Customer Review

on 18 December 2007
This is a great book, particularly because Jay Haley gets out of the way and effectively lets Erickson tell his own story, by means of copious long quotations and by simply describing Erickson's MO without comment, even when the author disagrees with his methods. Therefore it acts as a book which I believe Erickson never wrote himself, ie a clear and succinct explication of his methods. It is divided into chapters describing different periods of the human life-cycle thus showing Erickson's approach to a wide variety of problems, both with and without the use of hypnosis.

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.
