Book Overview

They Call It Hypnosis paints a clear picture of what hypnosis is and is not, what it can and cannot accomplish, and how it can be misused and abused. Baker describes its potential for preventing or arresting pain and outlines future directions for the role of suggestion in the clinic and the laboratory. This engrossing, factual book is a definitive study of hypnosis that illuminates this very unique aspect of creative human behavior.

Excellent summary of theories of hypnosis

Contrary to the previous reviewer, the book is extensively documented with references to the work of leading hypnosis researchers (especially ch. 3, "Hypnosis: Recent and Contemporary Views"). The book has its flaws (search for "Robert Baker" on the web to find some of them), but this is an excellent introduction to the subject.

The BEST book on Hypnosis, bar none.

I learned more about Hypnosis from this book than any other that I have read. A completely different approach than most.

Good summary of theories of hypnosis

This book is an excellent summary of theories of hypnosis with an emphasis on criticisms of state theories. The author argues for social/cognitive non-state theories. The book is marred only by the fact that many passages are lifted directly from the authors being summarized, without being noted as such.
