GET THIS BOOK.
For less than the price of a "stellar-money" Latte, (at the time of my review it is FREE), you get a survey of all recorded work on mental research as it pertains to para-psychological fields.
Extremely well thought out, Godefroy penned a marvelous work. His work shows everyone "the ones behind the curtain", while pointing out all the curtains in the field and introducing you to all the people there. In this work he traces the heritage of mental imagery, meditation, hypnosis in various forms, and many other traditions excellently.
I have researched many of these things as an amateur for 20 years, and he speaks on topics with which I have familiarized myself, with poignancy, facility, brevity, and practicality, and he does it all jargon-free. What words he introduces to the reader, he defines, and shows how it relates to other concepts already presented.
The reader is left with much to ponder, and a way to get it done.
One who picks up this book hoping to know about mental research and techniques is akin to he who found his way into the classical Labyrinth, and at the doorpost was an easy map to Daedalus's laboratory.
I honestly do not know why this book isn't on the bestseller list at the top of its genre at Amazon. I found it late 2013 in the New Releases section, purchased it, read most of it, and over the last few years I have had many occasions to reread sections for its insights and depth of research.
I tend to give praise only when it is well merited, and years ago I realized the only times writing a review is worth it is when something is extremely useful, or extremely the opposite of useful.
GET IT. If you are truly interested in these subjects, and have not spent much money yet on any of them, you will save yourself umpteen dollars by reading this and knowing what to invest in later.
First it should be pointed out this is a bit of an exploration of the paranormal / psychic variety. I've always found that sort of thing interesting so it wasn't off putting and if you are in to that then this book may be of some interest to you.
Secondarily as a guide on the subject of hypnosis it was interesting to me since it did diverge into other fields that I haven't really explored or even heard of (psychocybernetics and sophrology). From the stand point of induction methods it was interesting to be presented with some historical context that I've found lacking in some of my other studies.
I can't say this is strictly a guide book for hypnotic induction (creating alpha states as the author calls it) but there is some small guidance where that is concerned.
Over all i found it to be an interesting read even if it was not what I originally thought it was supposed to be.
