    I have been a professional psychologist and hypnotherapist for over thirty years. In my professional opinion, NLP as created by Grinder and Bandler, (which they learned from an M.D. psychiatrist named Milton Erickson) is the most misleading dis-empowering form of hypnotherapy ever created. You will not learn how to do hypnosis or hypnotherapy from this book.

    Okay, I know Bandler and Grinder are the originators of NLP, but they can’t write readable copy to save their lives. Unless you are a true NLP geek, don’t waste your money on this unless you want to spend your time scratching your head saying “Is there something I’m missing here?” There are NLP books that are practical and helpful and can even be used by therapists. This is not one of them. I’m sure in person their classes are excellent and I am grateful for their contribution, but not for this book.

    Trance-formations is a fine book to give the new practitioner examples of how hypnosis and hypnotherapy can be used by a skilled practitioner- but I found it rather scant on actual method. There are better books availiable on the subject, but I’d still say that it is a worthwhile read, if only for the entertaining anecdotes within.

    This was one of my first NLP books. I still return to it now and then. If you want to learn some of Bandlers and Milton Ericksons tricks of hypnosis this is a must have. At the same time its now a classic in the field of hypnosis and NLP. Read it, use it and most of all have fun doing hypnosis and NLP. You can read more about me at The website is in Danish.
