Tom Silver This book is one of the best books ever written on Hypnotism. I have always wanted to write a book on the age old science of hypnotism that would help people to understand this important science and art that has been practiced for thousands of years in different cultures all over the world. I wanted this book to also give the reader the chance to actually learn how to hypnotize people and how to use hypnotism for healing purposes as well as for entertainment. I co-wrote this book with Ormond McGill who is considered the "Dean of American Hypnotists". Ormond McGill has performed and practiced stage hypnotism and hypnotherapy all over the world for over 50 Years. Ormond McGill is one of the most recognized living authorities on the field of hypnotism. Ormond McGill himself says that he is very proud of this book and that "The How-To Book of Hypnotism is one of the very best books he has ever written on hypnosis.

I am also very proud to have worked with Ormond McGill and to have co-written this easy to read and fun to read book on hypnotism. Our first printing of this book was in January 2000. Now Revised in 2001.
I am very proud to say without a doubt that I have also taken the science hypnotism to the "Outer Limits" by my own accomplishments in the field of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
I have had my own one hour C.B.S. National Television Special called "Hypnotized", where I hypnotized real people in real places and had them perform all kinds of fun and amazing things while under hypnosis.
I set a "World's Record" in Taiwan Republic of China, by hypnotizing over 3,800 people all at the same time through an interpreter in Mandarin Chinese with the help of Dr. Huang my interpretor.
I introduced the Taiwan Department of Defense to the use of "Forensic Hypnosis" and Hypnotherapy and received a "Gold Plate" of Honor from the Taiwan Minister of Defense in July 1997.
I have also performed hypnosis demonstrations on a number of different national television shows and radio shows all over the world during the past 15 years.
I have helped thousands of people change their lives by utilizing hypnotherapy and self hypnosis.
Ormond McGill and myself are very proud of this wonderful and easy to read book and manual on Hypnosis which we call "The How-To Book of Hypnotism".

It is good for children and beginners as a *stage act* inspiration. Book is big on anecdotes about performance hypnotism acts, not much down-to-earth practical instruction on actually *how too do* real serious hypnosis.
Very basic "entertainment hypnotism" that a young adolescent student will like.
Like a few other reviewers, I just couldn't see a reason to rave over this book. My middle school daughter did like it though, and she also likes books on basic stage magic.
If you are looking for motivational literature on getting together a career of hypnotizing people at parties or events, this book might motivate you. I just don't think it will inform in any detail *how too*.
Most suggestions (pattern scripts) in this book are based on the fomula "when I count to three, you'll do so and so", or "when you awaken, you'll do so and so" and that's it.
Part of this book deals with Mesmeric (magnetic) healing, a topic that is not that often mentioned in modern hypnosis books (except books by Ormond McGill), but is more thoroughly covered in books dealing with energy healing.
If you already have Ormond McGill's Encyclopedia of Stage Hypnosis, then you'll find that a good deal of material mentioned in this book has already been covered there.
As for learning how to induce hypnosis over the phone or through the mail, get books that deal with hypnotic language patterns, sleight of mouth, and learn some indirect suggestions - Ericksonian hypnosis.
The authors also make too many other elobarate and ridiculous claims as if they were fact and not opinion. For example, page 87 you are told you can put a subject in a trance easily for over 48 hours, suspending all bodily functions, as easily as you can suggest their little stage jokes. Let's not forget the pages dedicated to ESP, telepathy, and magnetic healing through hypnosis. Way too much fantasy there.
However, all that aside, if you are looking for a quick read and your main interest is to have some fun at parties, than this book is for you. You probably don't care about all the scientific stuff anyway, so why bother. This will teach you a few inductions and some fun stage tricks and techniques. Quick and easy, just don't expect miracles and expect to pass on a lot of stuff as pure hocus pocus.
BUT, if you want a more detailed and scientific look, along with various induction techniques for professional use, this book is NOT the book you want. It will not address true Hypnotherapy, only parlor tricks. It will not help you with problem inductions, problems with trance states, proper wording of suggestions and other professional needs. Try HYPNOTHERAPY by Dave Elman, or TRANCEWORK by Michael Yapko. Fortunately I ordered those as well when I got this one.
