Just bought this book, AND I love it!
Fun With Hypnosis: The Complete How-To Guide
Learn to Hypnotize in 59 Minutes or Less!
Dance like a Chicken, Bark like a Dog, Quack like a Duck
The book gets 5 1/2 out of 6 stars. No kidding! Just what I've needed.
I've read the first two chapters, and I should be ready to go by tomorrow morning.

Good book. I read my dad's copy last summer; only took about an hour. I use the Lemon Test, Stuck Fingers, and the Fingers in the Ears at parties. The strength tests are fun, and so is Forget Your Name.

I hope by "about an hour" you mean at or under 59 minutes, otherwise you should get a refund.

I'm a very slow reader, so it may take a couple of hours for me. But I'm sure it's worth the extra time. Smile

Sounds like a great beginning book for learning waking hypnosis.

Based on the comments here, and the reviews on Amazon.com, I ordered this book. It seems like just what I want: something that offers practical 'hypnosis' demonstrations without going very far into the mechanics and nuances that would only benefit somebody doing a full Hypnotism show. Thanks for the heads up, Slim! My copy should be coming in a couple days (2-Day Shipping was my only option! I won't complain Smile)

Martin is right. It sounds like a great option for those interested in waking tests/physical demonstrations, without having to get into the trance state directly.

Good luck with it.

I think that you have the wrong idea here. This is NOT a book about Hypno-Tricks. It is a complete guide to stage hypnotism. Smile

I stand corrected. However, this is only the first in a collection of books, DVDs, and other training to get out on a stage and perform. Reading is fine; however, it takes actually seeing what you have learned in use that causes you to turn the corner to actual use of material.

Ill second Dannydoyle on that. I am a certified hypnotherapist and I don't think hypnosis is something you play with like a party game.

Obviously your new here! MOST here want that.

I am with you brother!

It to me is like those "Learn piano in 13 second" things on TV. Yea you get some notes out, but your not a musician really. The difference is obvious.

Its not OK for me to use it at a party, but it is OK for you to use it on stage??? Sounds like a bit of a double standard here.

Ok here is the difference.

The stage is a controled environment, insurance covers those on a stage. Not at a party.

Like we said the "waking tests" make sense to do at a party, the deeper things, should be controled. No double standard, and if you knew the first thing about actual hypnosis you would see there is no double standard.

Sure there is. There is a kid the same age as me saying he is a CHT and saying that hypnosis should not be done at parties, yet he says he does it himself on his web page. Reads like a double standard to me.

Ok if you are talking about ME having a double standard, read any of my posts.

I am NOT a kid your age, I work 5 nights a week doing a hypnosis show.

So lets be clear. I don't think there is one thing wrong with doing the things at parties like the "abnormal lift" or finger locking or eyelid closure.

I think that when you get into deeper trance state things, it should be contained. To a stage or to an office, where there is things like insurance to cover if someone falls down and cracks their head.

Seems like one standard to me. You be the judge.

This is a horse which has been (and will continue to be) beaten long after its death.

I'll offer this . . . I personally went to a Post-Secondary School to study NLP, Group Mind Dynamics, the placebo effect and ecstatic states of consciousness. Granted, I was training to practice hypnotherapy; but I cannot and would not recommend someone who only has an hour worth of "training" to begin hypnotizing others. It is neither safe or responsible. Period.

Now, not everyone will come across problems right away, but it is a given that if you work long enough you will run into some heavy s***, and in this case; you are not qualified or experienced enough to handle it.

The greatest piece of advice I can give to anyone who seeks to perform hypnotic stage shows and demonstrations of altered states of consciousness IS TO GET PROFESSIONAL TRAINING. You are doing yourself and others a dis-service by not being properly trained before you attempt an induction and further hypnosis work.

What if someone said they were a Medical Doctor and yet had no schooling or practical experience. Would you allow this person to work with you? Of course not. Hypnosis is serious, and you deserve to be well trained.

Kind regards,
Jerome Finley.

I was not talking about you; your's was not the post I quoted. And I'm sure you're over 21! Much over 21. Smile

BTW I'm certified too, I took Dr. Royle's course.

Danny Doyle - Dr. Jonathan Royle.

TT2 - I've been playing doctor since I was 12 and never had a complaint. But I don't hypnotise people at parties, that would be irresponsible. (But dancing like a chicken would be funny.)
