They Call It Hypnosis (Hardcover)

They Call It Hypnosis By Robert A. Baker Cover Image


This engrossing, factual book 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 is the definitive study of hypnosis that illuminates this very unique aspect of creative human behavior.
