Format: Hardcover
This is a excelent book for those ones that want to know some deep knowledge about hypnosis.
With this book you are not going to learn how to do hypnosis, but you will understand some of the presupositions that are known in hypnosis.

This book is a great choice. It is perhaps the best of the four volume set. Gives an excellent overview of Erickson's approach to hypnosis.

Format: Hardcover
This is the best starting book for anyone who wants to delve into hypnosis. But it is often available as used book only and is the first in a 4-vol set. But soon (sometime in early 2006), there will be a 8-vol (yes, 8 books in a set) set in a single CD that also comes with audio and bonus video and at $75!

Back about this book... It tells you experiments and findings of tests conducted on hypnotized subjects and how they react to suggestions by the "hypnotizer" and also what happens when they are told to do things (while in trance) that they would not do in normal consciousness.

The sections on Trance and Suggestions are excellent; perhaps the best OVERVIEW of trance and how suggestions work.

Much of the material is suitable for a hypnotherapist to use in a pre-talk to trance induction.
