Appears ALMOST UNREAD! Just a touch of shelfwear otherwise a truly fine clean copy. From the publisher:"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 engrossing, factual book is a definitive study of hypnosis that illuminates this very unique aspect of creative human behavior."

First Edition
Hard Cover
Very Good





Hardcover 1st edition. Former owner's name on FFEP, lacks dj, otherwise a fine clean solid copy. From the publisher:"Supported by the New York Psychosomatic Cancer Study Group and the Gotthard Booth Society for Holistic Health. The wide publicity given to statistical surveys of cigarette and other tobacco habits in terms of an aetiological factor in lung cancer has relegated to the background many other possible components, particularly in the sphere of personality and emotional constellations. This work presents Gotthard Booth's studies of persons who developed cancer, with observations and an experimental approach, the results of which are given in categories of Rorschach responses in order to gain information about the subjects' personalities in terms of intellectual function, emotional control, present content, mental conflicts, creative imagination, and fundamental instinctive drives. From these studies and from the known aspects of the cancer situation the author suggests that cancer is an expression of the personality type and that the cancer patient is dominated by anal components. Rich in new ideas with a wealth of informative material to be considered in practical applications, not only in the field of psychopathology but also in general medicine."
