    Wasn’t Satisfied This book is more about how the author learned about and worked with self-hypnosis. It doesn’t actually have well planned out steps to hypnotise yourself. It has a quick “how do ya do?” and then it goes back to the side-effects, the history of self-hypnosis, how they came to love hypnosis-I was looking for a step by step book on how to hypnotise yourself. This book didn’t meet my standards. If you want a book on the history of hypnotising, or what happens when you do it wrong, or how a random author came to love hypnosis, heres a book for you!

    Great older book! This was one of my first Hypnosis Books and is my favorite. It may be a little dated, but it is still a clear cut easy to read and understand guide to self hypnosis and hypnosis of others. Melvin Powers was a good author with a practical view for everything.

    A Classic Worth Having This book has a special place in my heart because it’s one of the books that got me interested in hypnosis and self hypnosis many years ago when books on this subject were scarce and hardly ever available in conventional bookstores.While some of the material is dated, much of it stands the test of time. If it’s basic information about self-hypnosis you want while staying on a budget(e.g. free on Kindle and 6.99 for the paperback), this is a great place to start. There is some practical “how to” in it; certainly enough to start experimenting.Melvin Powers, for those of us old enough to know, put out a LOT of very interesting books and material through his press, Wilshire Book Company. His other books on hypnosis included Advanced Techniques of Hypnosis, and he’s one of the few authors who mention the induction of hypnosis through the use of mesmerism (using the energy in one’s gaze). It may sound like hooey to some folks, but I predict that one day it’ll make a comeback. What’s old will become new again–no doubt under a term someone creates to make it more palatable for a modern audience.Melvin Powers has contributed to the current popularity of hypnosis and self hypnosis books. Of that, there is no doubt in my mind. If you are a collector of hypnosis books (like I am), then A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO SELF HYPNOSIS is a must-have. It’s a classic and for that reason, and a few others, I have given it FIVE STARS.
