"….This is a splendid book and, arguably, one of the best books on hypnosis and its clinical application that this reviewer has encountered…..There are few tomes on hypnosis that I have found as stimulating. This is an aided, to a large extent, by the authors' clarity of expression….The book is entirely comprehensible whether it is being used by a novitiate or someone skilled in hypnotherapy….This most readable book is more than a reference work….[It] is a book which all clinical practitioners using hypnosis should have on their library shelf. I even like the dust jacket design!"
—The International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis
"The authors carefully and systematically depict a multidimensional systems perspective for practical clinical and research evaluation of treatments of illnesses conceived as complexly developed and maintained as a function of various contributing factors. The integrated approach is scholarly, analytical, and thorough….This volume is readable and well illustrated with clinical material."
