read – worth looking at”
Mary-Lee Russell - Milton Keynes UK
was most impressed with this material; clearly you have given your book
a great deal of thought. I particularly liked the way you balanced the
human-interest elements of this account with touches of humour (for example,
the ‘ginger cat’ incident). The explanation of your own depression
helps to 'win over' those who are cynical towards hypnotists; they are
given the opportunity to identify with you in a unique way, which is a

reading your book right now. I think you have really valuable insights
into the issue of hypnosis. But, my God, the numbers of people who have
been hurt and misled.”

absolutely LOVE your book. - As a true expose by such a formerly renowned
hypnotist, this hypnosis book is unique, fraught with universal appeal.
Not only is such a book a novelty, but it is destined to become one of
the more controversial and entertaining works among seekers of truth in
the twenty first century."

the book is totally amazing!! I love it so much and thanks a
million, I think its so well put together. I already burnt the dinner
once cos I was reading it to Michael my partner, in the back of the car
while he was cleaning it. It’s brilliant. I'm not finished reading
it yet but its gripping stuff!! I’d say I will have to read it again
cos there is a lot to take in. Michael can’t get over it. Your a

book. I really enjoyed it.
Timely advice for me as I was considering seeing a hypnotherapist, wasn't
really aware of the dangers - thanks.
Had quite a few ah ha moments, the biggest one being with the way you
were sold on the hypnotist course originally. I believe practically every
technique you mention is employed by the more shady internet marketing
seminar gurus around these days as I have experienced similar sales processes
It was interesting to read about your spiritual experiences and the Rosicrucians
and I liked the metaphors for health relative to the parts of the body.
Recently, I have begun studying a course by C.C. Zain called the Light
of Egypt and in an amazing piece of synchronicity, a teacher of that philosophy
recommended meditation over hypnotic therapy to me just in the last week
without having much opportunity to go into why, so I am really glad I
found your material.
Was also interested in the psychic faculties people were experiencing,
people you describe as trance mediums.... the Light of Egypt course I
mention also advises against this kind of mediumship describing it as
feeling ESP whereas they do advocate developing what they call intellectual
ESP. Do you have any more insights into this or any other book recommendations?
Please keep me informed of any other hypnosis books you plan to write.
