Topic: Good starter hypnosis reading material?

I want to get more information on hypnotism etc.

I have "Practical Hypnotism" by x. "Woolf" I think, which is ok, but it's a bit thin, just a bunch of routines - some of which (the medical routines) are a bit dated.

Get Robert Baker's book "They call it hypnosis". That will give you a better understanding about it and then get a copy of Prmand McGill's New Encyclopedia of Stage Hypnosis" which will then help you more.

I went to Ebay to check out what they had in regards to hypnosis and came across Bill O'Connell's products. Has anyone ever read through his booklets/CDs and can you recommend him?

Bill has a complete course that covers a lot. It won't give you all the answers but it will give you many. But I caution you not to buy into his garbage about doing your first stage show seven days after studying his course. It won't happen. I will recommend it, but I don't believe he markets it the way he did when I bought it. Mine came with his stage hypnosis package, marketing package and flash cards all in one. I believe he sells them all seperately now. So what I am recommending is based on your getting all three products.
