Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A creative genius at his profession often has a tattered personal life. Likewise, a great man is supposedly never a hero to his family. Erickson, the "father" of medical hypnosis, seems to have been an exception to both rules. In this warmly affectionate tribute by family and friends, he stands out as a man who used his own experience as the conscious inspiration for many of his professional coups. For example, shortly after being stricken with polio as a teenager, he undertook a two-month-long recuperative canoe trip. His journal of the trip reveals a person who believed that healing comes from within. This person would later become founding president of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and set trends in tapping the curative power of the mind. Chockablock with Erickson's humor, personal notes, and family photographs, as well as a transcript of a clinical consultation, this book is more memoir-cum-scrapbook than biography, which the unconventional psychotherapist well might have relished.
