You are given hypnotic misdirection and the inner secrets of stage hypnotism are revealed. The author's illustrations are clear and definite. The text is easy to read, in plain and understandable language. Every phase of the subject is covered. Remember -no stooges-no assistants- just you!Few kindred arts can fit as naturally into a magician's repertoire as an exhibition of hypnotism. Unfortunately, however, very few magicians have ever mastered this skillful practice and have, thus, missed a most valuable adjunct to their programs. But now comes a ready solution. Here in this book is a complete revealment of the inner secrets of stage hypnotism presented in a very logical manner-by first showing what hypnotism is and what it can do through actual instruction in how to hypnotize and then, proceeding directly on into the modus operandi of stage hypnotism itself. The little subtleties, insights and techniques which only come from careful research and practical presentation are also given, making this book one of the most valuable of its kind ever offered to magicians.
