5.0 out of 5 stars.  What an amazing comprehensive manual, March 05, 2010
By Sunspower (Tempe, Arizona USA)
If you're looking for a way to get very familiar with what Milton Erickson and those who followed his work are doing, this is the best book of which I know to do that. You get a tremendous panorama of techniques related to neurolinguistic programming, family therapy, strategies of helping/empowerment, hypnosis, use of client metaphor and narrative, ways of building rapport and responsiveness and perhaps the most important of all Ericksonian constructs/approaches/strategies, utilization.

If that weren't enough, Battino and South offer some applications of these rich techniques to family work, dentistry and a number of other concerns our clients present.

I have been a practitioner for over 14 years and this book puts so much together very, very well. I might recommend this book to my own supervisees over practically every other one out there on the skills we can learn to best empower our clients.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  I wonder if you can imagine, February 10, 2009
By nlp trainer (San Francisco)
I first heard of Milton H. Erickson through NLP. The Milton model of nlp is named after Milton Erickson who used artfully vague language language patterns to put patients in trance. My Voice Will Go with You: The Teaching Tales of Milton H. Ericksonby Sidney Rosen fueled my initial curiosity. That book focused mainly on Erickson's storytelling method, and his often counterintuitive yet incredibly effective approach to therapy, often through using healing metaphors.

I found his skill with language patterns particularly fascinating, and inspiring, although there is far more to Erickson's approaches than that.

So, when I trained in nlp and hypnotised many people practising with his scripts, I was quite astounded at how effective his indirect approach was in putting people in trance. I don't know if you can imagine how much fun it was learning how to stack metaphors, and use embedded commands.

A professional hypnotherapist and fellow trainer on my course recommended this book, saying it was better than any other four books about Erickson, and that it also could be used as a teaching manual.

Erickson's daughters Roxanna and Betty contribute a foreword to this book, as does Ernest Rossi. If both of Milton's daughter use this book as a training manual at their institute, then....

I own many books on Erickson, and my friend is quite correct. This book is better any other four books on Erickson.

If you are wondering about how this book relates to nlp, the authors do cover the different language patterns in much detail, and even explain the meta model. In this book I particularly like the popcorn metaphor. You might wonder what eating popcorn has to do with premature ahem closure, you'll wander know more after reading that segment.

No stone is left unturned by the authors in putting together this truly brilliant and comprehensive manual. It is my pleasure to recommend this book, and the other one I mentioned, as two must own books on Erickson.

If you are not already a trained hypnotherapist, may I say from personal experience, there is no substitute for taking a hypnosis or nlp training.

A person can learn many things..and a curious person can learn so much, and when you go deep inside it's like something opens up, and the more you open up to the opportunities the more opportunities open up, and you discover you're developing new neural understandings that will fuel your curiosity even further...

I hope this is helpful. Have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Simply, one of the best manuals you could ever ask for!, February 27, 2008
By Randy (United States)
This manual is truly a Master work... the book touches on everything from early history of hypnosis, NLP language patterns, metaphor, inductions, etc. The book is written in language very easy to read and understand. The ideas are brought forward very clearly, and one gets a sense of the personality and substance of the authors themselves. There are many books out there about Erickson, his work and techniques... This one should be at the top of any list and a must have for the library of every practitioner of the art.
