5.0 out of 5 stars.  Spoken in His Own Voice, February 14, 2015
By A Friendly Voice
This is one of my favorite Ericksonian books. I've read about 30 books on Ericksonianism in the 4 years I've been at it. The video of the girl who shows up late to the class, who Erickson immediately uses as an hypnotic subject, is available on youtube, so you can see what is happening.

Erickson in his later years did not have the force in his voice he did in his earlier years. This is because he was able to use only 1/2 of his diaphragm and had no teeth. So, unlike his earlier material, you have to work a bit harder to penetrate some of his teachings. All his words are so carefully selected, you can spend a long time studying what he meant. Most of the things he said contained 2 or more simultaneous meanings. If you are philosophical or mystical you will have a better time comprehending. Although Erickson isn't generally viewed that way, because of his naturalistic approach, his material has a way of taking a person out of their body and into a transcendental place that is not a place. This is something overlooked by academia, who are too busy focusing not on the context but on the parts. The reason being an Ericksonian-style hypnotist is so difficult is because to be at his level, you have to be at his level. That is something that is a result of truth in reality, which goes quite far beyond the standard academic teachings of earth-bound universities, except perhaps in the philosophical department, or in the physics department if Dewey Larson's correct postulates are taught. Nevertheless, if you read his words with an open mind, curious about where his words can take you, you will benefit greatly -- although you may not realize just how that can be. That is not important for you know. In this world, there is not telling. For words only point. This book is simultaneously phenomenal and unreal.

Erickson is the most wise person to have lived in the last 1000 years. This book, written in his own language, reveals why.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Remember to wake up, August 14, 2013
By Gnomeman
As a student studying psychology, this is a great find. Throughout reading the book one notices that Erickson does not really use psychological theory to bring about change in a patient. Erickson sneaks in life experience implicitly in the stories he tells the group. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Erickson is asked about life and death. Erickson makes the joke, " just remember to wake up", I laughed at how simple but genius this statement was.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  An Ericksonian classic., March 08, 2008
This book is a direct transcript of a week long hypnosis/psychotherapy seminar performed by Milton Erickson at the end of his life, and at the height of his expertise. It reads with the hypnotic fluidity of a good novel while teaching a tremendous amount- about many things. Erickson weaves his way through various teaching tales while interacting with people in the seminar. The reader is pulled down into one story, only to emerge back into the world of a previous story from a few pages back. While adrift between worlds, the reader learns an awful lot about psychotherapy, hypnosis, human behavior, farm life, developmental processes- to name a few.
