I found this book to be informative yet a little off from description. I would say it to be more along the lines of Hypnosis and a bit of connective ESP. It provided a good foundational and historical introduction to some early origins and examples of hypnosis usage. The most frustrating thing I found was reading it on a nook because of the layout of the pages being in single magazine column per page. That being said having to flip twice as many pages as with other books in order to equal one page. All in all, it was quite an interesting and somewhat informative read that ultimately filled in some more blanks as well as offer some insight and ideas for further exploration.
