have done a couple of stage shows before and reading through this book has been eye opening as to where I went wrong and what I can do better in the future. This book covers everything that you need as a performer of hypnosis, even if it is just for friends when conversation gets a little slow. The scripts are easy to follow and written so that you don't have to follow them exactly, you can add your own flare and there is a skit for everyone. If you have thought about getting into stage/street hypnosis then you need this book. And if you have thought about learning hypnosis or hypnotherapy then I can honestly recommend any work done by Rory.
Having purchased this book all i can say is thanks Rory. It not only explains top tips and tricks,it explains it in a normal non complex manner that everyone can understand. Def worth the read. Thanks Ed
If you've ever fancied yourself as a budding Kenny Craig from Little Britain, then this is the book for you. As well as giving you a tonne of ready-to-use (or modifiable) scripts/skits, this book also covers everything else you'll need (or want) to know, from the pre-talk and suggestibility tests, to dealing with abreactions and who NOT to hypnotise.
If you've read any of Rory's other books then you should know what to expect; If bad language, irreverence or low-brow humour offend you, then you may want to give this book a wide berth, but if you want all the information required to get started as a stage/street hypnotist in one, simple to understand and down-to-earth book...this is it.
Got this book at one of Rorys courses and must say I'm glad I did. Having read his other books, I had an idea what to expect but actually this one is even better than the others!!! I don't ever want to be a stage hypnotist, thats not me, but I am working on building my "street hypnosis" skills so I can demonstrate hypnosis to friends and potential hypnotherapy clients and have a bit of fun with it. This book has already been a massive help towards this goal and I can't recommend it enough to THERAPISTS as well as budding stage hypnotists too. Amazing book Rory, keep them coming!!!
Another great book by this author. The usual tounge in cheek language (swearing) is dialed back for this one, but the message and skills are not. There are masses of techniques, tips and skills complimented with enough humour to keep even the shortest of attention spans engaged.
