"Michael Yapko's 4th edition of Trancework: An Introduction to the Practice of Clinical Hypnosis, is a masterpiece. The book provides a balanced and thorough state of the science overview of the field, and is filled with practical approaches and effective techniques that clinicians using hypnotic approaches will find invaluable. Yapko's depth of knowledge, decades of experience, and high level of respect for the client and practicing clinician are evident on every page. He knows what works, and how to clearly communicate this to the reader. Trancework is a gift to all clinicians wishing to have a better understanding of hypnosis, and become more effective in its use." - Mark P. Jensen, PhD, Professor and Vice Chair for Research, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington Medical Center
"This is an almost encyclopedic compendium of information for anyone serious about studying hypnosis. Michael Yapko's presentations are always well received. It is inclusive and well indexed as both a study guide and reference book. I recommend it highly." - Dabney M. Ewin, MD, Clinical Professor of Surgery and Psychiatry, Tulane Medical School
"The art of therapy is the fusion of scientific understanding and clinical insight. Michael Yapko's 4th edition of Trancework is an artistic achievement. He presents the latest neuroscientific research in easy to understand fluid prose and he takes on the controversies in our field with wisdom and grace. He describes interpersonal communication with uncanny sensitivity and humor, and uses hi insights to enhance the foundation of all our work–the doctor-patient relationship. In the end, he teaches us that the adjunctive use of clinical hypnosis opens our doors to wonderful possibilities of enhanced patient care. Dr. Yapko has done it again!" - Peter B. Bloom, MD, Past President, International Society of Hypnosis; Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine
"Trancework 4th Edition exceeds the highest of expectations established from the previous editions. Michael Yapko has successfully accomplished the difficult task of blending extensive and current research with highly understandable, interesting, and clinically insightful text. This comprehensive book covers a wide range of topics that well represent the many facets of the field of hypnosis, and inspires readers to see the relevance of hypnotic principles and methods in virtually every clinical interaction. Yapko's depth of experience is evident on every page and gives everyone from the basic learner to the seasoned practitioner words for what they need to know as well as what they didn't know they knew. Trancework gets my highest recommendation." - Betty Alice Erickson, MS, in private practice, Dallas, TX
"For almost 30 years, Michael Yapko has been a leader in the field of clinical hypnosis, and Trancework has been the 'go-to' handbook for the novice and expert practitioner alike. A master clinician, with loads of practical experience and sage advice to share, Yapko is also attentive to scientific evidence–not just the results of studies of clinical effectiveness, but also the basic science, psychological and physiological, on which clinical practice must be based if it is going to succeed. This fourth edition is thoroughly updated, and belongs on the shelf of everyone who is interested in clinical hypnosis." - John Kihlstrom, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

This does offer keen insight into the ways that trance can be best used in Hypnotherapy. For instance the chapter going through trance phenomena explains in what circumstances it would be best to use said method.
As a whole I would recommend the book as reference material to transition from basic to more in depth knowledge about hypnotherapy.
