A Strange Way to Stage Hypnosis by Christan P. Taylor(c. 2017) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Chris Taylor (aka Chris Doc Strange) has written a really entertaining and useful book here. To be honest I have zero interest in being a hypnotist (in my early twenties I read a few books on self-hypnosis, but that was a long time ago and I haven’t really thought about it since), but I found this book not only a really good primer on pretty much everything to do with becoming a professional stage hypnotist, but it provides a good grounding for anyone performing to the public, and in fact has some good advice on life in general.
Chris holds no punches and it is quite refreshing to read a book in the magic related arts that is so honest, humble and to the point. Chris does not oversell anything here, including his performances and experience, and comes over as someone who genuinely cares about the art and human beings in general. He certainly is not in it just for the money!
If you are serious about learning to become a professional Stage Hypnotist this is the perfect place to start. Chris takes you through how to start, all the pitfalls, and provides tons of real world examples. He also talks about things like insurance and the stage equipment required. It is all here and should you still want to read more you could also try out Ormond McGill’s work: The New Encyclopedia of Stage Hypnotism. But I would start with Chris’s book, it is much easier to get into and you’ll learn something about life and performing even if you never hypnotize anyone.
