Trance-formations by Bandler and Grinder
The practice of hypnosis is filled with mysticism, and many openly criticize it because they simply don’t understand or have been fooled by a false practitioner. This book breaks down the process of hypnosis, and Richard Bandler and John Grinder, founders of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, explain the techniques and methods used therein.
Reading purpose: To capture the atmosphere of early NLP seminars and the attitude with which they worked, mixed with a glimpse of the early methods around hypnosis, trance induction and utilization.
Writing style: Seminar transcripts. This book is not written in a typical fashion, with one concept logically flowing after another – it’s a snapshot of a live event.
Soft cover book.
