Serious books on hypnosis and NLP

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer (Hong Kong)
The list author says: "Whether in the U.S., Europe, Asia or anywhere else on the planet, almost everyone is intrigued quite naturally and instantly by the word "Hypnosis". Yet many authors only teach people to relax their subjects step by step. One so-called hypnosis school in Hong Kong even covers exclusively the progressive relaxation induction throughout their entire course. No wonder many of their students withdrew from their course and called it a scam. Operating in nearly the same market sector are those trainers from various NLP groups, and some of them are mongering half-day hypnotist certification courses. So, what is Hypnosis really? What sorts of miracle can it produces? I hope you will find a more realistic source of information under this List."

1.  Handbook of Hypnotic Suggestions and Metaphors by D. Corydon Hammond

  "Simplification of Gestalt Therapy.  Must read for any serious talk psychotherapists.  It alone contributes to many of my earlier techniques built on my practical translation and communication background.  Be ready to change your mind about what reality "is".  If you can manage this, you'll find everything else easier to digest.  This is followed by a Book 2"

5.  Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. Volume 1 by John Grinder
