This was the first book I ever bought on hypnosis or self-hypnosis. I've added several more volumes on this topic over the subsequent years, some of which are quite good, but I keep coming back to LeCron because of his easy, down-to-earth and comfortable writing style, his practical approach, and his useful applications. I have used his examples and techniques to successfully overcome a number of personal difficulties. I'm a musician and stage fright has always been a problem for me. I used his techniques to overcome it and to build confidence in my playing ability. It helped me to stop smoking. When working through a mountain of material I needed to assimilate for my Master's thesis, I turned my subconscious loose on the problem before turning in for the night, giving myself the suggestion that my subconscious would find what I was looking for. It worked while I slept and came up with an insightful and unique theory, which became the foundation for my Thesis. While not strictly self-hypnosis, it was because of what I learned of the workings of the subconscious mind from this book that gave me the idea to do this. I've even used his pendulum technique during exams. I recall asking my physics professor if he minded if I used a pendulum for an upcoming mid-term. Not only did he not mind, he encouraged me to do so, and even took a moment out from his lecture to mention the technique to the class and the theory behind it -- namely that the subconscious mind likely already knows the answers and using the pendulum was one successful technique at getting to the truth. I was not the only student who used a pendulum for that mid-term. :) I scored high on it, too, and I've made occasional use of this technique ever since.
My attitude toward LeCron and the topic of self-hypnosis is, "What have you got to lose?" Nothing. The book is cheap, it's a rather slender volume that reads easily, so it's something that can be knocked off in a weekend, and the techniques certainly can do no harm, but can only help. Once you've had a taste of success with this book, you'll want more and it will provide you with the foundation to achieve your goals. To me, LeCron is a must read. Pure and simple.
