This book is perfect to start in hypnotherapy. First go on a hands on course, then buy this book. You may need to alter some scripts, but by then you will know how to. The knowledge behind the book is obvious, and i found, starting in hypnotherapy as I am, this book just keeps you heading in the right direction. Its not ground breaking, and certainly the professional with a few years under the belt, would find this boring, BUT its not for them. Its written in language you can understand, and no going of into to deep an discussion on them. They are simple and solid to start from. To sum up, for the professional with experience, stay away. For the person who has just finished and indepth course, get this book.
