What works for one will or might not work for others.

This is the most down=to-earth, easy to follow and well written hypnosis book I had read.
H. Quade
On the other hand, Hewitt gives several different sections that he does not repeat.

Original review:

I understand the variety of many reviewers on here but felt compelled to share my experience with this book.

First of all, for any "beginner" as the title indicates, this is in my opinion a helpful, positive selection. This book was the first I ever purchased on the subject and I am pleased that it was. Had I read any other book on this subject, prior to this one, I almost certainly would have been discouraged from pursuing hypnosis/hypnotherapy further.

I found this book easy and fun to read, while also instilling confidence from the beginning. The majority of books I have since read on the subject are fairly dry and often take some understanding of specific terminology to grasp. But none the less contain often times necessary information for any true seeker.

As far as hypnotizing, I personally read Hewitt's scripts directly from this book, within my first week of reading it, and had success with my first subject. With only the minor issue of having to repeat the induction (due to my own lack of confidence and the sitters skepticism), but ultimately resulting in a deep "trance state". I have since moved on but still use many of his tips and techniques in my own personal scripts.

Due to it's low purchase price, ease of reading, and the fact that it covers several areas of interest to a "beginner", I feel this book is a worthwhile purchase and recommend it to anyone who is just starting out or even has a curiosity with the topic.

On the other hand, if you are a more serious seeker, or have some knowledge and background in this area; thus looking for more serious instructions and information on this topic there are more appropriate choices out there.

Format: Paperback
A book of very, very basic scripts that assumes way too much and teaches you bad habits for hypnosis. (It uses the beach metaphor way too much--what if the subject had a drowning experience?!?) The author also assumes: 1) the client will accept the standardized reality of the script and thus no one is unique, 2) you, as a hypnotist, know what to prescribe to the client (diet, exercise, etc.), and 3) the hypnotist does all the work and accepts 100% responsibility. And, the book does a poor job at explaining trance and hypnosis, even as a simple introduction. There are better books out there that teaches hypnosis. Look for a book by Hunter or, even better but a little more complex, Gilligan.

Format: Paperback
If you know absolutely nothing about hypnosis and you want to get some basic understanding, you can go ahead and read this book. It will guide you step-by-step in your first experiments with hypnosis.

The book provides you with some general overview of hypnosis and areas of use. It also provides you with hypnosis scripts. One warning regarding hypnosis scripts in general - any given script may or may not work for you, so instead of using scripts verbatim as they are presented, feel free to alter the wording to meet your particular needs and preferences.

The secret to your success with hypnosis is in your ability to use your imagination in a way that the desired outcome will feel REAL to you now. When you work with pre-written scripts, you may stumble upon some that work perfectly for you and others that will not do much for you. The entire purpose of the scripts is to help guide your imagination. Once you become experienced with using self-hypnosis, you won't need any more scripts. And even if you are practicing hypnosis on others, once you learn it well, then you also won't be using written scripts, but will guide the person into hypnosis in a way that is appropriate for the particular person.

But, well, it's true you have to begin somewhere and this book is alright to give you an idea, a taste of hypnosis. Just keep in mind that there is much more to hypnosis and if you really want to master it, keep reading, learning and experimenting.

On the positive side, this book is very easy to read. It will guide you through some sample sessions, different routines, and different applicatins of hypnosis.

There are much better books on hypnosis and if the information provided in this book doesn't work for you, it doesn't mean that you are not a good "hypnosis subject" - only that another approach may be more suitable for you - so don't stop with this book.

Format: Paperback
Hypnosis for Beginners is an excellent book for anyone wishing to learn more about self-hypnosis and the hypnosis of others. It includes complete scripts on regression, self-regression, self-hypnotism, and a full six session script for weight loss, teaching you routines for induction and deep relaxation that can be used for any purpose you desire. Hewitt breaks every session into routines which can be modified to meet your specific needs. The author thoroughly explains the state of hypnosis, many useful applications of it, and includes a full chapter of suggestions you can use to broaden your mind and improve yourself in many ways, all worded in an easy-to-read fashion. I have read this book several times and have found it extremely useful. Anyone interested in hypnosis, especially those who wish to begin using it to enhance the lives of themselves and others, should consider this book a must.
