About this title


Presents a history of hypnosis, some theories behind it, its links with ESP and reincarnation, some actual accounts of people's being hypnotized, and instructions for practicing hypnotism yourself.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8 This smoothly written book begins with a brief history of hypnotism. Clearly organized chapters provide information on the uses of hypnotism today, from entertainment to medicine and law enforcement. Kirby's even-handed prose removes much of the sensationalism and encourages a realistic and inquiring approach to the subject. She delineates carefully between the known and speculative benefits of hypnotism. Controversial areas, such as the reliability of hypnotism as a law enforcement tool, are presented impartially. Discussions of the relationship hypnotism has to ESP and reincarnation increase understanding of all of those concepts. Photographs illustrate throughout; the reading list contains adult titles. Libraries with Larry Kettelkamp's Hypnosis: the Wakeful Sleep (Morrow, 1975) will want this book for its broader scope and clearer detail; others will need it to fill a gap.
