Designed as a practical desktop reference, this official publication of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis is the largest collection of hypnotic suggestions and metaphors ever compiled. It provides a look at what experienced clinicians actually say to their patients during hypnotic work.
A book to be savored and referred to time and again, this handbook will become a dog-eared resource for the clinician using hypnosis.

This book contains an extensive collection of hypnotic scripts, examples, and advice. Everyone can benefit from it, as it communicates ideas which both the novice and professional can learn from. All of the people who've contributed to it are professional and trustworthy. I am recommending it because it is the best book I have seen in recent times. I like to study Hypnosis, and it has taught me to appreciate the work of others, and to consider Hypnosis a form of Art.
