This book comes in the guise of an introductory format but includes many advanced lessons. The author practices hypnosis as a performance art and not just in a setting for hypnotherapy. Jones teaches you how something works with the goal or intended direction. This is important because it makes the student less reliant on scripts. Jones does give the reader many scripts to follow and then breaks them down. I was particularly surprised to see that Jones devoted a section to hypnotic seals and PMC in this book. This is a great read for anyone practicing hypnosis or doing guided meditation.
