What a fresh surprise Sommer's book is! Everything is fresh, imaginative, and never derivative. Here's an author who understands that hypnotherapy does not come in a can, but must be prepared fresh and spontaneously, using ever-changing combinations of ingredients.
If you want a book of recipes, this is not for you. If you want to become more creative and effective, then look no further.
IF the reader actually practices and experiments with the concepts in this book, he/she will be much more effective and artful in using language in general and the use of indirect language specifically.
This is not a "hypnosis how-to," I recommend it for novice hypnotists and anyone intersted in communicating more artfully.
It is not intended to give an overview or introduction to Ericksonian hypnotic language, but rather to assist you in practicing the use of this language for your needs. Milton Erickson is a psychotherapist who was mainly known for its effective use of careful wording to help the messages get through the filters of the conscious mind to the unconscious mind.
Very well planned, highly recommended for those interested in practicing Ericksonian methods.
